Seven year old Fully Loaded/Really And Truly gelding Its His Fault registered his first harness racing success since January 2008, when victorious in the Decron Horse Care Pace for C0 class at the Cranbourne harness race meeting on Tuesday March 6, no doubt delighting owner Garry Rogers who raced under the banner of Ulverstone.

Making only his 15th appearance at the races, Its His Fault trained locally at Longwarry by Michael Hughes and driven by Jodi Quinlan, enjoyed a sweet passage one/one from gate four, with the almost unbackable favourite Cold Major ($1.20) leading from the pole.

Sprinting sharply in the last lap, Its His Fault joined Cold Major approaching the home turn and the pair engaged in a two horse way all the way up the running, with Its His Fault prevailing by a nose in a rate of 2-05.2. Cyclonedomic finished a further 10 metres away after trailing the leader.

Art Major/Makin Faces gelding Artique snared the Warehouse Sales 2-Y-0 Pace over 1609 metres on debut for Drouin co-trainers Gary and Debbie Quinlan in 2-00.9.

Enjoying the run of the race from gate two trailing Magnum Express (gate three), Artique when eased away from the inside on straightening, finished strongly to gain the day in advance of Im Smouldering (one/three) off a three wide trail on the back of the third placegetter Mister Metro in the final circuit.

Five year old Bettors Delight/Ester Bromac gelding Eton Bromac has certainly hit top form, bringing up two wins in succession by taking out the Hygain Feeds Pace for C6 to C8 class over 2080 metres.

Trained at Ladyship Lodge Modewarre (Geelong) by Joanne Arneill and driven by Brian Gath, Eton Bromac surged forward from outside the front row to assume control on the first turn after the pole marker and favourite Mapua Legend went off stride.

Given a comfortable time, Eton Bromac (bred by Bromac Lodge), defied all challenges in accounting for Galatos which raced in the open for the majority of the trip, the exception being when Mapua Legend sprinted to be outside the leader on the home turn. Good Bye after a cosy passage on the back of the leader finished third. The mile rate 2-00.2.

Youthful Kilmore trainer Brett Chapman was in the winners stall when 8-Y-0 Cam's Trickster/Paradaiso gelding Pomardi saluted the judge in the Sen Sportsentral Pace for C1 class over 2080 metres.

Driven by Robbie Walters, Pomardi from gate three was given the run of the race trailing the poleline pacemaker Rockn Katie, before easing wide on straightening and finishing best to score from Count Of Rowan (three back the markers) and Rockn Katie in a rate of 2-01.7.

It was Pomardi's first victory since December 2010 at Victor Harbor (S-A).
