Listen to what trainer Ben Yole had to say about Lu Way Lord's latest win.

In recent times hardly a harness racing meeting in Tasmania passes without Ben Yole training a winner and last Sunday night's meeting at UBET Park Hobart was no exception.

Yole produced one winner in the form of six-year-old battler Lu Way Lord but the win was extra special as the gelding is owned and was bred by his parents Wayne and Louise Yole who have recently relocated from South Australia to Tasmania.

Lu Way Lord (It Is I-Sharni Mac Cailen) put the writing on the wall at his previous outing in Launceston where he finished ninth of 12 but encountered interference at crucial stages of the race.

The gelding enjoyed a cosy run in the one-out line with cover and when driver Mark Yole called on the son of It Is I for the big effort in the home straight he powered home to score a convincing win.

Lu Way Lord ($14.60) hit the line 1-1/2 metres clear of race favourite Charlie James ($2.20) with the leader Frankie Falzoni fading to finish third almost two metres astern.
