If you were looking for a Monte on harness racing Victoria Derby night then it could have turned out to be in the ridden trot race and Lysenko.

Ridden patiently by Australian Monte Queen Haley Toulmin, Lysenko waited for the early burn then produced inside the final lap to demolish her rivals by 30 metres.

Early leader, and Monte King, Motu Young Jacob was pressured mid-race and stuck on bravely for third but was never a threat in the lane.

Kyvalley Rap ran on into second for Chris Lang Snr. in a time of 2:03.2 with the last half coming in 63.3secs.

Haley Toulmin (23) now has a 10 point lead in the race to a Scandinavian trip for the leading rider of the series with Darly Douglas (13) next best.
