Training a treble of winners is nothing new to Great Western's Peter Manning and that's what happened at the Terang harness racing fixture on Tuesday March 28, with Going Commando, Rough And Tumble and Effective Torque all greeting the judge.

Ultra consistent 5-Y-0 Cr Commando/Brite Paula gelding Going Commando finally broke his Australian maiden status, when successful in the Lew & Olive Welsh Memorial Trotters Handicap for T0 or better class over 2180 metres.

Driven by daughter Kerryn, Going Commando began with plenty of zest from the 10 metre mark to lead virtually throughout in a 2-01.9 rate, easily accounting for Outpunch Encounter which trailed and Alabamadon (one/one – three wide home turn).

Four year old Western Terror/Torquen Power gelding Rough And Tumble chalked up his 5th victory, by taking The Standard Pace for C2 class over 2180 metres with Kerryn again in the sulky.

Restrained from gate four to possie four back in the moving line, Rough And Tumble was sent forward three wide solo racing for the bell and sustained the effort to outstay the hot favourite Panorama Wealth which faced the open outside the roughie Penny Bunger, with the pair drawing clear on the final bend.

Thewaytolive finished third after following the winner home. The mile rate 1-59.7.

Iron 5-Y-0 Jennas Beach Boy/Hot Reaction mare Effective Torque (Matt Craven) having her 111th outing (27 this season), led throughout to snare the Phonse Hickey Memorial Pace for C5 to C7 class over 2180 metres in a rate of 2-01.1.

Beginning a lot quicker than usual from gate three, Effective Torque had little difficulty in crossing the polemarker Hyland Zali (Kerryn Manning) to lead throughout in defeating the Mt Gambier visitor Pure Jasper which raced outside her, with Hyland Zali holding her spot to wind up third.

Astute Bannockburn (Geelong) trainer Geoff Webster landed his first winner for veteran Narre Warren owner/breeder Arthur Fullwood after taking over the team, when beautifully bred Christian Cullen/Vernett gelding Narre Boy snared the Noir Rover 3-Y-0 Pace over 1680 metres on debut.

With stable reinsman Greg Sugars holding the reins, Narre Boy from gate four came out running to lead and was never extended in winning easily in a 1-59.5 mile rate from Special Agent Oso which trailed and Mystic Sunset (three back the markers).

Mt Gambier’s David Drury is proving to be a giant killer when making his regular visits over the border and landed the Barastoc Pace for C0 class over 2180 metres with heavily supported 4-Y-0 Holmes Hanover/Gilt Laughter gelding Guapo Bromac.

In what was a tough effort, Guapo Bromac going for three straight wins after two Mt Gambier victory’s, did it hard but did it well after racing wide for the entire trip from gate six, dashing clear on the home turn to score in 2-00.5 over Tartan Art (one/one), with Brazillian Monk another of the Webster team running home late for third.
