When Harnesslink looked for a harness racing stable to preview for this years races at the Westport Xmas meeting, we decided to do a runner by runner assessment of Margo Nyhan's team with her partner Peter Davis doing most of the driving.
Margo and Peter were only too obliging in giving us what we needed but stressed when they had done similar previews in the past the team had gone terribly.
So after Game Changer missed away in race 1, they thought the preview curse would continue.
However race 4 put that theory to bed once and for all.
Stable runner Sarah Palin in the hands of Robbie Close stepped straight to the front which she held for the first 600 metres before the other stable runner The Zigmeister with Peter Davis in the bike zipped around to the front.
Keeping up a steady tempo mid race, The Zigmiester shot clear on the last corner and although October Rain and Gavin Smith closed quickly, The Zigmeister still had three quarters of a length to spare when he reached the finishing line.
To make matters even better for Margo and Peter, Sarah Palin stuck on well for third.
Peter thought The Zigmeister, a son of Monkey Bones, wouldn't be far away going by his recent runs in Canterbury.
“He went 3:22 for 2600 metres at Addington at his last start which makes him very competitive on the coast.”
“His main problem this season has been over racing in the field”
“However once he gets to the front, he relaxes beautiful and you could throw the reins in the dust sheet.”
“Once he got to the front today, I was pretty confident he would be hard to beat.”
“ He is still learning at this stage and I think there is a fair bit of improvement in him yet,” Peter said.
Harnesslink readers who took in the preview would have been thrilled with the $12:70 dividend that The Zigmeister paid today.
