Astute Whittlesea trainer/driver Mark Peace enjoyed a successful evening at Cranbourne on Saturday August 2, chalking up a stable double with the Jet Laag/On Baller gelding Baron Kinley taking the Teraski Breakers 2-Y-0 Pace over 1609 metres and the former Kiwi Frankie Maguire the NHP Fibox 3-Y-0 Pace over 2105 metres.

Baron Kinley starting from gate six making his 4th appearance at the races, moved forward sharply from four back in the running line in the last lap to lead on turning and defied all challengers to score from Classical Musician which was very wide on the home turn and Flying Indi Air (one/one) in a 2-00.9 rate.

Frankie Maguire's form read ok with 8 placings from 19 outings, mostly at Alexandra Park in Auckland and he started a firm favourite when having his first outing on Australian soil, having last fronted the starter on July 18 when a head second to Lobell in 2-04.1.

Settling three back along the markers from gate two, Frankie Maguire (Live Or Die/French Classic) was smothered for most of the race, before charging home along the sprint lane to blowse the leader Positionofstrength in a 2-01.8 rate, with Scarlet Lilly third after trailing the pacemaker.
