My Hard Copy

Harness racing driver Clinton Hall continues to show week in week out what a talented reinsman he is and last night at Bunbury he was at it again with a peach of a drive on My Hard Copy.

The West Australian Pacing Cup winner was having his first run back since January and had drawn awkwardly at barrier five on the second line over the mile which saw punters let him go out at odds of seven to one.

Clint never hustled him early and he settled second last in the running line before hooking on to Jimmy Johnstone's back when Colin Brown sent that horse forward three wide with a lap to travel.

My Hard Copy got a lovely trail into the race and only peeled four wide on the point of the turn and flew down the outside to claim the stablemate Crusader Banner in the shadows of the post for a stylish victory.

Jimmy Johnstone stuck on gamely for third in front of a slightly disappointing Our Major Mark who trailed Crusader Banner the whole trip.

My Hard Copy paced the mile in 1:55.5 with closing sectionals of 56.1 and 27.3

Last nights win was the 19th for the son of American Ideal and took his earnings over the $460,000 mark.

Clinton is not as busy on racenight as some of the more prominent drivers but he has still chalked up 44 metropolitan wins this season and with a UDR of .3330 it is a wonder why he is not seen more in the bike on racenight.
