Singleton's Aaron Goadsby says The Bus will now target the NSW Breeders Challenge series and Brisbane harness racing winter carnival after claiming the opening race of Saturday night's Miracle Mile meeting at Menangle

The four-year-old horse won the $25,000 listed Lady Drivers Invitational (1609 metres) in a career-best, mile-rate of one minute and 51 seconds. 

Goadsby, who prepares runners for New Zealand-based trainer Mark Jones, was again impressed with the Golden Guitar runner-up.

"He has been going good and that was a good result," he said.

Since arriving in Australia around four months ago The Bus has started nine times - six wins, two seconds and a third.

The group 1 Miracle Mile was won by four-year-old gelding Spankem.
