Tasmania boasts a wealth of talented young harness racing drivers with many coming from families with a strong background in the sport.

Dylan Ford is one who falls into that category and he had a night to remember at Tattersall’s Park in Hobart on Sunday night.

Ford snared with four winners on the nine-race program and three of those were results of gun drives.

His first came courtesy of the Michael Laugher-trained The Pix that powered home to score by a metre in the Tattsbet 2YO Pace over 1609 metres.

The last three races belonged to Ford, winning aboard Aim Aloof for Zeke Slater to give that trainer a double, Delightful Lilly for his cousin Nathan Ford and he capped his best night by guiding Belliciouslips to victory in the Cardmaster Hanover 2YO Pace over 2090 metres.

It was a brilliant display by Ford who is the son of Phillip Ford and a nephew of ace reinsman Scott Ford who are both unfortunately sidelined through disqualification.

Dylan has always shown above average ability in the sulky and given his strike rate he will outdrive his claim in no time.
