Top harness racing drivers Chris Alford and Greg Sugars again dominated at Warragul trots on Monday afternoon, winning six of the seven races staged between them.
 
Alford produced another four winner haul at the meeting, including the drive behind Amazing Daisy which won one of the feature events, the Rodney Demmler Memorial Pace, in a three-way photo finish that had many patrons guessing.
 
Alford also drove Sahara Sirocco (stablemate of Amazing Daisy), Freedom Writer and Shesa Tricky Bridge to victory.
 
Sugars meanwhile steered Forever And A Day to success in race five, and won the last race with Bao Nien, trained by his wife Jess.
 
Lisa Miles produced trotter Tam Oshanter to win the Gordon and June Turner Memorial Handicap event.

Despite small fields and icy conditions on Monday, a good day of racing was witnessed by spectators.
 
After a break of several weeks, the major trots meeting on the season takes place at Warragul on Easter Sunday afternoon, April 12 with the staging of the annual Warragul Cup events for pacers and trotters.
