Leading New South Wales harness racing trainer Shane Tritton enjoyed a perfect trip to Newcastle last night.

Contesting four of the six races on the program, Tritton left the venue with a quartet, with each driven by his partner, Lauren Panella.

Thrilled with the result, Tritton stated he was extremely confident of registering at least one victory.

“I had faith in all of them, but I was willing to put the house on winning the first,” Tritton joked.

Tritton’s playful remark stems from the fact each runner in the field is a member of his every-growing stable.

Despite some viewing the event as a glorified training exercise, Glenlochar blitzed his stablemates as a prohibitive $1.10 favourite.

Never seriously challenged, the son of Elsu cruised to a 44-metre win from Mister Hairy Maclary, with Mickey Mcrooney eight-and-a-half metres away third.

Glenlochar covered the mile in 1:53.8.

“He is a pretty nice horse,” Tritton said. “Obviously he didn’t have to run the time he did, but I still wanted him to have a decent hit out.”

Tritton and Panella then annexed the next three races with Ohoka Royal, Nota Lada and Jackaroo Bromac.
