The champion French racehorse and sire Quaker Jet was credited with his second Group winner in Australia when Im Hector outfinished his harness racing rivals in the SA Trotters Derby at Globe Derby Park on Saturday night (June 13).

It was Im Hector’s second success from only six starts. The gelding is one of the first crop of Quaker Jet which also includes the Breeders Crown champion Im Ready Jet, Dizzysjet, runner-up in the NSW Derby, and recent Melton winner Electrojet (Tr 1:59.3).

Orlando Vici, another member of the Haras Des Trotteurs sire roster, left very impressive winners on both sides of the Tasman.

Both bred by Haras Des Trotteurs’ principal Pat Driscoll and from Orlando Vici’s initial crop were Brandlo Prince, a runaway winner at Shepparton, and Xebec, who overcame a 35 metre handicap to score at Cambridge Raceway, New Zealand.

Driscoll bred no less than four winners for the week. The others were Celtic Cash (by Ready Cash), who scored his maiden success at Ballarat, and the three-year-old Avimore, who soundly trounced his rivals at Bendigo.

A second Haras Des Trotteurs winner at Bendigo was the two-year-old Maestro (by Love You), who led most of the way to record his first success.
