It was a perfect score of eight from eight for horses trained in Victoria's Western District at the Terang harness racing fixture held on Wednesday September 1, 2010. Ararat's Terry Young started proceeding with ex-pacer Aristos Way taking the Merv Ruby Harness Supplies Trotters Handicap for T0 or better class over 2180 metres.

A 4-Y-0 gelded son of Peace Of Art and Ameloriate driven once again by Peter Manning, Aristos Way led for the majority of the journey from barrier five in defeating Trent Deville and the 40 metre backmarker Glorys Adam in a rate of 2-07.1.

Terang part-owner/trainer Darren Cole was successful with 7-Y-0 Live Or Die/The Devil Inside gelding Devilsliveinside in the Terang Ideal Dairy Pace for C1 class over 2180 metres in 2-04.4.

Taking a concession for local Nicholas Lenehan, Devilsliveinside led throughout from the pole to score from Sakwi (four wide on the home turn off a three wide trail in the last lap), with Monfries (one/two) third.

Hamilton duo David and Caleb Lewis landed the VHRT&DA Pace for C4 to C6 class over 2180 metres with 7-Y-0 Armbro Operative/Brilliant Disguise gelding Man In Disguise which chalked up his 8th success in 34 outings.

Restrained from outside the front row to settled five back along the markers, Caleb Lewis eased Man In Disguise away from the inside to trail Effective Torque one/one in the last lap.

Moving wide on turning, Man In Disguise finished full of running to blowse Effective Torque in the closing stages, with Macterra Boy using the sprint lane off the leader and favourite Bottled In Scotland for third. The mile rate 2-03.1.

Heywood's Kevin Brough is no stranger to Terang and snared the first leg of the quaddie - the Emerson's Printing & Publishing Pace for C0 class over 2180 metres with $62.00 chance Jimmy Flaherty, putting an early end to most quaddie takers.

Driven by Neil McCallum, Jimmy Flaherty a 4-Y-0 Safe And Sound/Kate Flaherty gelding was trapped wide from gate five, before being sent forward to park outside the pacemaker Mister Rufus which also worked to cross the early leader Keeper Of The Fire.

Gaining cover at the expense of more fancied stablemate Flynno racing for the bell, Jimmy Flaherty was given a breather for the final circuit.

Easing three wide on the final bend, Jimmy Flaherty ran home stylishly to gain the day in advance of Keeper Of The Fire along the sprint lane and Mister Rufus in a rate of 2-04.1.

It was Jimmy's first success in 10 outings.

Terang husband and wife John and Jesse Clarke landed the Dick & Anne Box Pace for C1 class over 2180 metres with Red River Hanover/Donna Soky 5-Y-0 gelding Djibouti in a rate of 2-02.

In what was a super performance, Djibouti driven by John settled near last from gate three, moving three wide entering the straight on the first occasion in an effort to park outside the leader Miss Athens.

Unable to do so with Athleticism outside the leader Miss Athens, Djibouti was restrained with no option but to go all the way back to last.

Taken very wide on straightening, Djibouti unleashed a great burst of speed to swamp his rivals in defeating Miss Athens, with the favourite Tere T (three wide trail last lap) third.

Great Western trainer Jamie Stewart does a fine job with his select team and was rewarded when 5-Y-0 Rustler Hanover/Hippie Chick mare Chick Rustler scored in the Terang CRT Store Pace for C1 class over 2180 metres after drawing gate six.

Driven by Melton based Greg Sugars fresh from a short break in Hawaii, Chick Rustler ran home off a three wide trail in the final circuit from mid-field at the bell to greet the judge over Indo Falcon which led at the bell and Potenza (one/one) in a rate of 2-03.3.

Peter Manning claimed the final two events, with 5-Y-0 gelding Jilliby Bartel (Artiscape/Diplomatic Lover) taking the Madden's Commercial Hotel Camperdown Pace for C2 & C3 class over 1680 metres in 1-56.9 and Primanproper Lombo (Mach Three/My Bagatelle Lombo) the Willshers Showcase Jewellers Camperdown Pace for C0 class mares over 2180 metres in 2-03.6.

Jilliby Bartel (Glen Craven) which is on the market, raced in the open from gate five, proving too strong at the business end of proceedings for Hellofaparty (three wide last lap) and Delwyns Daughter (three back the markers), while Primanproper Lombo backing up from Ballarat the night before, also raced in the open from gate four in defeating Dressedforsuccess from last and Janellesdaughter (one/one) in 2-03.6.

Kerryn Manning was the winning reinsperson.
