Harness racing trainer Ben Yole dominated the meeting at UBET Park Hobart last night by preparing a treble on the 10-event card.

It was one of his best nights at the office and it also was a boon for his younger brother Tim Yole who partnered all three winners - Satisfied Grin, Lu Way Lord and In House.
 
Yole will most likely target the country cups with former Victorian pacer Satisfied Grin following the gelding's impressive win in a C1 standing start race over 2090 metres.
 
Satisfied Grin stepped brilliantly from the standing start to lead and driver Tim Yole ensured a steady pace for the first lap.
 
After sneaking a modest third quarter the gelding kicked clear in the home straight and went on to score by 1-1/4 metres from Prettyboytroy that trailed the winner throughout.
 
"This horse was trained by Rita Burnett who contacted me to see if I'd be interested in taking the horse," Yole said.
 
"He is owned by Mick Tobin who is a top bloke so we took the horse on and he's done a really good job since he arrived just over a month ago."
 
"That's his second win and he's also clocked up a couple of placings so he's well and truly paying his way.
 
"If he keeps on improving there's no reason why we wouldn't look at the country cups over the Christmas-New Year period," he said.
 
Satisfied Grin has had six starts in Tasmania for two wins and as many minor placings for over $12,000 in stakes.
 
Lu Way Lord was sent out a $40 outsider in the Stallion Parade Pace over 2090m and after looking to be in a hopeless position turning for home Yole persevered with rails runs and the five-year-old hit the line with a head to spare over Thatswhatshesaid.
 
In House was the well-backed favourite and the four-year-old made it wins in successive races, scoring impressively from Bona Fide Hustler in a C1-C2 Pace over 2090 metres.
