It took to Lot 125 of the 129 yearlings offered at Sundays harness racing sale at the Bathurst Show grounds to find the highest priced lot and it went to a striking filly by Aces N Sevens from the very successful New Zealand bred Holmes Hanover broodmare in Scent who made $36,000. Scent was a very smart racemare on the track herself taking a mark of 1:57.9 and earning $122,082 and has already produced nine winners from her first eleven foals including such standout types as Makes Every Scents 1:55.1 ($211,025) and Governor Art 1:58.6 ($189,250) so Lot 125 will have a lot of residual value once her career on the track is over. The second highest price for a yearling on the day was Lot 43 who made $26,000. She is a daughter of the elite sire Art Major from a Aces N Sevens half sister to six winners including the former star Queensland pacer in Rollon Bigred 1:55.3 ($343,903) and a full sister to two winners including Twograndahand 1:58.6 ($89,784). The third highest price of the Bathurst Yearling Sale was also a filly. This one was by Four Starzzz Shark from a Safely Kept daughter of the talented racemare Blue Sage 1:59.2 ($71,057) Not only has she left seven winners at stud to date including such smart types as Antigua Bay 1:56.7 ($161,159) and Marbles 1:58.5 $140,314) but Blue Sage is also a full sister to the outstanding age group performer in Blue Eagle 1:58 .5 ($157,229) and a half sister to another star in Khans Thunder 1:59 ($257,404) The top five priced yearlings were rounded out by colts from Courage Under Fire and the first season sire Auckland Reactor, both  of which sold for $21,000 . The Courage Under Fire colt is the first foal from the very smart Northern Luck mare in Edna Anne 1:55.4 ($105,811). Edna Anne is a half sister to the talented The Dies Cast 1:57 ($228,250) while her dam Anne Of Avonlea ($50,904) was a handy race mare herself. The surprise packet of the sale was the performance of the first season sire in Auckland Reactor. His top priced lot was Lot 76 and it was a beautifully bred individual. A colt son of Auckland Reactor, Lot 76 was a half brother to three winners including Lord Lombo 1:56 ($216,513) The second dam Decethree left eleven winners with seven in 2:00 including the outstanding Lombo Skyrider 1:50 ($841,611) and Lombo Cloud Nine 1:55.3 ($102,370) The third dam was the brilliant race filly Misty Maiden 1:59.4 ($245,449) who left nine winners at stud including the champion pacer Lombo Pocket Watch 1:53.6 ($1,552,638). A great pedigree for a smart looking colt. The other two Auckland Reactors made $16,500 and $11,500 which must have put a big smile on the Alabar Management team. To average $16,333 at the Bathurst Gold Crown Sale is a great achievement and has the son of Mach Three away to a great start.   Lot Sex Brand Foaling Date Colour Sire Dam Purchaser  Price  1 FILLY

Tomorrows Bathurst Gold Crown Yearling Sale at the Bathurst Showgrounds is quite different to most of the other sales held throughout Australia each season. Most of the other sales have a heavy emphasis on the top end of the market where $50,000 yearlings become quite common. The best of the best breeding wise change hands but there is no guarantee they will be the best on the racetrack. The average trainer - driver and owner are shut out in the main at these sales and it is left to companies like Graeme Board to fill the gap in the market by running sales such as the Bathurst Gold Crown. This weekends catalogue is a great example of having yearlings to fit everyone's budget with all the elite sires represented along with stallions just getting established or having their first crop being sold this year. Courage Under Fire is enjoying a great run on both sides of the Tasman at the moment and he has six entries in tomorrows sale. The pick of them for us is Lot 82 which is being offered on behalf of Tony Dumesny. He is a colt from the former top racemare Edna Anne 1:55.4 ($105,811) and is her first foal. The second dam takes most of the pedigree page so he is very hard to fault on paper. Four Starzzz Shark is always great value for money at the yearling sales and tomorrow at Bathurst should be no exception. He has seven representatives in the sale and we think all seven have something to offer the buyers bench. All of them have plenty of well performed relatives close up on the pedigree page and anyone who has seen Lennytheshark or Frith dominate this season on the track is aware of the quality that Four Starzzz Shark can produce. Modern Art is another stallion who under sells at a lot of sales in Australia and it is a mystery to us why that is. He is closing in on 400 winners in Australia alone and stake earnings in excess of $14,440,000, yet he doesn't quite get the sale results his record would suggest he deserves. He has four yearlings in tomorrows sale and all have a touch of quality about them. Lot 51 appeals to us a lot as the colt for sale is the first foal from a full sister to the very smart Bo Jasper 1:57.9 ($168,436)  Aces N Sevens continues to churn out the winners to the point he now has over 305 on his card with stakes closing in on $13,500,000. He has twelve yearlings in tomorrows sale and they cover a wide cross section of mares but there should be something for everyone pockets amongst the twelve on offer. People tend to forget that Aces N Sevens has produced such stars as Excel Stride 1:50.3 ($769,464), Drumfire 1:49 ($628,739), Ananz 1:53.8 ($527,844) and Lettucerocku 1:52.6 ($489,004) to name just a few and there are bound to be some smart horses amongst a draft of twelve yearlings from such a proven sire With Rock N Roll Heaven having a handful of entries alongside Art Major (3), Roll With Joe (4) and Sportswriter(4), the elite sires are well represented but just maybe the value may come from the sires we have highlighted in this article.

Tasmanian harness racing trainer Marc Butler has his sights set on winning the Allen Williams Memorial final at Devonport this Sunday night after his four-year-old Notonasunday scored an effortless all-the-way win in a heat of the series at UBET Park Hobart last night. Notonasunday showed good gate speed to lead from barrier three and once In front driver Mark Yole rated the gelded son of Aces N Sevens superbly to score by almost five metres from Baldock with Karalta Delux almost two metres away third. "I bought this horse about six months ago as an entire and for not a lot of money but after a couple of starts I realised he was pinching himself so I had him gelded and he has been different horse ever since," Butler said. "If he can draw near the inside of the front row in Sunday's final at Devonport he can win." The Allen Williams memorial series is restricted to maidens and horses that have not won a race that carried more than $3000 in stakes. The remaining heat winners were Barooga Jezza, Coccinella, Gods Sake, Ductape and Pageantry. Barooga Jezza won his heat in Launceston last Sunday night producing a mile rate of 2.02.7 with Maybe Charlie likely to make the final in Launceston next Sunday night as one of the four fastest seconds. Ductape from the Ben Rossendell stable is likely to start favourite in the final on the strength of his impressive heat win in Hobart two weeks ago in which Maravilloso ran second and will more than likely earn a final berth. The Ben Yole-trained Coccinella also produced a good mile rate of 2.02.2 in winning his heat in Hobart with second-placed Guestamate another likely finalist based on times. Gods Sake qualified for the final when he won his heat at Burnie where he clocked a mile rate of 2.05.1 and comfortably defeated Art of my Art. The Grant Hodges-trained Pageantry cruised into the final with a commanding win in his heat in Devonport but clocked a modest mile rate of 2.06.3. The four fastest second placegetters from the six heats also will tackle the final with the field to be released on Wednesday. Peter Staples

LEBANON, OH. - Indian Spirit proved his win in last week's James K. Hackett elimination was no fluke by capturing the $30,000 championship on Saturday night at Miami Valley Raceway in near identical fashion. Eased off the gate by driver Kyle Ater and settled into sixth at the quarter-mile station, Indian Spirit was content to move up a spot along the inside during the middle half before swinging wide at the head of the stretch and cruising to a convincing 2-3/4 length triumph in 1:54. Chief Talkalot (Jim Pantaleano) raced gamely on the outside the entire mile to finish second with Gray Camo (Chris Page) garnering the show dough. Indian Spirit by Tyler's Big Mark is owned by Gregory Forcum and trained by Dan Ater. His next start will be in the first leg of the Ohio Sires Stakes series for sophomore pacing colts at Miami Valley on May 2. Earlier on the program, Ardyne Ace (Dan Noble) pulled an upset over heavily-favored Night Pro (Ronnie Wrenn Jr.) in the $18,150 Open Pace. The winning nine-year-old's clocking of 1:50.3 was the third fastest mile in the two-year history of Miami Valley. Jim Pollock Jr. conditions Ardyne Ace for owners David Ehrenberg and Daniel Fawcett, who saw the son of Aces N Sevens lifetime bounty exceed $400,000 with the victory at odds of 10-1. Night Pro, who was assigned outside and was parked through a first quarter in :26.4, held for second with longshot Mr Why (Ken Holliday) saving ground throughout to finish third. Gregg Keidel    

As a three-year-old Johnnyace was competitive against the likes of harness racing star Beautide, but like others, his form waned and he never reached the heights his owners might have expected. But Johnnyace has continued to be a good money spinner for his owners, and in particular, his trainer Andrew Rawlings. The now seven-year-old still has what it takes to win features and he showed that at Spreyton on the synthetic surface by storming home to win the Sheffield Cup. It was his 12th win and it also gave Rawlings and driver James Austin a double for the meeting. While Rawlings was quietly confident the son of Aces N Sevens would perform well, punters were not of the same opinion, sending him around a $37 despised outsider. Rawlings said injuries and illnesses had prevented Johnnyace from realising his full potential. “After his three-year-old season he went through a fence at home and almost cut off his leg,” Rawlings said. “Since then he’s never quite shown what he did as a three-year-old when he ran seconds and thirds behind Beautide, but he’s still been a nice horse.” Rawlings also had his recent New Norfolk Cup winner Musselroe Bay engaged in the Sheffield Cup and he was one of the top fancies for the race. “Musselroe Bay just couldn’t get a clear run at them in the straight and went to the line hard held,” Rawlings said. The $3.30 favourite Whisper Jet lost her chance when she was slow to begin from a 20-metre handicap, but she ran on well to finish fourth. PETER STAPLES

Paul & Sharon Carmody’s Lochend Stud at Maitland in NSW thought this season was going to be disaster when they found their champion stallion Aces N Sevens dead in his yard a little over a month ago. Little did they know then that this season could well turn into one of the best ever now that they have secured an exciting son of Artsplace – Shoobee’s Place 1.49.1 $787,271, to stand at their pristine Lochend Stud. Paul has always dreamed of being able to offer a quality Artsplace son to breeders in Australia, but could never find the right one. Well now it looks like he may have the perfect offering. In fact Shoobee’s Place is as close to an ideal offering for Australian mares as you could get. Bred on the ultra successful Artsplace – Jate Lobell cross, similar to stallion of the moment, Sportswriter, the ultra impressive Mr Feelgood & Mister Big and also Yankee Cruiser (sire of possibly one of the greatest aged horses we have ever seen in Sweet Lou 1.47 on a 5/8 track). Another stand out in his pedigree is his third dam – the great Blue Horizon, the dam of Panorama. She is also the dam of Smile Upon the dam of Grinfromeartoear, who certainly needs no introduction to Australian breeders, and is also the sire of Mr Feelgood & Mister Big. This fact alone makes him the ultimate choice in particular for Panorama mares and mares by Grinfromeartoear, allowing you to double on this highly productive line. Shoobee’s Place has an impressive & enduring race record, racing and winning every season from two thru to seven. He took a race record of 1.52 as a 2yo with his career best 1.49.1 at 4yo. He was placed 2nd in the Bluegrass stakes as 2YO. He bounced back as a 3YO with a win in the heat & final of the New Jersey Sires stakes. In his career he won the Consolation of the Battle of Brandywine, elimination & final of the Bergstein Pace, consolation of the Levy Memorial. In all he won in under 1.52 on no less than 15 occasions. Shoobee’s Place is an outstanding individual, standing 15.3hh with correct conformation, great looks and a superb temperament. He also had the reputation of a talented and tough raceway performer right throughout his career. Shoobee’s Place is being offered at an introductory fee of $2200 incl GST, with very generous discounts available for multiple mares and Members of Harness Breeders NSW.  For more information or to book your mare in phone Paul Carmody on 0439 607 349 or 02 49 33 6903.

The proprietor of the Lochend harness racing stud at Maitland in New South Wales Paul Carmody is in shock today at the sudden demise of his flagship stallion Aces N Sevens 1:48.8 ($888,934). The 17 year old stallion was found dead today by Paul Carmody when being checked early this morning. The son of Cams Card Shark had established himself as one of the better stallions in Australia and his loss will be keenly felt at Lochend Stud. "Aces N Sevens had never been in better order in his time at the stud and that made his sudden death all the harder to take” said Mr Carmody when speaking to Harnesslink this afternoon. “It appears Aces N Sevens had had a massive heart attack during the night and had died where he had fallen” he said. Aces N Seven has stood at stud in Australia since the 2002/2003 breeding season. For the first five years at stud Aces N Sevens shuttled back to North America but has been based in Australia full time since 2008. His North American stock have done an outstanding job to date with 170 winners of $10,927,896 in stakes. Not only have 28 of those winners won over $100,000 but 38 having taken a sub 1:55 record as well. Aces N Sevens has compiled an even better record in Australia having sired 284 winners of $12,033,631 in stakes to date. His flag bearer in Australia has been the brilliant Excel Stride 1:50.3 ($769,464) while others such as Drumfire 1:49 ($546,945)  Ananz 1:53.8 ($527,844)  Lettucerocku 1:52.6 ($343,854) and Lady Lexus 1:52.3 ($316,518) have all played their part in Aces N Sevens success. Aces N Seven has won the coveted New South Wales Stallion Of The Year award on no less than four occasions to date. While heading into the latter part of his stud career, Aces N Seven had served 59 and 66 mares in the last two seasons and early interest suggested a similar number this season. Aces N Sevens has had  21 $100,000 earners and 16 in 1:55 in Australia which are great numbers down under. Everyone knows how difficult it is for stallions to become established as a sire and to lose one like Aces N Sevens when he still had so much to offer must make his sudden death so much harder for Paul Carmody to deal with at the moment.

The commanding end-to-end win of Allnight Kiss in the $15,000 final of the Sale Graduate Race for two-year-old harness racing fillies at Bathurst on Wednesday night has given the forthcoming Bathurst Gold Crown Yearling Sale a tremendous boost.

Great Western trainer Peter Manning’s Art Major/Anannz filly Znana was successful in the Wimmera Mail-Times 3-Y-0 Pace over 1700 metres at the Horsham trots meeting held on Monday November 25. Bred and raced by Adelaide’s Cormack family, Znana (Ananz spelt backwards) was given a charmed passage by Matt Craven from gate two trailing her pole line stablemate Adam Cartwright raced in the same interests and when eased off his back on turning, finished full of running to score by 3.1 metres in a new track record mile rate of 1-55.3. Racer finished a further 30.2 metres away in third place after racing in the open. Ananz (Aces N Sevens) died while foaling to Somebeachsomwhere recently with the foal not surviving. On a day of multiple wins, Peter Manning landed a double when seven year old Presidential Ball/Colada Hanover gelding The Avoca Flyer, a half brother to the great Blacks A Fake snared The Horse Shed Shop Melton Pace for C1 class over 1700 metres, recording his first victory in almost 12 months. Driven by Matt Craven, The Avoca Flyer began with a wing on every foot from outside the front line to lead all of the way, defeating the heavily supported Suerte (three back the markers – outside the winner home turn) and Big Gorilla (one/one) in a mile rate of 1-56.3. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Four year old Union Guy/Echelon Express mare Sorority Sister broke her maiden status at start number eighteen by taking the Moore Bulk Haulage Pace for C0 class over 1700 metres in a mile rate of 1-59.2. Raced and trained by Marnie Bibby from nearby Navarre and driven by Daryl Douglas, Sorority Sister led throughout from gate three, accounting for the favourite Gee Mae which trailed, making no impression over the concluding stages, with Pandoras Jet third after facing the breeze. Daryl Douglas was to chalk up a successive double after piloting Ararat hobby trainer Gary Hull’s five year old mare Frameworks Pride to victory in the Become A Sponsor Trotters Handicap for T0 or better class over 2200 metres. Beginning speedily from the 10 metre mark, Frameworks Pride a daughter of Framework and Yawithme was sent forward to take over from Family Decision within a lap, before cruising to the wire 4.1 metres in advance of Champ Devine which raced outside her in a mile rate of 2-06.1. Looks A Moral showed a return to form in finishing third from three back in the moving line. Making three for Douglas and two for Bibby was very much in-form four year old Attorney General/Bludegirl gelding Blude Master in the Finn-Tack @ Horze Aust. Pace for C1 class over 1700 metres. Restrained from inside the second row, Blude Master settled three back in the moving line, with the pole marker Thewaytolive retaining the front running. Sent forward to park outside the pacemaker for the final circuit, Blude Master led on turning and held a margin to the wire to score by 5.4 metres over Mightbeme from last and Venus Williams (one/three – three wide last lap) in a rate of 2-00.1. Michelle Manning’s highly promising Four Starzzz Shark/Talilia four year old gelding Jackabeams recorded his 3rd victory in 5 outings, when successful in the H&DHRC Membership Pace for C1 class over 1700 metres with sister Kerryn in the sulky. Coming off a disappointing 4th to Chilli Palmer at Melton nine days earlier after leading, Jackabeams an unbackable $1.10 favourite again led from gate two and was never headed in defeating father Peter’s Additallup which raced outside him, with Miss Dilly (three wide last lap from mid-field) third. The mile rate 1-57. Mildura (Merbein) trainer Brian McGinty made the journey south with Kiwi bred four year old Bettors Delight/Invisage mare Our Mischievious Miss a happy one, as she saluted the judge in the Horsham Salutes G.A. Lang Pace for C2 & C3 class over 2200 metres. Taking a concession, Our Mischievious Miss led from gate two and after looking to be in trouble on turning, just lasted to nose out Bubble Art (one/two – four wide home turn) in a rate of 2-00.2, with Peace Of Art (one/one – three wide home turn) a head away in third place in the most thrilling finish of the afternoon. Ararat trainer/driver Michael Bellman does a great job with his select team and landed the Wimmera Roadways Pace for C0 class over 2200 metres with Witzend, a four year old gelded son of Dawn Ofa New Day and Fake Trick, leading throughout from gate two in defeating Rinashi which trailed and Saab Magic which faced the breeze in a rate of 2-0 By Len Baker

Saturday's $5.6 million Breeders Crown spectacular will feature an array of familiar faces, both equine and human. After 29 years of Crown races, many will have been here before, but some like 52-year-old Bob Baggitt, Jr., trainer of Don Dorado, is making his Crown debut in the $500,000 2-Year-Old-Colt Trot. This will also be the first-time Crown for owner Mitchell Walker, a farmer and nursery owner from Michigan. "I'm originally from Michigan," said longtime New Jersey transplant Baggitt, who now lives in Bangor, Pennsylvania. "My brother-in-law Terry Tomlin (a Michigan Hall of Famer), broke him and trained him down for Mr. Walker, who bred and raised him. His mare, Quintessential K, had been a good two-year-old, but got hurt at three. It's a good family though. His second dam is Perfect Patty and she was a very good horse for Terry and Mr. Walker."  Perfect Patty earned $281,407 for Walker while her foals have earned more than $1.1 million. Baggitt has only had the Donato Hanover gelding in his barn for a short while, but he did get the chance to check him out prior to taking over training duties. "I got him about three months ago," he said. "But I'd seen him before when I would visit back in Michigan. He was a nice-looking horse, maybe a little small and a little bit of a handful, but a nice horse otherwise." Don Dorado is the only gelding in the race, but Baggitt said that was more with an eye toward longevity than temperament. "That's usually Terry's call. We are looking more to keeping him and having him race for a few years, so it really didn't matter whether he was a gelding or not. That's also why we skipped some of the other, bigger races and why we didn't go to Kentucky. We want to race him for awhile yet." While his racing career may well last as long as his connections would like, Don Dorado has already put up some pretty good numbers in just his freshman season, winning four of six starts and banking $224,640. The largest portion of that bankroll came in the $260,000 Pennsylvania Sire Stakes Championship at Harrah's Chester, where he won easily on the front end in 1:56.2. He also added a second place finish to that tally and has one break showing on his card. But, according to Baggitt, that was uncharacteristic of the trotter, who races in trotting hobbles. Baggitt, whose richest races to date have been with pacer Aces N Sevens who was fourth to Gallo Blue Chip in the 2000 Meadowlands Pace and later won the Hoosier Cup that same year, said that he has not made it a point to watch Crown favorite Father Patrick's season this year and had not yet seen that one's 1:52.1 win over pacesetter Nuncio in the Crown elim on October 11. Don Dorado's connections opted to take a bye in that race and head directly to the $500,000 Crown final. "Well, I don't know if I'm superstitious," he said. "But I like to just focus on my horse. That looks like it was a pretty good race. But I am happy with the bye and happy that we drew post six instead of farther out." Father Patrick, who as the elim winner could have drawn as far out as post five, instead drew post two while Nuncio is outside of both Father Patrick and Don Dorado in post eight. "It looks like it should be interesting," said Baggitt. "There could be a few who want the front end and who leave out of there for position." Although it may be Walker and Baggitt's Crown debut, there is one member of the team who is a seasoned pro when it comes to helping "Crown" champions - driver Tim Tetrick.  Tetrick has been the gelding's regular driver, was in the bike for Don Dorado's Sire Stakes Championship win and also drove him to a six-and-a-half length win in a qualifier on October 10. Getting a commitment from Tetrick for a Crown drive is a distinct advantage. Tetrick is the only driver to win four Breeders Crowns in a single night, achieving that benchmark last year in the events at Woodbine in Canada. He’s rapidly climbing the all-time earnings list, and is now eighth with $4.6 million despite making his first Crown start just five years ago.  "Timmy was very happy with him after that and said he was ready to go," said Baggitt."Everyone is coming in to watch him and we are all excited about the race." by Gen Sullivan for the Breeders Crown  

A neat and compact meeting was held at Tabcorp Park Melton on Friday September 27, featuring the $20,000 Claiming Masters Final and the $16,000 Pace for M2 to M4 class. Smiles of joy turned to disappointment following the victory of six-year-old Aces N Sevens/Alesco gelding Cut For An Ace in the University Foods Claiming Masters Final over 2240 metres. Trained at Bacchus Marsh by Alan Tubbs, Cut For An Ace driven by daughter Amy was sent forward from gate five to stroll past Thats Mister Ali inside him shortly after the start and proceeded to run his rivals ragged. Kicking away on straightening, Cut For An Ace (claiming price $25,000) scored by an untouched 12.7 metres in a brilliant mile rate of 1-55.7 over Smudge Bromac from near last and Kotare Roland (one/one) which trailed the heavily supported favourite Catch Your Breath. Cut For An Ace who in winning chalked up his 13th victory in 62 outings, was claimed in the race and will do his future racing in the care of Geoff Webster at Bannockburn in the Geelong area. Hamilton part-owner/trainer David Lewis’ quality six-year-old Bettors Delight/Frosty Mattina gelding Abettorpunt resumed from a short break with a brilliant near last to first performance to take out the fast class event over 2240 metres. Driven by Matt Craven, Abettorpunt starting from the extreme draw settled at the tail of the field, with the roughie Pinevale Willpower leading from gate four. Although wide in the final circuit, Abettorpunt raced away on straightening to record a 7-metre victory in advance of Saint Flash and Victors Delight in a mile rate of 1-57.9. It was Abettorpunt’s 19th victory in 45 outings. Bolinda co-trainers Kari and Paul Males brought up another Melton victory with nine-year-old Sundon/Tender Annie gelding Tender Don listed in the racebook as being trained by Kari, taking out the $16,000 Glenferrie Farm Trotters Mobile for TM1 to TM3 class over 2240 metres in a mile rate of 2-00.8.. Driven by Greg Sugars, Tender Don (gate five) had little difficulty in crossing Jingling Silver (gate two) shortly after the start, before coasting to the wire 10.4 metres in advance of a game Prettylilangeseyes (one/one – outside winner home turn) after galloping in the score up. Armed Guard finished third. Avenel horseman David Aiken has been having a great run in recent weeks (especially around the provincials) and landed the Aldebaran Park Trotters Mobile for TMO class over 1720 metres at Melton with Kiwi bred mare Brylin Crescent in a slick rate of 1-59.5. Driven by David, Brylin Crescent a seven-year-old daughter of Brylin Boy and Another Starlet led virtually throughout from gate two, easily accounting for Goldstar Invasion (one/one) which raced outside her for the last lap. Just Call Me Earl came from last to finish an eye catching third. Next Friday’s Melton program will feature the $50,000 (Group 2) City Of Melton Plate for four and five-year-olds over 2240 metres and promises to be one of the highlights of the season. Len Baker

Night racing in the middle of winter is for the hardiest of souls, and last Wednesday’s Bathurst meeting tested the toughest, with the temperature hovering around the four degrees mark throughout, before dropping to zero as floats were loaded for home. It didn’t bother Nathan Hurst, however. Back in action on his home track after serving a suspension incurred at the end of a working holiday in sunny Queensland, Hurst celebrated with a driving double, to share the honours with Amanda Turnbull. We Own The Night provided the first leg of his double in race two, leading throughout in a 3CO-3C1 sprint event to score decisively from William Peter and Signum Vitae, which sat behind him. The overall rate was a tidy 2:00.8, with a last half in a minute. The Aces N Sevens gelding is owned and trained by Hurst’s girlfriend Angela Hedges, who helped keep his stable ticking over during his absence in Queensland. She’s currently on holidays, and he’s now returned the favour. Express Jet completed the double for Hurst in race five, a 2130 metres R2-R3 class. Drawn inside the second line, the Jet Laag four-year-old mare was driven quietly and finished strongly to score the narrowest of wins from leader Rebel Shannonn and trailer Son Of Lopez. The mile rate was 2:02.5, and the last half was 59.9. Like their trainer, owners Ray and Margaret Mawhood have recently spent some time away from the track- in their case, through illness – so the win was the best possible welcome back present. Being from Oberon, the weather did not present any problems for them! Amanda Turnbull began the meeting on 180 winners for the season, and her driving double keeps that “double ton” goal very much in sight with five weeks of the season remaining. Steve Turnbull’s season has been equally outstanding. His training tally stood at 182 to begin the meeting, so the prospect of both father and daughter achieving a remarkable milestone is highly likely. The race to get there first is played down by both, but is full of interest for the rest of us. Pevensey (for Josh Turnbull) led throughout in a 2130 metres CO class, to record her second win from four starts this season. Destiny Hope and Outlaw filled the minor places, and a slow lead time and even sectionals led to a modest mile rate of 2:04.2 . Ausswin sat outside the lead in race seven, for R0-R1 class, and proved too tough for Happy Camper, which had enjoyed a one-one trip, and Captain Barbossa, which made a wide run over the final lap. They were a very tired bunch at race end, with a final quarter of just 32.4 contributing to the overall mile rate of 2:04.8 Steve Turnbull being the trainer of Ausswin, the scoreboard then read this way: daughter 182 , dad 183 . The “Great Race” continues! Another double act from the Siejka sisters, with Amie (Bateup) successful in the C1 class opening race aboard Miners Lane, for trainer Bob Schweickle, and Ashlee scoring with Red Vee Hanover in the C2-C3 class two races later. They were contrasting wins. Miners Late led all the way, zipping up the back in a sharp 27.9 for an overall rate of 1:59.8, and defying his $36 quote. Red Vee Hanover started odds on, got a nice trail into the business end of the race, and just outstayed stablemate Stirling William which closed late. Graham Betts and Mark Hewitt have impressed all season, and again turned in excellent winning drives at this meeting. Betts, drawn the inside with favourite Abercrombie Alice (for trainer Leon Bennetts) in a 3YO Fillies sprint event, kept back a little from the early speed battle and then kicked through on the first corner to post his main rival and second favourite Crazzy Falcon in the death seat. He dictated the race from the lead, getting home in 60 seconds for a narrow win from the trailing Long Cool Woman. Hewitt’s runner in the 2YO Fillies final event, Pullabookaprincess, had to contend with the outside gate, and his move to take up the death seat might have seemed obvious enough, but it nevertheless confined Our Lissome behind race leader Rachelle Shannon during a slowly run affair, and enabled him to open up a break on the corner which he maintained to the line. Pullabookaprincess, by first-season sire Stonebridge Regal, is a very genuine trier, as her season’s record of 18 starts for 2 wins and 8 placings indicates. On these cold Bathurst nights, it’s mostly only regulars who attend. One unfamiliar face at this meeting belonged to an older man who identified himself as a traveller making his way from Sydney to Perth, in slow stages, sleeping in his swag along the way. He appeared to be enjoying himself, which is good because he might be thawed out just in time for the next meeting! Bathurst Harness Racing Club
