Locally owned and trained nine-year-old harness racing pacer Ned Pepper has continued to produce unbelievable form by taking out his third regional Country Cup by winning at Peak Hill, New South Wales on Sunday afternoon.  Owned by Terry Jenner and trained by wife Katie Jenner, Ned Pepper made it three wins in Country cup class by defeating a strong field that included placegetters Tuapeka Glory and Hidden Courage in a mile rating of 1:58.7.  Ned Pepper got away nicely from gate three and settled behind early leaders Dazzle Me and Royal Story. He moved outside Royal Story at the top of the bend and showed superior speed down the home straight to clinch victory over the 2250m journey. Angela Hedges was again in the gig as she was for Ned Pepper's win in the Dubbo Stayers Pacers Cup on May 24. Ned Pepper and connections after the win at Dubbo last month.   He'd previously taken out the Leeton Pacers Cup and the more recent Dubbo Stayers Pacers Cup to take his career winnings to more than $131,000. His record now includes 18 wins and 28 minors, a great effort for the veteran pacer.  With a best winning mile rate of 1:55.5 to his credit, and a winners cheque of $7,200 from his win at Peak Hill, many around the district are hoping the wins keep coming for the likeable couple who have invested many hours of hard work in their small but successful team. Young harness racing trainers Todd Day, Troy Fletcher and Mark Cullen entered pacers in Menangle Series heats raced at Goulburn on Monday afternoon. Fletcher's-trained seven-year-old mare Mah Koo Loo Queen was looking to capitalise on good recent form including a win at West Wyalong and three second placed finishes at Bathurst, Canberra and Wagga.

Angela Hedges helped to produce the biggest upset of Sunday’s Forbes Harness Racing Club meeting when she steered Roseculledglasses the first win of her career. In the gig for trainer Adam Bellach, the Bathurst driver rated $10.90 chance Roseculledglasses nicely to make it an all the way win in the Kevin and Kay Seymour Celebrating 50 Years in Harness Racing Three Year Old Pace (2,060 metres). Prior to Hedges’ winning drive on Sunday, the closest the Artistic Fella x She Bites filly had come to success was when running a 16.7m third at the same track on April 25. Hedges used Roseculledglasses’ gate speed to see her cross from barrier three and once in front, there she stayed. While favourite Our Chateau Lafite ($1.40, Amanda Turnbull) mounted a challenge down the home straight, Roseculledglasses was a comfortable 5.3m winner in what was her fifth career start. She clocked splits of 29.8, 29.9, 29.5 and 29.8 seconds. Anya Whitelaw
