Talented three-year-old pacer Semowillrev produced another brilliant performance in Launceston on Sunday night to easily keep his unbeaten harness racing record intact. It was the Craig Hayes-trained gelding's fourth win from as many starts and arguably his best. Krafty Boy set up a big lead early while Hayes had to extricate his charge from the pack in order to avoid interference soon after the start. But when clear and in the three-wide line Semowillrev scorched around the field and rushed past the leader as if he was treading water. Once in front the Sportswriter gelding was allowed to bowl along at his own leisure and when Hayes released the reins at the top of the straight he powered clear and went on to defeat Krafty Boy by almost 11 metres with Volkova Leis 14 metres away third. Semowillrev clocked a mile rate for the 1680-metre trip of 1.57 which was a personal best and the winning margin was just a shade below his average of 10.25 metres. "I'm very happy with how the horse has come back as a three-year-old," Hayes said. "I'll give him one more run then tip him out for a two or three-week let-up. "He has shown me enough to suggest he will be up to tackling the feature three-year-old races here in Tasmania this season." Peter Staples

Hobby harness racing owner Richard Hall celebrated his first winner with when his recent purchase Im Barney Rubble produced a powerful finish for a last-stride win in the Doug Martin Danbury Park Cup over 2698 metres at Launceston last night. Im Barney Rubble, trained and driven by Rohan Hadley, settled near last while The Majority set a solid pace in front with the well-tried Dapper Dana locked away on the rails and shuffled back to last turning for home. Dapper Dana galloped fiercely soon after the start and lost at least 60 metres but tacked onto the pack soon after. When Black Centurian gave up the one-out-one-back spot to make his move 500 metres from home, he found the lead in the home straight, shot clear and looked the likely winner. But Im Barney Rubble unleashed a powerful finishing burst and hit the line hard to score by a nose over Black Centurian with Dapper Dana a close-up third. While it was a great win by the Life Sign gelding the effort of Dapper Dana was enormous and he was clearly the run of the race outside of the winner. Hall purchased Im Barney Rubble through the claiming races process. "I was going to buy him one night when the asking price as only $6500 but I didn't fully understand how the claiming system worked," Hall said. "His price later went up to $10,000 but I still thought he was worth it." Peter Staples

With the Australian Drivers Championship in Hobart less than a week away it was a time to sit up and take notice of the quality of our homegrown harness racing stars on Sunday night. The nine-event Launceston Pacing Club meeting threw up three driving doubles. Last season's Leading Junior Driver Jack Laugher was first to draw blood for favourite punters, winning the early speed battle on the popular pick Stylish Trend before being able to conserve enough petrol to finish off with a last half of 58.1 seconds, staving off a determined late surge from Dellas Command, to gain the day by a half-head. Jack was again the punter's pal in the Luxbet Best Of The Best Stakes over 2200-metres, guiding the Ken Rattray trained Tuxedo Max ($3.40) to back-to-back victories. The former Queensland seven-year-old, having its 105th start, was fast away from gate one and held the top comfortably through the first corner. Gareth Rattray was quickly off the pegs with last start winner Jetcraft to sit outside the front-runner, and the battle of the master and the apprentice was on. Tuxedo Max travelled well to the turn and kicked clear of Jetcraft before holding a late surge from outsider Modern Chic. Hit The Lights, a five-year-old mare driven by John Walters, delivered a knock-out blow for punters scoring the third win of its career with a whirlwind finish to capture the 2017 Australian Drivers Championship C2 to C3 Heat Three at bolters odds of $36.60. Hit The Lights (pictured), owned by Eric Blomquist and Mark Geeves, has had 37 starts in its career, 34 of those in Hobart, one at St. Marys and just two in Launceston. Eric and Mark combined with Flashing Red to capture the $25,000 Devonport Cup in 2002, defeating Gorse Bush by a half metre. Little did anyone know at the time but the race would go down in history, setting Flashing Red on his journey to $2million in stake money earnings, while Gorse Bush would go on to become the dam of the incomparable dual- Interdominion champion Beautide. Walters later hitched his wagon to Tisu Toota in the last race, the Claimer, for an all the way win for trainer Clayton Miller. Tisu Toota ($5.30) showed his liking to the stand start conditions, pinging the tapes to notch up his 19th win from behind the strands from just 57 starts. Todd Rattray's dream of another tilt at the Interdominion with Devendra is on track after a sizzling display in the Free For All. The Vivian Clark owned Bettors Delight - Queen Carey eight-year-old gelding scorched to the early lead and had the opposition covered turning for home, clocking a final quarter of 27.4 seconds to return a mile-rate of 1:55:3 over the 1680-metre trip. Todd completed his double when four-year-old Zhukov Leis ($1.60), owned by Marjorie and Trevor Leis, cruised home after leading from start to finish. Zhukov Leis had a 3.6-metre margin on the line from the fast-finishing Buster William to bring up its second victory at start five. Adrian Collins pulled off a Gavin Lang type performance coming from back last on the Dick Eaves prepared Courageous Katee ($2.70) to zoom down the outside of the track to win in dazzling style by 2.6-metres. Gareth Rattray showed he is primed to represent the host state in the Drivers Championship on Saturday night with an inspired drive on Ready To Fire ($3.50) coming from near last at the bell, while trainer-driver Christian Salter produced Kwiatkowski first up from a two months lay-off to power down the centre of the track for victory.

Mersey Delight delivered a knockout blow to harness racing punters when she upstaged the top fancies in the McKillop Insurance Brokers Stakes on Sunday night at a water-soaked Luxbet Racing Centre in Launceston. The Bettor's Delight - The Spider Woman six-year-old mare, trained at Kimberley by David Hayes, was one of three despised outsiders in the field and was sent out at bolters odds ($78), but that didn't stop her notching up the fourth win of her career. Driver Paul Ashwood snagged Mersey Delight to the pegs behind the leader Whenthegroundshook in the charge to the first turn and enjoyed a soft run until 200 metres from home when the gap opened between the frontrunner and Goggo Gee Gee. Mersey Delight (pictured-No 3) surged through the opening to gain the day in a blanket finish by a short half-head over Goggo Gee Gee with the favourite Jilliby Gigi close-up third. Ben Yole took the training honours, preparing four winners for the night. Postal Express ($25), driven by Rohan Hillier started the ball rolling early by flying home in the opening race on the card. Punters were much happier when the state's leading trainer prepared the winner of race three, the 6TY Stakes. Hear The Call, the $2.60 favourite, was lifted over the line by Robert Walters after leading all the way over 1680-metres, defeating Olwen Jackka by a head. Ben's third winner came when Todd Rattray piloted Ultimate Courage ($18.70) to the post, knocking off the short-priced elect All My Savings by 1.4 metres. Robert Walters rounded out the successful night for the stable by turning in a drive of the night performance aboard Another Swinger, squeezing through along the pegs after the favourite Roger Ramjet galloped under pressure to topple the gallant Destreos in the shadows of the post. Last season's leading reinsman Todd Rattray also shrugged off the torrential rain that fell throughout the night to land a winning treble. Along with his victory with Ultimate Courage, Todd picked up wins with his highly talented five-year-old gelding Taurisi scoring a runaway victory by 11.4 metres and followed up with success behind promising four-year-old Hayley's Comet ($2.60). Cromac Jamie ($12) led all the way for owner-trainer Bianca Heenan scoring a solid win over the luckless Full Speed Ahead in race seven. Dylan Ford dictated the terms to a nicety with the nine-year-old and still had a metre up his sleeve in a driving finish over the odds-on favourite Full Speed Ahead, which was badly inconvenienced at the start. Eternal Shadow broke through for the first win of its career in the last for trainer-driver Paul Williams. The Shadow Play - Eternal Life four-year-old gelding got home by the barest of margins over Triple Aitch Fella in the very last stride. When studying  the sectionals from Sunday's meeting in Launceston you will need to factor in the torrential rain that fell throughout the night and the effect it had on the track. TasRacing

ON Friday September 8, 2017, Harness Racing New South Wales (HRNSW) Stewards suspended the licence of trainer, Ms Amanda Coffee, pursuant to Australian Harness Racing Rule 183. HRNSW has taken these measures after receiving a report from the Australian Racing Forensic Laboratory (ARFL) that xylometazoline had been detected in the blood sample taken from WAKE UP QUINN following its win in race 8, the PARKES FURNITURE ONE PACE (2040m) at Parkes on Sunday August 6, 2017. The “B” sample has been sent to Racing Analytical Services Limited (RASL) in Victoria for confirmatory testing. HRNSW Stewards considered all available evidence at that time and determined that Rule 183 should be invoked based on the following factors: The existence of a prima facie case against you based on the certificate from ARFL; The nature of the substance; The absolute nature of AHRR 190 offences; The likely penalty of a significant period of disqualification if a prohibited substance offence is proven; The high unlikelihood that AHRR 256 will have any application if a prohibited substance offence is proven; The fact that this is not a finding of guilt and that this will militate against any perceived reputational damage as a result of a suspension; The fact that an offence against AHRR 190 does not involve any aspect of intent and that this must further militate against any perceived reputational damage as a result of a suspension.  (h) HRNSW’s protective objectives in the course of its core function to control, supervise and regulate harness racing in this State Ms Coffee has not been charged with any breach of the Rules and has been advised of her right of appeal against the imposition of Rule 183. HRNSW Stewards have commenced an investigation into this sample result and an Inquiry will be scheduled in due course.

Tasracing has secured the rights for Tasmania to host the first Australian Female Harness Drivers’ Championships in Launceston on Sunday 11 March 2018. The event will be hosted by the Launceston Pacing club (LPC) with the support of Tasracing and endorsement of Harness Racing Australia (HRA). Tasracing CEO Vaughn Lynch said securing the inaugural event was a boon for Tasmanian harness racing and women’s sport in general: “Racing has proudly led the way in the area of equal participation by women in sport for a long time. Tasracing was determined to recognise females in harness racing and to celebrate the nation’s talented female champions’. He said. The Inaugural Female Harness Drivers’ Championships will mark the conclusion of the national Women’s Cancer Foundation Teal Pants awareness campaign which runs from 1st February to 11th March 2018. Female harness drivers around Australia raise awareness of Ovarian Cancer and funds for the Women’s Cancer Foundation, by wearing teal driving pants while racing. Women’s Cancer Foundation supporter and fundraiser, Duncan McPherson  OAM, said: “We are delighted that the inaugural Australian Female Drivers’ Championships will continue the promotion of this extremely worthwhile cause, and that the champion will be crowned on the last day of this year’s Teal Pants campaign.” HRA CEO Andrew Kelly said granting Tasmania the right to host the first event of this kind recognised the state’s strong harness racing industry, excellent facilities and commitment to promoting female participation: “Tasmania has proven itself a great host of previous national Drivers Championships, so the opportunity to showcase the state’s strong female participation record and support of the Women’s Cancer Foundation with this inaugural female series was an easy decision.” Chester Bullock, President of the LPC, said he was looking forward to welcoming participants. “The LPC can’t wait to throw open our doors to the best female drivers in the country, and to show them, their families and supporters the best that Tasmanian racing has to offer.” by Tasracing

Talented young Tasmanian harness racing trainer Chris Aylett believes New South Wales reject War Dan Star has a future in Tasmania following the two-year-old's impressive win at his second start in the state in Devonport on Friday night. War Dan Star came from the Amanda Turnbull stable where he had four unplaced starts which led to him being sacked. But his owners, Victorian Danny Zavitsanos and Tasmanian Warren Viney, decided to send the horse to Tasmania. "Dad (Phillip) trained a few for Warren (Viney) when he first started out in harness racing and he always said he wanted to get me a good horse," Chris Aylett said. "This bloke is a good honest little horse and I think he'll be better next year." War Dan Star was backing up after a nose second in Launceston five days earlier when one of the owners backed him at 40-1. "He looked like winning that race (when he hit the front in the straight) but the leader kicked back," Aylett said. "We'll go back to Launceston next week for a heat of the Breeders Crown, because he's paid up for that series (In Victoria), then we'll see where we go from there. "He could go on to the Golden Slipper if he's happy but it would be a big effort for a two-year-old to race that many weeks in a row." Driver Rohan Hadley had War Dan Star travelling comfortably in the one-out-one-back position before he sent the gelding three-wide to make his challenge about 800m from home. War Dan Star ($9.12) then sustained a long run to score a comfortable five-metre win over Ideal Karalta and Maybe Jack. Peter Staples

Brady Woods emerged as the winner of the BOTRA Claiming Novice Drivers Series when he partnered his charges to fourth place in the final two heats of the six-race harness racing series in Launceston on Sunday night. Woods entered the final round of heats on 45 points and leading by one from Taylor Ford but after she finished third in the fifth heat she held a one-point advantage going into the final heat in which she was aboard the favourite Diddley Bow. But Diddley Bow made a mistake early in the race and couldn't recover to finish well back while Woods guided rank outsider last Guy Standing ($101) but he managed to snag fourth place and earn enough points to be declared the winner. The 21-year-old from the Fingal Valley in central Tasmania, who drove two winners from the first four heats, was thrilled with the result and said harness racing was an integral part of his life. His father Scott Woods and the young driver's grandfather Robert Woods are both quality horsemen who have been his guiding lights so it was a natural progression for Brady to follow in their footsteps. Ford also drove two winners from the first four heats of which two each were held at Devonport and Hobart. Talented teenage driver Jack Laugher won the final two heats as a result of top drives aboard Karalta Kruise for Kent Rattray and the Todd Rattray-trained God Sake. Laugher finished third behind Woods and Ford. Peter Staples

Harness racing three-year-old pacer Johns Legacy delivered his best effort this season to break his maiden status in the Carlton Draught Stakes in Launceston last Sunday night. With talented young driver Jack Laugher in the cart Johns Legacy was able to lead but the driver cleverly opted to take a trail when the race favourite Williamtell ($2.50) scooted around the field to attack for the lead. Williamtell sped clear turning for home but when Laugher eased Johns Legacy ($16) out to challenge the gelding powered home to score by two metres from Chenin Valley that also sprouted wings in the straight with the favourite third. Johns Legacy's trainer Cleone Hill was thrilled with the result and praised the effort of Tasmania's leading junior driver. "That was a top drive from Jack (Laugher)," Hill said. Johns Legacy is a special horse to Hill as he was the last foal bred by her late father John Jetson. "He is a very special horse for us as he was the very first foal born after Dad (John Jetson) passed away. "My son Scott named him Johns Legacy, which was the perfect fit," Hill said. Jetson was a very successful owner-breeder. He owned popular sire JR Mint and he part-owned the highly rated sire Time Stands Still. Hill prepares a small team and operates an agistment farm on her late father's property Jetsonville Park situated on the North-East Coast near Scottsdale. Johns Legacy is expected to have his next start in Launceston on Sunday week. Peter Staples

Teenage reinsman Jack Laugher emerged the winner of the annual Youngbloods Challenge for novice harness racing drivers in Launceston on Sunday night to further emphasise his impact on the novice driving ranks in Tasmania. Laugher lengthened his lead in the first heat on the night (heat 5) when courtesy of an excellent drive he finished third aboard Marnu The Beast to earn nine points to take his overall tally to 51 heading into the sixth and final heat of the series. The 18-year-old from Launceston went onto the last heat 13 points clear of his nearest rival Nicholas Brockman who was aboard an outsider Kvitova Leis ($29.40) that was listed as an emergency and only gained a start when Brockman's original drive Iden Amrak was scratched. Laugher, 18, needed only to finish in the top eight in the field of nine to walk away with the prize. Laugher partnered The Shelley Barnes-trained Saywhat that drew the outside of the front row and Laugher made his intentions clear by working the horse forward to face the breeze outside of the leader Put Mback. Mid-race Laugher opted to take the leader on without success which left Saywhat vulnerable at the business end of the race. Brockman eased Kvitova Leis to the outside of the field in the home straight and the mare rattled home to win convincingly with Laugher's charge falling back through the field. Saywhat finished sixth but still earned enough points to give Laugher the series by two points from Brockman Final points in the 2017 Youngbloods Challenge series. 56 - Jack Laugher. 54 - Nicholas Brockman. 53 - Taylor Ford. 41- Brady Woods. 40 - Justin Howlett. 39 - Matthew Howlett. 37 - Samantha Freeman and Hannah Vandongen. 34 - Dylan Ford. 28 - Samantha Gangell.

Underrated harness racing mare Capture Me set a record in Launceston last Friday night that most punters would have rued. At a meeting that resulted in a mixture of favourites and mid-price winners on the eight-event card Capture Me started at cricket score odds. The Ben Yole-trained mare paid $98.10 for the win and $19 the place on the Ubet tote but where the record was set was the dividends she returned on the NSW tote which was a massive $274.20 for the win and $37.10 for a place. Surprisingly, Capture Me had some support in fixed odds markets firming from $81 to $61 before easing out to start at $101. It was a gem of a drive from Natalee Emery who settled the four-year-old daughter of Village Jolt near the rear and five-back the fence from her outside second-row draw. In the back straight the last time Emery persevered with rails runs and when Crafty Old Fox that had faced the breeze, started to capitulate it gave her the chance to get her charge off the fence and when she eased her out four-wide in the home straight she powered home to score by over three metres. Olivers Mate came from well back to grab second with Tenfour that had trailed the leaders sneaking into third place. Capture Me arrived in Yole's stable from South Australia in January and won at her second start for him in Hobart that followed a first-up third in Launceston and she has since notched two wins and five minor placings from 16 subsequent outings.

Consistent three-year-old pacer Playing Arkabella delivered another outstanding harness racing performance to emerge triumphant in the $40,000 Group 3 Bandbox Stakes over 2200 metres in Launceston on Friday night. The Paul Hill-trained filly won the two-year-old version of the sires stakes series last season (Evicus Stakes) so to capture the three-year-old edition puts her in elite company. Playing Arkabella had her colours lowered in the Bandbox Prelude by El Jays Mystery that edged her out in the last stride but with a more favourable barrier draw and a heady drive from Rohan Hillier she justified the punters' faith in the daughter of Shadow Play. The filly was heavily backed to start the $1.80 favourite courtesy of drawing barrier three on the front line while her archrival El Jays Mystery had to start from the outside of the second row courtesy of being out of the draw in mobile events. The Todd Rattray-trained Harshali began well from gate five and eventually worked to the lead from rank outsider Safari Oakey ($126) but Hillier was content to send Playing Arkabella around the field to face the breeze from where he could dictate the pace of the race. Ricky Duggan sent El Jays Mystery three-wide to challenge 600 metres out but she was making hard work of it while Harshali looked to be travelling easily and put three metres on the favourite turning for home. But when Hillier called on his filly for the big effort she dug deep and went on to defeat the fast-finishing Huiffier by two metres with El Jays Mystery hanging on for third ahead of Harshali and Halo Henry that dead-heated for fourth.

The Todd Rattray-trained Harjeet led throughout to win the $40,000 Group 3 Globe Derby Stakes for harness racing three-year-old colts and geldings at  Launceston, Tasmania on Friday night. Harjeet ($2.80) began brilliantly from gate two to lead while the favourite Rocknroll Turbo ($2.20) was caught three-wide until driver Rohan Hillier urged him forward to face the breeze while the other main contender Usain Jolt was dragged back to last from his outside front-row draw, Duggan made his move 700 metres out but that's when Hillier called on the favourite to stake his claim and he moved a half-length clear of Harjeet but Rattray's horse refused to wilt. Harjeet regained the lead and went on to defeat Rocknroll Turbo by 9.5 metres with Usain Jolt a game third almost two metres away. It was Harjeet's third win from only six starts and while he is still very immature Rattray is quietly confident he has a bright future. "My horse hung out and then hung in so once he learns to go straight he's going to be a very good horse," Rattray said. Harjeet a Rocknroll Hanover gelding was bred by the Rattray family and Wayne McLaughlin who was thrilled with the win. "I started this breeding program with the Rattray family about 10 years ago and this is the first one we've been able to get to the races so hopefully he can go right on with it," McLaughlin said.

Former Tasmanian Derby winner Mister Lennox broke the harness racing track record in Launceston on Sunday night when he flashed home to win the $10,000 Golden Mile over 1680 metres. The Juanita McKenzie-trained gelding emerged from the pack to chase down tear away leader I Am Camelot to score by two metres clocking a mile rate of 1.54.5 that set a new benchmark for open class pacers. It eclipsed the previous best of 1.55 set by Queens Advocate, also trained by McKenzie, in February last year. It made it back-to-back Golden Miles for the five-year-old gelding that was dispatched to top NSW trainer Paul Fitzpatrick after winning last year's Golden Mile however he was unplaced from five starts. McKenzie said Mister Lenox could soon head to Melbourne with the hope of winning an M0 event at Melton. It was one of five winners in succession for Hillier who captured races 5-9 for what was a personal best haul. Hillier has driven four winners on a program a few times, according to the popular reinsman, but this is his first quintet of winners. His winners were Mister Lennox, Chirac, Rocknroll Turbo, Chenin Valley and Lord Jones. Two of the wins were aboard horses he trains, Rocknroll Turbo and Chenin Valley, while the others were for individual trainers. To highlight his popularity, Hillier had a drive in every race on the 10-event card. Peter Staples

When a horse broke in the path of the well-backed Adele Said ($10 into $5.70) soon after the start in Launceston on Friday night most harness racing punters who had invested on the filly were close to tearing up their tickets. But it's a good thing they didn't because despite losing about 50 metres in the scrimmage Adele Said recovered to go on and score a very impressive win. After the incident driver Todd Rattray had the three-year-old settled into a strong pace but he was forced to drive her for luck and as it happens the luck presented itself and the filly did the rest. Adele Said (Well Said-Catz N Ratz) burst clear of the pack in the home straight and went on to score by six metres from Only A Myth with Holly Halo almost three metres astern. Adele Said recorded a mile rate of 2.03.7 which was good given the circumstances and she ran home her last half-mile (800m) in 61 seconds. Butler, who spent the early days of his training career at Lachlan near New Norfolk in the Derwent Valley, south-west of Hobart, has long been considered one of Tasmania's most talented horsemen. He trained Joesashyguy to win the 1999 Tasmanian Derby to etch his names in the record books as one of the youngest to train a Group winner in the state at age 21. Butler recently relocated to the north of the state where he has set up a training operation at Pipers River about 50km north of Launceston and he plans to expand his training enterprise with the help of his life partner and talented driver Kristy Grant who is the granddaughter of veteran harness trainer Dick Eaves. Butler and Grant moved into their new residence, formerly owned by prominent harness racing breeders Lyndon and Gail Menegon, last month and he expects to quickly build up the number of stable tenants. "We've been on the property for about three weeks and Adele said was our first starter training from our new property and Jillibi Gigi ran second later in the night so it's a fairly good start," Butler said. "We have eight horses in work so hopefully in another month or so we'll be able to take a team of four or five to the races." Peter Staples
