Art Of My Art made it three wins from is past four starts when he scored a narrow win in the Carlton Draught Pace for harness racing three-year-olds over 2200 metres in Launceston on Sunday night. The gelded son of Art Colony had been cleverly placed by his trainer John Castles who entered hi in non-penalty races that made up heats in a novice driver series in which he won one and placed second in another before winning a 3C0 at Devonport prior to this latest assignment. Art of My Art drew awkwardly on the inside of the second row but somehow Rohan Hillier managed to secure the one-out-one-back position after travelling about 600 metres. God Sake faced the breeze outside of Rocknroll Dancer that set a solid clip with All Style Sammy on the leader's back. When God Sake forged to the lead Hillier sent his charge three-wide to give chase and after finding the front 200 metres out he battled gamely to have just enough in hand to defeat All Style Sammy with God Sake third Peter Staples

Star Tasmanian three-year-old pacer Ryley Major will most likely head to Queensland next month to tackle that state's harness racing Derby following his impressive win in the $30,000 Globe Derby Stakes in Launceston on Sunday night. Ryley Major made it seven wins in succession when he led throughout to easily take out the prestigious sires stakes event over 2200 metres scoring comfortably from Hillview Jake and Spot Eight. The gelding's trainer-driver and part-owner Rohan Hillier said Ryley major had missed an opportunity to contest the rich Group 1 sires stakes series in Victoria for which he was qualified but that the $75,000 Queensland Derby has become a possible target. "There's no doubt this horse would be competitive against what is likely to go around in the Queensland Derby so I just have to wait and see how the horse is in the next week or so before I make a final decision on travelling him to Queensland," Hillier said. "He's unbeaten from eight starts this season so he's definitely earned enough to warrant making the trip and if I go I'll take the family and make a holiday of it. "If we go I'd also run him in the $25,000 Gold Coast Derby on July 9 which is a week before the Queensland Derby and they are both run at Albion Park. "He's won this race (Globe Derby) by leading but that's not his go. He has really learned how to race this time in but he is much better horse when he doesn't lead. This season's Tasmanian Derby winner was competitive against the best two-year-olds last season but he has gone to another level this season and Hillier is confident he will be even better as a four and five-year-old.

Two horses still in the infancy of their careers but already billed as potential superstars will contest feature harness racing in Tasmania over the next two weekends. Three-year-old gelding Ryley Major has been described by successful trainer Rohan Hillier as “the best horse I’ve had for a long time” and “lengths better” than his mother Shez Ryleymak who won 23 races and was a Tasmanian horse of the year. Two-year-old colt Rocknroll Turbo is raced by successful owner-breeder Charlie Beadman who says he’s been told that the youngster could surpass all his other top horses. Ryley Major will run in the $30,000 Globe Derby Stakes final at Mowbray on Sunday night and Rocknroll Turbo in the $30,000 Dandy Patch Stakes final in Hobart on Sunday week. Hillier has his sights on the rich Breeders Crown final in Melbourne in August with Ryley Major, who is unbeaten in seven starts this season and is likely to have a run in Victoria before he contests the Tasmanian heat in Hobart on July 8. The Art Major gelding has drawn barrier 3 for the Globe Derby final and will be at unbackable odds. Rocknroll Turbo has raced only twice for a win in the Debutante Stakes at Mowbray in January and an impressive victory in the Dandy Patch prelude last Sunday night. He is a half-brother to star four-year-old Jerrys Jet, also owned and bred by Beadman, who has won 15 of his 19 starts. This time last year Beadman said he thought Jerrys Jet might turn out to be the best horse he has ever owned or bred – better than Thomas Magnum (18 wins including the Tasmanian Championship), Jurassic Jack (25 wins),  Whisky Regal (24 wins) and Ultimate Girl (13 wins including the Tasmanian Oaks). Then, more recently, he revealed that trainer Paul Hill had told him that Rocknroll Turbo might be better than Jerrys Jet. “But we’ll wait and see – it would be hard for him to do any more than Jerrys Jet has done,” Beadman said. Hill himself is on the verge of a unique feat. Last year he won the two-year-old sires stake double – Dandy Patch and Evicus – with Hillview Jake and Chica Bella. Next week he will be a short-priced favourite to repeat the double with Rocknroll Turbo and Playing Arkabella. No trainer has completed the double in successive years since the Evicus was first run in 1990. Hill also has Chica Bella in Sunday night’s other feature race, the $30,000 Bandbox Stakes final, and she is the likely favourite despite an ordinary draw (barrier 10). The filly, winner of 10 of her 18 starts, was odds-on in last week’s prelude but met early interference which unseated driver Ricky Duggan. By Greg Mansfield Reprinted with permission of the site

The horror stretch of wet weather that has bombarded Tasmania over the past fortnight has had a dramatic effect on the progress of some of the state's best pacers including Tasmanian Derby winner Ryley Major who was being aimed at the rich Vicbred series for harness racing three-year-olds. Ryley Major was to have had his final hit-out in Tasmania in a Globe Derby (Sires Stakes) Prelude in Launceston last Sunday night which was to serve as the first of two runs he would have needed to tackle a Vicbred Super Series heat at Kilmore (Victoria) next week. But when the Launceston meeting was abandoned because of rain and the state of the track it left the gelding's owner-trainer Rohan Hillier with no option but to scrap plans to head interstate. "My horse could not have gone to Melbourne for the Vicbred series heat without having that run (Globe Derby Prelude) and one other," Hillier said. "The weather has been so bad that I haven't been able to work my horse like he should have been because the tracks have been put out of play by the amount of rain we've had. "I had originally intended running him in the Globe Derby Prelude as a conditioning run before the Vicbred heats and had no intention of running in the Globe Derby final but mother nature changed everything. "When they rescheduled the Globe Derby Prelude to last night (Friday) in Launceston I had to run him. He was already getting fat because of the work he'd missed so now he will go into next Sunday night's Globe Derby final probably still a bit underdone but hopefully I can pour the work into him this week to have him good enough on the night. "We will then concentrate on having a crack at the Breeders Crown series in Victoria in July-August," he said. On Friday night in Launceston Ryley Major toyed with his rivals on his way an effortless win in the Globe Derby Prelude over 2200m. Outsider Spot Eight led from the pole position but he quickly handed up to the second favourite Hillview Jake when he was sent scurrying around the field from the rear to take up the front running while Hillier was content to allow Ryley Major to drop out to last from his outside front-row draw. Hillview Jake travelled well in the lead but when the pace slackened slightly Hillier sent his three-year-old around the field to face the breeze for the last lap. The Tasmanian Derby winner was under a stranglehold turning for home and when Hillier released the reins the gelded son of Art Major he sped clear and went on to record a convincing win over Spot Eight ($41) with Timely Sovereign ($41) a close-up third ahead of Kwiatkowski ($12) that missed the start by 20 metres and did a good job to finish as close as he did.

Star four-year-old pacer Jerrys Jet delivered another stellar harness racing performance to score a narrow but game win in the $30,000 Raider Stakes final at Devonport on Sunday night. After slotting into the coveted one-out-one-back position after travelling 400 metres, the gelding's trainer-driver Rohan Hillier sent him three-wide to challenge in the back straight and he had the leader and stablemate Four Ex Dan covered turning for home. The leader rallied so Hillier had to get busy on the $1.80 favourite and just when that stoush had ended along came outsider One mans pass to issue a challenge that fell short by a metre. It was the four-year-old Jereme's Jet gelding's 15th win from 19 starts and his owner-breeder Charlie Beadman was pleased with the result. "He's not at his best on this tight Devonport track and it took a very good drive from Rohan (Hillier) to win it, " Beadman said. The race was delayed for about 15 minutes after Four Ex Dan threw himself down on the track near the starting point and his sulky became entangled in the outside fence. The gelding had to return to the stables to undergo a vet's examination before being allowed to start and a replacement sulky was required. Four Ex Dan led, as expected, from the pole position with Blackjackhanover on his outside, Fioki on the leader's back and Jerrys Jet on his outside. Beadman said that Jerrys Jet would press on with his current campaign but he didn't have any specific targets and dispelled rumours that the horse was heading interstate. "I'll have a talk with Rohan but we're not planning to send him to the mainland at this stage,'' Beadman said. Peter Staples

After taking his time as a two-year-old to discover what harness racing was all about the now three-year-old Ryley Major has emerged as a star in his own right. At UBET Park Hobart last Sunday night Ryley Major  gave his rivals a pacing lesson to score an impressive all-the-way win in the Tasmanian Derby over 2579 metres. The Rohan Hillier-trained gelding made it look easy as he mustered speed to retain the front from the pole position. Despite being pressured over the final lap the gelded son of Art Major forged clear over the concluding stages to score by over four metres from El Major with Code Black, that faced the breeze throughout, a head away third. It was Ryley Major's firth win in succession this season and his sixth in a row if you carry over his win at his last start as a two-year-old in July last year. While it was far from a career best effort it was clearly the gelding's biggest pay day with the winner's prize of $17,286 taking his career tally to almost $54,000. "That might not be his best win but it is definitely the most prestigious," Hillier said. The weather conditions made it tough for racing on Sunday with gale-force winds gusting up to 80 kph causing concern for many runners, especially down the back straight. "The race was run in blustery conditions and he had to lead the charge into strong wind but he handled it well." "The horse has come a long way this time in and I am confident he can continue to improve," he said. Ryley Major was bred by Hillier who owned and raced the dam Shez Ryleymak who won 23 and placed 16 times from her 50 starts for over $270,000 in prizemoney. Shez Ryleymak also was named Tasmanian Horse of the Year in her two and three-year-old seasons. Ryley Major is likely to have his next start in the Tasmanian Yearling Sale Classic for 3YO colts and geldings in Launceston on Sunday night. While Riley Major was impressive there was at least one hard-luck story from the race with talented gelding Hillview Jake unable to obtain a clear run at any stage after being hemmed in behind the leader for the duration. Driver Ricky Duggan tried desperately to find a way off the fence but every time he shifted out to make a move the gap closed but he plugged away to finish fourth, beaten five metres. Peter Staples

Top Tasmanian harness racing trainer Rohan Hillier was looking forward to taking Denza Doozy to the races for the first time after he started to show some promise at his Beauty Point training complex. That was until he ventured to the trials with the well-bred three-year-old early last week where he galloped and that put some doubt in Hillier's mind as to whether he could win on debut. But the well-bred Parsons Den gelding made no mistakes on debut last Sunday night and delivered a sterling effort to win a 3YO pace over 2200m convincingly and at the lucrative price of $13.50. ``I thought he only had to get around safely to win,'' Hillier said after Denza Doozy ran home strongly to beat Kwiatkowski and Ken Two Stars. ``When I got him from James Rattray (in Sydney) about six weeks ago he told me that the horse went OK but just wasn't quite good enough for up there. ``But he took me by surprise when he galloped in a trial the other day so I would have been happy just to see him get around safely tonight.'' Denza Doozy settle4d one-out-one-back and when Hillier sent him three-wide to make his run he gathered in the leaders and went on to score impressively. The gelding is owned and was bred by Mark Panton who has enjoyed much success over the years and in particular with this horse's half-sister Nola Mayhem that won eight of her 21 starts including a bandbox Stakes at two and a Granny Smith Stakes mares' classic as a four-year-old.

Victorian harness racing trainer Adam Kelly has had a lot of success during his annual vigils to Tasmania and at Devonport last Sunday night he almost made it a clean sweep with his three runners. Kelly's classy open class horse Five Star Anvil made a one-act affair of the free-for-all scoring comfortably from his three rivals. A disappointing line-up given the pressure trainers have ben placing the governing body to frame more free-for-all races. Nevertheless it was a convincing win and one that pleased local driver Rohan Hillier who partnered all three of his runners at the meeting. "The horse won easily but I think anyone in the grandstand could have driven him and won," Hillier said. "Five Star Anvil is in Tassie specifically for the Easter Cup at the end of the month so he'll line up in an Easter Cup prelude next Sunday night and then go the Easter Cup a fortnight later." Kelly's other winner was Highview Ruler (Elsu-Highview Courage) that won the Linx Coffee Van Pace over 2297 metres, also with Rohan Hillier in the sulky. It was Highview Ruler's Australian debut and the four-year-old could not have been more impressive. Highview Ruler had five starts in New Zealand with his best effort a third at Gore at his last appearance in New Zealand in October last year. "Highview Ruler is a very nice horse and I'm sure he will be winning better races than the one he won tonight," Hillier said.   Kelly's consistent mare Starzzz Of Icon was a game second to the in-form Shelley Barnes-trained mare Angel or Demon who made it four wins from as many starts this time in.   Peter Staples

One of last season's star Tasmanian three-year-old pacers Jerrys Jet returned to harness racing with a sensational win in Devonport last night. Jerrys Jet lined up in a C5-C6 event over 2297 metres in which he drew the outside of the second row from which trainer-driver Rohan Hillier had no option but to allow the gelding to drift back to last. Poker Storm made the most of the pole position to lead and his trainer-driver Adrian Dugan ensured a solid tempo. Hillier sent his stable star three-wide to make his move and he was accommodated with a ride home on the back of Dodgermemate. Poker Storm had plenty to offer when Jerrys Jet cruised alongside him turning for home and looked at one stage that he might cause an upset but the $1.40 favourite knuckled down to his task and edged clear 20 metres from the line. Jerrys Jet hit the line a metre clear of Jerrys Jet with Dodgermemate nine meters astern. It was the gelding's first start since July last year. He and Mister Lenox were the two stand-out three-year-olds last season with Mister Lenox's Tasmanian Derby win enough to give him the edge in three-year-old of the year voting. Jerrys Jet will be aimed at the $30,000 Raider Stakes for four-year-olds at Devonport next month after which he is most likely to embark on an interstate campaign. Peter Staples

Star Tasmanian reinsman Gareth Rattray wrapped up another great season by winning the Tasmanian harness racing driver's premiership but this latest crown was special. Despite missing the first two months of the season through illness Rattray powered his way to the lead mid-season and a treble at UBET Park Hobart on Sunday night gave him 100 wins for the season. His treble came courtesy of Fioki winning a C2-C3 over 2090 metres; rank outsider Cardinal Eddy scoring in a nail-biting finish in a 3C1-C0 and he finished with a heady drive to win aboard the Matthew Dwyer-trained Original Art in a C4-C5 . It was the third time he has reached the magical century of winners and this latest title is his 10th in succession. To say Rattray has dominated this past decade would be an understatement with his feats so far ranking him amongst the greatest drivers of all time. The first time he topped the century was in the 2007-08 season when he drove 113 winners but two seasons later he bettered that by snaring 115. His father Barrie also achieved the feat three times driving a state record 118 winners during the 1989-90 season; 100 in 1995-96 and 109 the following season. The father and son are the only two to reach the 100 milestone in Tasmania's driving ranks. This season Gareth passed another milestone of reaching the 1000 winners mark and he now sits fifth on the all-time list with 1040 winners but he still has a way to go to catch his father who has amassed 1566 winners and is still driving competitively. Ricky Duggan had another good season in the caret to end with 68 winners to take his career tally to 1370 to take over second place on the al-time list from Neville Webberley (1369). All-time driver's record: Barrie Rattray          1566 Ricky Duggan          1370 Neville Webberley   1369 Darrell Alexander    1315 Gareth Rattray          1040 Scott Ford                    891 Jack Stamford             848 Rohan Hadley            794 Don Peck                     661 Mark Stanley               638 Terry Knowles             572 Tony Petersen            569 Len Moriarty                556 Terry Peck                   556 Ken Austin                   551 Webb Jones                544 Hec Baker                    516 Meanwhile Beauty Point horseman Rohan Hillier captured his first trainer's premiership ending the season with 43 winners from only 100 starters which must rank as one of the best strike rates of all time. Hillier finished ahead of Barrie Rattray (41) and Juanita McKenzie (37) who won her fourth female trainer's title ahead of Melissa Maine (33). McKenzie and Maine proved beyond doubt that they can hold their own amongst the male trainers. Dylan Ford was the leading junior driver finishing with 34 wins for what was his third consecutive title while his younger sister Tayla Ford and Wade Rattray dead-heated for second with 16 wins apiece. However Ford was a clear winner in the female driver award winning from Natalee Emery (12) and Erin Hollaway (11). Peter Staples

Star three-year-old pacer Jerrys Jet ended his season on a high with win in a C4-C6 event over 2200 metres at the harness racing meeting in Launceston on Sunday night to stretch his winning sequence to seven from as many starts for Beauty Point-based trainer Rohan Hillier. Jerrys Jet was one of last season's best two-year-olds winning every feature except the Dandy Patch final in which he was a close-up second to Boasson Hagen when in the care of trainer Paul Hill. The gelding had only one more start for Hill before being transferred to Hillier in February. Jerrys Jet won the $10,000 3YO Sires Produce at his first start for Hillier in May and along the way he won the $30,000 Group 3 Globe Derby Stakes. At his past two starts he has emerged triumphant in high grade races against older and more experienced opposition. Despite winning on Sunday night the Charlie and Connie Beadman-owned gelding was not at the top of his game according to Hillier. "I thought that his work in the week leading up to this latest start was a bit below par and he took that into his race on Sunday night," Hillier said. "He won but it confirmed he needs a spell and Charlie (Beadman) is putting him straight in the paddock and he'll probably be out for a decent spell of about three months," he said. Jerrys Jet has always shown ability but Hillier is confident the gelded son of Jeremes Jet will go to another level next preparation. "I am quite excited about his prospects next season because there's no doubt he will head interstate to try and win an M0 and I am sure he will continue to get better with age." "But Charlie (Beadman) will decide when and if he leaves the state," he said. Peter Staples

Any doubts as to whether star Tasmanian juvenile pacer Hillview Jake will be named two-year-old of the year were put to bed at the harness racing meeting at UBET Park Hobart last night where the gelding delivered another stellar performance to win the Premier's Breeders Plate over 2090 metres. It was the last 2YO feature of the season and Hillview Jake went into the race with impeccable form having won the Golden Slipper, 2YO Sweepstakes and Dandy Patch finals along with two other juvenile victories but he was surprisingly sent around the second favourite at $2.50. Victorian gelding Soho Chelsea owned that honour as he was backed in to start the $1.70 favourite following his two wins in Victoria that led to an impressive Tasmanian debut in a heat of the Breeders Crown in Launceston last week. Connections of Soho Chelsea opted to stay in the state to tackle the Breeders Plate before heading back to Victoria to tackle a semi-final of the Breeders Crown. But the Paul Hill-trained Hillview Jake defied the betting drift and proved why he will be named Tasmania's best two-year-old this season. Hillview Jake began well as did the Dean Braun-trained Soho Chelsea that made full use of the pole position but when Hill sent Hillview Jake forward Soho Chelsea's driver Rohan Hillier opted to take hold and take a sit behind Hillview Jake. A lap from home Hillier edged Soho Chelsea off the fence to race at the leader's wheel and as they headed down the back stretch the last time Soho Chelsea issued a serious challenge but it was to no avail. When Hill called on Hillview Jake to extend the gelded son of Cardmaster Hanover sprinted clear and he went on to easily defeat $50 outsider Ductape with Streetside Classic a closing third ahead of Iden Amrak that was denied a clear run over the last 400 metres. Ductape, prepared by Ben Rossendell, settled last and also suffered some interference so his effort was full of merit to finish second. Soho Chelsea knocked up in the home straight to finish fifth. Peter Staples

Star Tasmanian two-year-old pacer Hillview Jake will have his last start of the season at the harness racing meeting  at UBET Park in Hobart on Sunday night in the $10,000 Tasmanian Premier's Breeders Plate over 2090 metres. Hillview Jake has been the standout colt or gelding juvenile this season winning the Golden Slipper, Tasmanian Sweepstakes and Dandy Patch finals along with two other impressive wins. His Dandy Patch win with Gavin Lang aboard was outstanding. he clocked a mile rate of two minutes but dashed home his last half (800m) in a slick 56.9 seconds which is the fastest last half of any juvenile this season. While Hillview Jake should have the other local opposition covered in the race it is a well-bred gelding named Soho Chelsea from the Dean Braun stable at Lara in Victoria that could be the testing material for the local star. Soho Chelsea won two in succession in Victoria before venturing to Tasmania last week to win his Australasian Breeders Crown heat over 2200 metres in Launceston last Sunday night defeating Ken Two Stars comfortably. He produced a pedestrian mile rate of 2.05.1 but he ran home his last half (800m) in 57.8 without being fully tested. Soho Chelsea is in the care of top Tasmanian trainer-driver Rohan Hillier while racing in Tasmania and Hillier is very upbeat about his winning chances on Sunday night. "I was very impressed with this two-year-old and while Hillview Jake is very smart I think this one has what it takes to beat him on Sunday night," Hillier said. Soho Chelsea will return to Braun's stables next week and be prepared for his tilt at the Breeders Crown next month. Peter Staples

Star Tasmanian harness racing three-year-old pacer Jerrys Jet continued on his winning way at UBET Racing Centre in Launceston last Sunday night where he toyed with his rivals to win the McKillop Insurance Pace over 2200 metres. It was a relatively strong C4-C6 line-up with Palmisano showing his customary early speed to lead while Jerrys Jet's trainer-driver Rohan Hillier allowed the three-year-old to face the breeze but well away from the leader so as to not get his charge fired up. The ploy worked perfectly as nothing came around to disrupt Hillier's plan and when he called on Jerrys Jet to extend in the home straight the gelded son of Jeremes Jet claimed the leader and went on to score by over six metres from Palmisano with Aninchofhislife an eye-catching third 1.5 metres away. Hillier said there was never a moment when he had to get really busy on his stable star. "The plan was to lead but when Palmisano led and cleared out I thought we could just sit off him and ensure by horses didn't get too fired up," Hillier said. "I was on a $1.20 chance so I had to give him the easiest run possible and in the end it was probably his best since he's been with me." "To go out and do what he did against older and much more experienced horses is a real credit to him." "When he gets to open class next season that's when we'll see the best of this horse," he said. Jerrys Jet has won seven of his eight starts this season and has taken his career win tally to 12 from 14 lifetime starts for just over $90,000 in stakes. Hillier was hoping to run Jerrys Jet in the $10,000 3YO Championship in Launceston on Sunday week but with that race likely to fall over due to a lack of acceptances due to Jerrys Jet being amongst the likely candidates, Hillier may have no alternative but to send him for a spell. The managing owner of Jerrys Jet, Charlie Beadman, has been coy about sending the gelding interstate to race this preparation but next season he could be having to consider tackling races like the Chariots of Fire and the likes if he progresses as well as Hillier predicts. Jerrys Jet has the potential to reach the heights of Tasmania's dual Inter Dominion winner Beautide but we won't know until he is tested against the best interstate. But the horse might never race outside of Tasmania and sadly that is a distinct possibility. Peter Staples

Boom Tasmanian three-year-old pacer Jerrys Jet added another feature race win to his growing list of harness racing credits when he made a one-act affair of the $30,000 Globe Derby 3YO sires stakes final over 2200 metres at UBET Racing Centre in Launceston on Sunday night. The talented gelding had no trouble to lead and when trainer-driver Rohan Hillier gave him more rein at the top of the home straight he powered well clear of a top quality field to score by almost eight metres from Four Ex Dan with Fioki coming from near last to run third about three metres astern. Jerrys Jet is owned by Charlie and Connie Beadman in partnership with prominent harness trainer Paul Hill who prepared the gelding until he turned three. In Hill's care the son of Jereme's Jet won multiple feature races including the rich 2YO Sweepstakes final that was regarded by many pundits as one of the best win by a juvenile ever seen on the Hobart circuit. But after the gelding was placed second to No Spring Secrets in a race in Hobart in February he was sent to Hillier for whom the gelding has won four times from as many starts since returning to racing in early May. Jerrys Jet's career record stands at 10 wins and two seconds from 12 starts for over $66,000 in stakes. His best mile rate is 1.57.9 which he set in winning a C1-C2 in Launceston as a lead-up to this latest outing. Because he is not paid up for the Breeders Crown series in Victoria and he also is not Vicbred there are no feature races left for him in Tasmania. The Beadmans have owned and bred some top class performers over the years including Group 1 Tasmanian Pacing Championship winner Thomas Magnum but Jerrys Jet is rapidly gaining status and could soon be regarded as the best they have raced. Beadman was non-committal in regard to where Jerrys Jet goes from here but given he is not Breeders Crown qualified he might be sent to the paddock for a spell.   Peter Staples  

Star Tasmanian pacer Jerrys Jet delivered another brilliant performance at UBET Park Hobart on Sunday night to further tempt his harness racing owner into sending the three-year-old interstate. Jerrys Jet has won both of his starts this time in with this latest outing enough to encourage his owner Charlie Beadman to admit a trip to Sydney could be on the cards. His trainer Rohan Hillier is confident Jerrys Jet would be up to tackling three-year-old races at Menangle in NSW where he believes the Jeremes Jet gelding could run scintillating times. "We are happy with what the horse is doing but we won't be pushing him too hard at this stage," Beadman said. "I don't like to rush anything, especially my horses." "There are a few options to look at but right now we are happy to stay at home and tackle races here in Tasmania and we'll let the future look after itself," he said. Jerrys Jet is being aimed at the $30,000 Globe Derby (3YO sires stakes) next month but he will line up in a race in Launceston before tackling a Globe Derby heat on June 5. Peter Staples
