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

Classy harness racing mare Faithful Gabby will head interstate to prepare for the 4YO Breeders Crown for mares to be run at Bendigo next month. Faithful Gabby travelled to Melbourne last month to tackle an M0-M1 mares race that resulted in her finishing second, beaten a half-neck, to classy Victorian She's Just A Delight that clocked a mile rate of 1m.54. She was driven by Tasmania's top reinsman Gareth Rattray who believes the mare is capable of winning the Breeders Crown. "She was unlucky not to win that race in Victoria and to go down by such a narrow margin with the winner clocking a mile rate of 1.54 was a good effort and it proved she is up to the top mares over there," Rattray said. "She will head back to Victoria in a fortnight and have at least one more run before the Breeders Crown," he said. Faithful Gabby has had seven starts this season for six wins and a second for about $50,000 in stakes so she has earned her chance to mix it with the best in Australasia. Peter Staples

Chief Destroyer seems to have found a new lease on life with his effort at the harness racing meeting at Devonport on Monday night in a C2-C3 pace over 2297 metres his second win in the space of four outings. The Shelley Barnes-trained gelding won two in succession on country tracks in Victoria in February just prior to finding his way to Barnes' stables at Sassafras on Tasmania's North-West Coast. The gelding notched a couple of minor placings at his two starts for Barnes in May but it wasn't until Barnes took him to Devonport last month that he found a way to win. Chief Destroyer began his career in Victoria and won on debut in a 3YO event at Horsham when in the care of David Murphy. But his next win was two years later and what followed was mixed form in restricted grade races. Barnes has been patient and the gelding has just started to respond to his new training regime. At this latest outing he was rushed out of the gate to find the front and once driver James Johnson had him in his comfort zone the gelded son of It Is I-Sharleen was always travelling like a winner. Chief Destroyer kicked clear turning for home and went on to defeat outsider Buckingham Boy by four metres with Me Mate Les just over five metres away third.   Peter Staples

Inexperience proved to be no disadvantage for well-bred gelding Master Hanover at the harness racing meeting at Devonport on Monday night with the David Hayes-trained pacer proving too strong for his rivals in the Jeremy Rockliff Pace over 1930 metres. Master Hanover (Keith Toulmin) was having only his second start and was coming off a sixth on debut behind Ryley Major in Launceston. Toulmin allowed Master Hanover to settle worse than midfield off a solid speed set by Somedan while the well-backed Metro Mouse landed in the one-out-one-back spot. When Toulmin called on Master Hanover for the supreme effort in the back straight the gelding unleashed a powerful sprint. The Cardmaster Hanover gelding went on to score by a half-metre from Metro Mouse with Karalta Deluxe that was awkwardly placed three-back the fence for most of the race, an eye-catching third a half-metre astern. The winner was bred by the Hayes family from their well-performed broodmare Mersey Torado that raced 11 times for four wins over four preparations before being retired due to injury. This is Mersey Torado's second foal to race and she also has a weanling colt by Four Starzzz Shark. Peter Staples  

There are concerns harness racing industry professionals will leave Tasmania after a decision by the State Government that will result in reduced prize money for the industry. Under a 20-year funding deed, Tasracing is required to maintain industry prize money in real terms each year. But the State Government is now removing that indexation requirement, saying the industry needed more flexibility to become sustainable. Tasracing has proposed spreading the reduction across the three codes, with thoroughbreds losing $1.6 million, harness racing $791,000 and greyhounds $564,000. The body plans to implement the changes from October but will endeavour to provide a CPI increase to prize money from 2016-17. Racing Minister Jeremy Rockliff said the industry needed to grow and prosper. "Unfortunately, the model set up under the previous government was simply not sustainable," he said. "So we've had to make some difficult decisions to get this racing industry up on a sustainable footing. "We want a self-sustaining racing industry without having to take money from health and education in order to prop up that industry." Government has broken its promise, says Opposition Opposition racing spokesman Scott Bacon said the Liberals promised to increase stakes money before the election. "And now they've effectively done exactly the opposite," he said. Mr Rockliff said the previous government relied on band-aid measures to address Tasracing's funding gap, which was $3-5 million. "I won't wear any criticism at all from the Labor party, who were warned back in 2009 - so, six years ago - that the model that they set up was simply not sustainable," he said. Light Harness Tasmania secretary Mike Jones said the decision was disappointing. "This is another blow that's going to really make people sit down and think now, 'Am I getting a fair return for my effort?'" he said. "I would suspect that people will start to walk away. "We've only got maybe a dozen professional trainers and they're going to seriously sit down and think, 'How can I survive on this?'"

Tasmanian pacers have been producing some brilliant results interstate of late and it could continue this week, especially at the harness racing meeting at Melton on Friday night.   Mister Sumna has been plagued by injuries but his untapped ability convinced his owners Craig and Tania Hayes to persevere with the hope he might finally realise his full potential.   Mister Sumna is now in the care of Victorian trainer Dean Braun and he will tackle a race at Geelong tomorrow night (Thursday).   Here is an overview of the performance of Tasmanian-owned and or trained horses that performed well last week and a list of what horses are to compete interstate over the next few days.   Tasmanian's on Mainland Winners last week: (owners/lessees in brackets) *Miley Rose (Sonia Dornauf, Doug and Penny McKillop) $6,505 C3/C4 at Ballarat (9/07) *Tasbred El Jays Magic (Lyndon and Gail Menegon) $25,505 Mares FFA at Melton (10/07) *Tasbred Modern Ruler (Steve and Marni Davis) $21,420 FFA at Menangle (11/07) *Tasbred Blacks A Beauty (Bill and Tamra Fawdry) $3,000 R2/R4 at Melton (12/07)  Tasbred placings at major meetings last week: *Pachacuti (Lyndon and Simon Dakin) 3rd in $21,420 M0 at Menangle (11/07) *Tasbred Blue Pointer (Barry Stewart) 2nd in $21,240 FFA at Menangle (11/07) won by Modern Ruler - Tasbred *Clamorous (Arthur Wilson Memorial Syndicate) 2nd in $16,275 M0 Heat at Melton (10/07) *Tasbred The Family Guy (Arthur Taylor) 3rd in $16,275 M0 Heat at Melton (10/07)  Tasbred acceptors this week: *Mister Sumna (Craig and Tania Hayes) in $6,505 C4/C5 at Geelong (16/07 R8 N1) * Tasbred Deliverthegoods (Margaret Burgess, Christine Collings, Ron and Ewan MacDonald, Tony Jeffries and Terry O'Toole) in $16,505 M0 at Melton (17/07 R1 N6) *Ardlussa Express (Ashley and Chloe Williams) in $16,505 M0 at Melton (17/07 R1 N13) *The Family Guy (Arthur Taylor) in $25,275 M0 Final at Melton (17/07 R2 N1) * Tasbred Clamorous (Arthur Wilson Memorial Syndicate) in $25,275 M0 Final at Melton (17/07 R2 N11) * Tasbred El Jays Magic (Lyndon and Gail Menegon) in $17,275 M1/M2 at Melton (17/07 R8 N3) * Tasbred Pachacuti (Lyndon and Simon Dakin) in $21,420 M0 at Menangle (18/07 R1 N1) * Tasbred The Dip (Heather Anderson and Nathan Ford) in $21,420 M0 at Menangle (18/07 R1 N8) *Blue Pointer (Barry Stewart) in $21,420 FFA at Menangle (18/07 R6 N2) *Tasbred Star Chamber (Bianca Heenan, Jake Gillie, Josh Nelson and Nathan Ford) in $21,420 FFA at Menangle (18/07 R6 N2) *Shanghai Knight (Warren Viney) in $6,505 Claimer at Ballarat (18/07 R3 N1) *Livin It Lovin It (Ben Yole and Charles Hookway) in $6,505 Claimer at Ballarat (18/07 R3 N4) *Blacks A Beauty (Bill and Tamra Fawdry) in $6,275 C2/C3 at Ballarat (18/07 R6 N1) Peter Staples  

The Tasmanian based harness racing sire Cardmaster Hanover has had a long hard grind to try to get established in Australia but judging by the results from Hobart yesterday, he is finally rewarding his loyal supporters. Imported from North America in 2005, Cardmaster Hanover stood initially in New South Wales but to say he was poorly patronized would be the understatement of the year. Up until the time he was on sold to Geoff Madden in 2010, Cardmaster Hanover  had produced four crops whose numbers together came to just thirty three live foals. Of those thirty three foals, only nine have faced the starter and four have won but included in those winners was the very smart Dealer 1:53.3 ($105,230) So on his arrival in Tasmania, the fortunes of Cardmaster Hanover were probably at an all time low. His first crop in Tasmania were born in 2011 which are three year olds in the current season and they number thirty seven in total of which fourteen have started and seven have been race winners to date. Not a blazing start but a big improvement on the small numbers he had produced in New South Wales. The second crop by Cardmaster Hanover in Tasmania numbers forty two in total and it is this crop which has made breeders sit up and have another look at the son of Cam's Card Shark. Cardmaster Hanover has produced two high class juveniles this season in Hillview Jake and Chica Bella and they were both at the top of their game last night at Hobart. Chica Bella was too smart even from a bad draw in the $30,000 Evicus Final for fillies while Hillview Jake brushed home in a smart 56.9 to capture the $30,000 Dandy Patch Final for colts and geldings. Chica Bella 1:58.7 ($51,442) is five from nine this season while Hillview Jake 1:57.8 ($49,806) is five from seven in his debut season. Throw in Origin Cronk 2:00.9 ($16,606) and a few other promising types knocking on the door and Cardmaster Hanover has had a season to remember. It will be very interesting to see how breeders react to the performance of his two year olds this season when the next breeding season rolls around. Harnesslink Media

Tasmanian harness racing trainer Paul Hill celebrated his greatest night in racing when his two star juveniles Chica Bella and Hillview Jake won their respective sires stakes finals at UBET Park Hobart on Sunday night. Chica Bella showed her class by crossing from near the outside of the front line and reeled off a slick first quarter while After Lunch faced the breeze in the Evicus Stakes final for fillies over 1609 metres. The pair matched motors to the home turn but that's when driver Ricky Duggan called on Chica Bella for the supreme effort and she responded magnificently. Chica Bella (Cardmaster Hanover-Time Moves On) forged clear and had plenty in hand to defeat outsider Tambros Milly ($101) with After Lunch fading to finish third just ahead of Itz Gemmas delight. She was heavily backed to start the $1.80 favourite ahead of After Lunch that drifted from odds-on to start the second elect at $2.20. The winner clocked a mile rate of 1.58.7 with her first half (800m) run in 58.67. Duggan described the filly as a "dream to drive". "Paul has done a magnificent job with this filly and she has improved just about every time she's been to the races," Duggan said. "She can be a little but cantankerous and try and kick me out of the cart in the score-up but once she's mobile she is a dream to drive." "She's got speed and stamina so if she can improve further next season they are going to have plenty of fun with this filly as a three-year-old," he said. For Hill it was sheer delight and declared it mission accomplished for the well-bred filly that is owned by his wife Julie, his brother Robert and his son Scott who travelled from Western Australia to watch the race. "This filly is tough and while she has a bit of an attitude she is all class and I can hardly wait to see what she does next season as a three-year-old," Hill said. Hillview Jake led throughout from the pole position to win the Dandy Patch final with ace Victorian reinsman Gavin Lang aboard. Hillview Jake went into the final on the back of a second to Origin Cronk in the Dandy Patch Prelude 13 days earlier but the final was another story. Lang had Hillview Jake travelling in his comfort zone and when he let him rip turning for home he sped clear and had plenty in reserve on the line and well clear of Origin Cronk and Riley Major. Hillview Jake clocked a mile rate of two minutes but ran home his last half (800m) in a slick 56.9 seconds. Peter Staples

Harness racing drivers Wade Rattray and Nicholas Brockman share the lead after four rounds of the BOTRA Claiming Novice Driver series. Rattray edged his way to the equal lead with a win aboard Chief Destroyer and a second with Punter Karalta at Devonport last night where the third and fourth heats were held. The first two heats were run at UBET Park Hobart on Sunday night where Allister Woods won his heat aboard No Undies Sundie while Tim Yole emerged from those heats with a win aboard Strezleckie Wildone and a third behind Glamour Art to end the night on 25 points and two clear of Woods who also snared a fourth with Wealthy Warrior. But Monday night's Devonport meeting belonged to Rattray who is attempting to make it successive wins in the popular series. Brockman has yet to drive a winner so his efforts have been consistent to secure a share of the lead. The winner of the series is decided on a point-score basis with 16 points allocated for first, 12 for second, nine for third and seven for fourth and points reduce by one through to last 1oth with six points awarded to any driver who fails to obtain a drive in any heat. The final two heats will be run in Launceston on Friday night. Point scores after four heats. 39 - Nicholas Brockman and Wade Rattray. 37 - Tim Yole. 33 - Lyarna Graham. 32 - Allister Woods. 28 - Lee Simmonds. 24 - Samantha Freeman. 23 - Justin Howlett. 22 - Adrian Collins & Kristy Grant.   Peter Staples

Talented harness racing mare El Jays Magic is likely to head interstate for a campaign that would include a series of races for MO mares at Melton following her impressive win in a free-for-all over 1609 metres at UBET Park Hobart on Sunday night. El Jays Magic sizzled around the Hobart circuit to clock a time of 1m.55.4 seconds to just miss equalling Richie Walton's track record (1.55.3) which was set in May 2008. It was the fastest mile run by a mare on the Hobart circuit since Queen Carey clocked 1.56.3 in a free-for-all on the opening day of the new complex at UBET Park in October 2005. El Jays Magic (JR Mint-Jays Belle) is owned by Lyndon and Gail Menegon who bred the mare at their Big Park Stud. "It was a tremendous effort to win let along run that time," Lyndon Menegon said. "She has always possessed great speed but to cross that field from the outside of the front row as easily as she did was quite brilliant." "Then to almost eclipse Richie Walton's track record also was testament to her ability," he said. The Dip tried to lead from the pole position and he was challenged by Dodgermemate that left El Jays Magic to race three-wide in her attempt to cross down to the pegs. The early battle for the lead didn't seem to affect the mare because she was quite strong at the business end of the race. El Jays Magic sizzled home her last half (800m) in 57.3 to score by over three metres from her stablemate Clamorous with The Tip a further two metres away third. "Grant has been talking about taking El Jays Magic, Clamorous to Melbourne and after this latest win by the mare he's sure to go," Menegon said. Hodges confirmed today that El Jay's Magic and five-year-old Clamorous and possibly two Victorian-bred youngsters will head to Melbourne next week. "I've had a look at the Victorian calendar and there are a few nice race options for El Jays Magic in the coming weeks and there are plenty of suitable races for Clamorous and they both deserve the chance to go over there and win an M0," Hodges said. "I'm looking at taking a couple of other younger horses as well to make it a more financially viable exercise because it costs about v$4000 to take the truck so if I can put more on the truck it is less taxing on the owners. "But I've got a float over there (Melbourne) so if it ends up only being the mare and Clamorous I'll put them on the transport service truck and pick them up over there and float them to where they will be stabled," he said. El Jays Magic is a five-year-old that only began racing in July 2013 and in just under two years she has raced 30 times for 13 wins and a dozen minor placings for about $77,000 in stakes while Clamorous has won 10 and been placed 15 times from 32 starts for $63,000 in prizemoney.

Scottsdale harness racing trainer Wayne Campbell will make a decision on whether to enter his two-year-old gelding Ken Two Stars for next Sunday night's Dandy Patch sires stakes final tomorrow morning following the gelding's impressive win in the Single Again Pace over 1609 metres on Sunday night. Ken Two Stars (Courage Under Fire-Sharevonah) outgunned a small field of four at what was only his second start but it was his tremendous turn of foot that excited driver Grant Hodges to suggest he could measure up against the state's best. Campbell was delighted with the win and even though it was only a small field he was impressed with the way his two-year-old produced two sharp sprints in the run. "We bred this horse and I've always had an opinion of him and on what he did tonight I'm inclined to let him have a crack at the Dandy Patch next week," said owner-trainer-breeder Wayne Campbell. Driver Grant Hodges also was impressed with the speed Ken Two Stars showed during the race. "His first two runs were good and tonight he was well placed to get a win and he never let us down," Hodges said. "He's got a real good turn of foot and to be able to use that twice in the race suggests to me that he could measure up against some of the better ones," he said. Ken Two Stars settled last in the field of four but when the leader Striker Jim (Guy Allen) slowed the tempo Hodges sent his charge around the field to take control. The Barrie Rattray-trained first-starter Kvitova Leis settled third but was the first off the fence to face the breeze and she moved alongside the leader halfway down the back straight the last time. But just when Kvitova Leis looked likely to throw down the gauntlet to the leader Ken Two Stars slipped into another gear and rattled off a last quarter in 27.7 that gave nothing else a chance of overhauling him. Ken Two Stars hit the line 3.3 metres clear of Kvitova Leis with Striker Jim 6-1/2 metres away third while Beena Regal finished last and about 34 metres from the winner after galloping twice in the run.

When well-bred harness racing pacer Boltnmach debuted with a very disappointing performance two years ago to finish over 30 metres from the winner his trainer Justin Campbell was in two minds about continuing with the son of Mach Three. But two years on the gelding has more than paid his way and at UBET Park Hobart last night he notched his sixth win to take his career earnings to almost $50,000. Boltnmach was dropping back sharply in grade having been delivering honest performances in C3-C4 events so Campbell was expecting him to improve dropping back to a C1 event courtesy of a claim for novice driver Adrian Collins. The well-backed Bobby Jo ($4.50) led from gate three and while Boltnmach ($4 into $2.30) was forced to race three-wide for the first 600 metres Collins eventually urged his charge forward to face the breeze. The leader set only a modest tempo so Boltnmach wasn't forced to expend too much energy in the run. When Collins called on his charge to extend near the home turn he sped clear and had enough in hand to stave off a late challenge from Tango Terrific ($10) that failed by a short half-head with Thatswhatshesaid ($5) a closing third. "I was fairly confident he would win tonight because he was dropping back considerably in class and his form going into the race was very good," Campbell said. "He isn't a difficult horse to train but sometimes he can be a bit of a pig on the training track and that was the case this week but usually when he's in that sort of mood at home he races really well so I told a few people to have something on him tonight." "Adrian (Collins) did a good job by letting him roll to the death and I thought the horse toughed it out well when the runner-up came at him," he said. Peter Staples

Star Tasmanian pacer Mister Lennox proved he has lost none of the magic that secured him the Tasmanian Derby earlier this year with an emphatic first-up win in the Ardstraw Pace over 2090 metres at the harness racing meeting at UBET Park Hobart last night. Mister Lennox was having his first start since winning the Derby in March and while he started at the prohibitive odds of $1.30 he endured a tough run to emerge triumphant. With Ricky Duggan aboard, Mister Lennox was taken back to last from his outside front-row draw but when the leader La Ebony Kita (Gareth Rattray) slowed the tempo with a lap to go Duggan sent his charge burning around the field to face the breeze. Duggan was content to allow his charge to race outside of the leader for as long as required but when Belliciouslips (Rodney Ashwood) unleashed a powerful sprint from near last at the 5000-metre peg to join the leaders turning for home. Mister Lennox was in for a battle and Duggan knew it and the pair drew clear of the field to engage in a two-horse war. Mister Lennox was likely to be vulnerable first-up but the Juanita McKenzie-trained three-year-old was up to the challenge and drew clear over the concluding stages to go on and score comfortably from Belliciouslips with outsider Jodila rattling home to grab third. Mister Lennox has won seven of eight starts this season and is the favourite to take out the three-year-old of the year title. Peter Staples

Last season's Devonport Cup and Raider Stakes winner Devendra should be ready to bounce back into the harness racing winner's circle tonight when he fronts up in the Melfield Tyros Free-For-All (race seven) over 1609 metres at UBET Park Hobart. The Barrie Rattray-trained gelding has recently returned from a campaign in New South Wales where he won four at Menangle in the care of James Rattray with his last effort in that state a convincing win in the Group 2 Smoken Up Championship final. He resumed from a spell with a game third in Hobart last Sunday week behind Ardlussa Express and Motu Crusader but that run should have him tuned up for tonight's assignment. The only query is him coming off the outside of the second line but he has early speed and driver Todd Rattray might opt to use that edge to get into the race early. The in-form All I Can Be represents the main danger but he is drawn more awkwardly on the inside of the second row but could end up on the back of the leader if The Dip can lead from the pole position. El Jays Magic is a classy mare that has won her past three impressively but she too has drawn awkwardly on the outside of the front row (gate seven). It promises to be an interesting race with driving tactics likely to play a major hand in the outcome. Former star juvenile Palmisano gets his chance to notch another win when he tackles the Pure Steel Pace in a small field of six. Palmisano's recent form has been far from impressive but should he be able to recapture the a glimmer of the form that he showed as a young horse then he will be the testing material for his rivals. The first of eight races is scheduled to start at 5.52 (AEST) with the last at 9.32. Peter Staples

Veteran Tasmanian harness racing trainer Ian Abraham celebrated his biggest win when his talented three-year-old filly Barooga Minnie scored an emphatic all-the-way win in the $30,000 bandbox final over 2200m at UBET Racing centre in Launceston on Sunday night. Barooga Minnie ($1.70) was sent around the short-price favourite and when she had no trouble leading from her front row barrier the end result was never in doubt. Abraham and his wife Vicky have been breeding standardbreds for a long time and most of their breed have carried the Barooga tag. They had minor success in a few Breeders Stakes series with Barooga Geoffrey and Barooga Jet both placed in Raider Stakes (4YO) finals while Barooga Bullet was second in a Globe Derby (3YO) final. "We've had some good ones placed in sires stakes races but this is our first winner," Abraham aid. "In fact this is our biggest win of any kind by far," he said. With Erin Hollaway in the cart, Barooga Minnie (Mister Big-Barooga Nellie) led comfortably and set a solid tempo before scooting clear of her rivals turning for home. Despite appearing to feel the pinch over the closing stages she held on to defeat the fast-finishing Ark Breeze by a head with Sheas Delight a neck away third. The narrow margin was most likely due to the filly's trait of waiting for her opposition before extending herself. "If she can't see the other horses she wants to stop and look around," Abraham said. "She's better when she can be driven with a sit and that's the way we'll look to drive her in the future," he said. Barooga Minnie will be sent to the spelling paddock this week for a two-month break.     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
