Another Jasper (Troy Hillier) after winning at Devonport
KAROOLA trainer Dick Eaves has been enjoying his fair share of success lately and it continued at Devonport on Monday night.

Eaves prepared Another Jasper to score a narrow but impressive win in the SEA FM Stakes for C1 pacers over 2297 metres.

The pace was hot early with Peace Corps and Modern McKenzie both determined to lead with Peace Corps eventually securing the front position while Another Jasper's driver Troy Hillier was content to allow his charge to settle rearward and travel sweetly in his comfort zone.

When Hillier called on Another Jasper to extend in the back straight the last time the gelding responded well and went on to score by a neck from Boutique Art with Bunjil Boy three metres away third.

Another Jasper, owned and bred by Bill Fawdry and his daughter Tamra Fawdry, has won two and been placed three times from his 13 starts this season with both of his wins coming on the Devonport circuit.
