New Zealand's leading junior driver Brad Williamson is having one of those seasons that just keeps getting better and better.

Week in, week out, Brad is churning out the winners at a great rate and the run he is experiencing is showing no signs of abating.

Today at Winton Racetrack Brad added another three winners to this season's tally and showed why he is so highly rated by a lot of his contemporaries on the track.

"That is the first time I have driven three winners in one day so it was a big thrill especially because I only had four drives on the program," Brad explained when talking to Harnesslink this afternoon

His first winner came in the form of the three year old trotter Sam Galleon who after missing away and settling a long way from the leaders, got over the top of them late in the piece for an impressive victory.

The son of The Pres looked pretty green throughout the run and looks to have plenty of upside going forward.

"He has got a lot to learn but there is no doubting the ability is there."

"He is a half brother to three open class trotters so he is bred to be above average."

"There is a lot of improvement there yet when he learns a bit more ringcraft," Brad said.

Brad's second winner today was the smart Monarchy mare Pyramid Monarch who backed up her impressive second at Addington last Friday night to Harriet Of Mot with an impressive front running victory.

Away brilliantly from her 30 metre handicap to grab the lead after just 400 metres, Pyramid Monarch was never in danger afterwards, coasting down to the line for an easy victory.

It was win number eight for the mare and her fourth this season and took her earnings over the $70,000 mark.

"She is such a lovely mare to drive."

"Her manners are great and she tries so hard every time she goes to the races."

"She is just a little money making machine at the moment and I don't think she is finished yet," Brad said.

Brad's third winner was the four year old Real Desire gelding Dissolution who surprised everybody by sitting parked out the whole journey and still having enough petrol in the tank to scoot away and win easily in the end.

"He is really starting to come into his own this horse."

"Not long ago he wouldn't have been able to do that but he has been a big improver recently and that was a good effort today," Brad said.

Todays wins took Brad's tally for the season to an impressive 41 victories which is 23 ahead of the chasing pack and barring injury he looks to have the New Zealand Junior Driving premiership in the bag with six months of the season still to go.
