Master reinsman Gavin Lang proved to be a ladies’ man by scoring with four females at last night’s Ballarat harness racing meeting.

Driving in vintage form, Lang provided prominent trainer Emma Stewart with a winning quartet – all members of the ‘fairer sex’!

Lang’s evening kicked off with promising youngster Lovelist, which outclassed her rivals in 1:58.5 over 2200 metres.

After leading with ease from barrier two, Lovelist scored by there-and-a-half metres from Union Alley, with Smooth Showgirl a head away third.

By Always A Virgin, the filly is from broodmare gem Lifeline, making her an ‘Aunt’ to another of Lang’s winners, Beauty Secret.

A daughter of Armbro Operative, Beauty Secret is from Secret Life, which is from Lifeline.

Also leading throughout, Beauty Secret accounted for her stablemate, The Good Times and National Service.

Rating 1:57.8 for the 2200 metres, the six-year-old has won five of her last six starts, taking her record to 24 wins and 12 placings from 52 outings.

No stranger to Group One glory, Beauty Secret has been aimed at the Ladyship Mile, which is scheduled to be run at Menangle on March 1 – TAB.com.au Inter Dominion day.

Also bred to be a star, Delight Me did just that with favourite punters when she was untouched to score from Awesome Mattjesty and Thunder Fee.

Unbeaten from four starts this campaign, Delight Me is by Bettors Delight from Group One winner, Cornsilk.

Stewart has set the three-year-old towards various majors, including the New South Wales Oaks, which is also due to be run on Inter Dominion day.

Lang and Stewart rounded out their quartet with Bettors Package, which cruised to an eye-catching victory from Modern Hitch and Bazzas Art.

Successful at four of her five starts for the term, Bettors Package will continue to make her way through the grades ahead of the Vicbred Super Series later in the season.
