Top harness racing mare New Years Jay won her first trial back on a new campaign today at Oamaru.

A lightly raced ten year old mare by Washington VC, New Years Jay has won eight of her 26 lifetime starts and is being prepared by supreme strike rate trainer Graeme Anderson.

In todays trial she started off a back mark of 40m, but was still too strong at the finish winning narrowly but comfortably in 3:26.0 for the 2600m. 

New Years Jay sprinted her last half in 58.7 in the hands of trainer Graeme Anderson who is putting the polish on her this season.

Anderson, who trains on the beach at Westwood had a great strike rate of 0.4706 last season and is well known for having his horses fit and ready to go first up at the races.

Over the 2017 season his stable won 34 races from 102 starts. His tally was a personal best training on his own accord. He had previously won 35 races in 2011 when training in partnership with Amber Hoffman.

New Years Jay has not raced since winning her last race on the 29th July last year, when she won at Alexandra Park in a 1:54.9 mile rate over 1700m.

On that occasion she was trained out of the Clevedon stable of Barry Purdon.
