Gippsland horse Professor Tom won a consolation of the rich Breeders Crown series at the harness racing meeting at Tabcorp Park Melton last Friday night.

Bred and owned by long serving Warragul Harness Racing Club committeeman Grant Rathjen, Professor Tom finished strongly to win.

The two-year-old is trained by Drouin West's Gary and Debbie Quinlan and was driven by Gavin Lang.

Professor Tom is out of the Rathjen family's former brilliant race mare Petes Dream.

On Sunday afternoon another Gippsland bred, Our Waikiki Beach, extended its winning sequence to 12 in capturing the Colts and Geldings Final.

Bred locally by the Fusinato family, and trained and owned in New Zealand, Our Waikiki Beach heads home undefeated in his first season of racing.

Our Waikiki Beach is from the Fusinato's top mare Cyclone Betty.

Pearcedale pacer Hectorjayjay, winner of the Warragul Cup earlier this year, won the Entires and Geldings feature, while Cranbourne horse Cruisin Around ran third in the trotting Colts and Geldings Final.

These and other horses trained in the region look set to produce an exciting future for Gippsland harness racing.
