Ballarat harness racing trainer Emma Stewart is the on the way to capturing 16 Vicbred Super Series pacing heats for a second year in a row.

She took her tally to 12 on the second of three nights at Kilmore on Thursday.

Her team took out five three-year-old heats to go with seven two-year-old races at Bendigo on Tuesday.

Stewart last season reversed the sequence with five at Bendigo and seven at Kilmore.

She then went on to win four heats for 4yos in Ballarat.

Her stable has 10 runners in six 4yo heats at Bray Raceway on Friday night.

Unfortunately her superstar Poster Boy will be missing after being scratched.

Demon Delight ($6.70) provided the highlight of the night at Kilmore for Stewart when he led home stablemates Hurricane Harley ($4.70) and Centenario ($1.50 favourite) in a heat for colts and geldings.

Demon Delight raced outside leader Centenario, but still drew away.

Stewart's other 3yo heat winners:

- Fourbigmen (driven by Chris Alford) colt

- Two Times Better (Kate Gath) filly

- Kualoa (Chris Alford) filly

- Brevity (Chris Alford) colt

After winning all seven 2yo heats at Bendigo, Stewart kept the sequence running by taking out the first two at Kilmore.

Myrniong trainer Jess Tubbs broke the run with filly Larajay Macray - in a race in which Stewart was not represented.

Other Ballarat district-trained starters through to semi-finals:

Colts and geldings: Hes An Artist (Tim McGuigan, Gordon), Out To Play (Emma Stewart), Hurricane Harley (Emma Stewart), Centenario (Emma Stewart), Perfect Major (Emma Stewart), Foolish Pleasure (Ashleigh Herbertson, Lexton), Always Fast (Emma Stewart)

Fillies: Millah Joy (Jess Tubbs, Myrniong), Mornings (Damien Burns, Bunkers Hill), Looking Fabulous (Emma Stewart), Soundslikeart (Anton Golino), Causing Strife (Wayne Ronan, Glen Park), Fiscal Fantasy (Colin Holloway, Redan), Single Tree Road (Michael Stanley)
