It was in Launceston in February 2011 that battling horse trainer Mick Burles and a gelding called The Cleaner began their racetrack journey that was to make its mark on the landscape of the Australian turf. The Cleaner, bought two years earlier at a yearling sale for just $10,000 by three of Burles’ golfing mates when the trainer didn’t have the money himself, finished 13th in a field of 14 maidens. The first-up flop went on to win 19 of his 54 races for Burles and earn more than $1.3 million in prize money. Much loved as battlers in a world of bluebloods, Mick and The Cleaner would garner a cult-like following, with fanfare at a frenzy in 2014 when the horse Mick called Bill became the first Tasmanian-trained runner in the Cox Plate. By the time their partnership ended just over a year (and another run in the Cox Plate) later, the two underdogs were national identities, with some likening the partnership to that of Tommy Woodcock and the legend Phar Lap. In December 2015, Mick’s world was torn apart when the same friends who stepped in to buy the horse when Burles didn’t have “10 grand”, sacked him and removed The Cleaner from the stables he had called home for close to seven years. In Mick and The Cleaner, the remarkable rise of the two unlikely heroes, and all the facts of how and why this pair were split, is exclusively revealed.

ONE of the stalwarts of Tasmania's harness racing industry David Rawlings was honoured last week by being presented with a Meritorious Service Award from Harness Racing Australia. Rawlings, a long term active participant in many aspects of Tasmanian harness racing including ownership, breeding, training, driving and administration, was presented with his award at the Burnie Harness Racing Club's annual general meeting at the BHRC's Wivenhoe Showground complex last Friday night. Rawling's initial involvement in harness racing was in the early 70's when, at approximately 24 years of age, he began shoeing harness horses for prominent North West Coast trainer Jack Rosier. About 12 months later, Rawlings and his brother-in-law Ken Gilliard purchased their first horse, Lager Lad and the gelding was trained by Kim Devlin at Latrobe. Lager Lad won three races and was sold to the USA. Their next purchase was Liza Storm and no one could have imagined what followed. Rawlings obtained a trainer/drivers licence and the 5YO mare won at her first three starts, in the space of 14 days, before being retired to stud due to injury. Rawlings and Gillard went foal for foal and Rawlings ended up with the cream of her offspring. His first was Thorate who was by King Kellanie, a stallion that had been given to David's wife Anne. Thorate was not trained or driven by Rawlings but the stallion was a star of Australian harness racing winning 70 of his 136 race starts and finishing second or third 32 times for $1,329,345 in stakes. Thorate won the 1990 Inter Dominion in Adelaide and many other Grand Circuit races during the five years that he competed at the elite level. In 1990 he was named Australian Horse of The Year by the Australian Harness Racing Council (AHRC). Other prolific winners from Liza Storm were Stormrate (21 wins from 61 starts) and Adorate (14 wins from 44 starts). Liza Storm stands alone as a pacing broodmare in Australian harness racing history. Three times she was awarded the Australian Broodmare of The Year by the AHRC - 1988 (tie with Sally Alla), 1989 and 1990. Other mares have won the award twice but none have completed the treble except the trotting broodmare Maori Miss (1977 - 1979). Rawlings was a trainer-driver from 1975 to 2000. His wins included the 1980 Easter Plate with Rowans Rhythm and nine victories with Tyrolean, including one at Moonee Valley. He was required to hand in his licences when he was elected to the Harness Racing Tasmania (HRT) Board in 2001. He remained on the HRT Board until it was disbanded in 2009 and Tasracing became the new governing body. His stint on the North West Tasmania Light Harness Association committee was for almost 20 years and he was a committee member of the Tasmanian Standardbred Breeders Association for the short time that it existed. He has represented the BHRC at Tasracing Harness Industry Forum meetings since 2009. Rawlings' involvement with the Burnie Harness Racing Club (BHRC) started in 1976 and he remains an active committeeman. While his title has always been 'committeeman' his influence in the growth and innovation of the club is well known throughout Tasmania.   Peter Staples

One of the most impressive winners on the nine-event harness racing program in Tasmania at UBET Park Hobart on Sunday night was the Tommy Jackson-trained Finn Mac Kee (Stonebridge Regal-Scarlett Finn) who led throughout to easily win a C2 event over 1609 metres. It was Finn Mac Kee’s fifth win from only 13 starts but arguably his most impressive. The four-year-old is expected to have one more start in a C-2C3 in Launceston in a couple of weeks before being sent for a spell. “I’ll most likely give him one more start and then spell him but when I bring him back I’ll get him qualified from a standing start because I’d like to aim him at a few of the country cups over the Christmas-New Year period next season,” Jackson said. Finn Mac Kee has been a model of consistency this season winning four and being placed as many times from his 11 starts this time in. “I said early on that this horse could be the best I’ve had and he’s done nothing to change that opinion. “I don’t think he’ll have any problem with qualifying for standing start races and if I’m right he will be very compeitive in a few of the country cups. I’m not saying he’s up to the best but he is improving all the time and he loves to race,” he said. ......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... Veteran Tasmanian harness racing trainer Paul Hill has always had a knack with producing top flight young horses and this season has been no exception with his star filly Playing Arkabella scoring an emphatic win in the $30,000 Evicus Stakes final over 1609 metres at UBET Park Hobart on Sunday night. Hill won the race last year with his filly Chica Bella and while she was impressive throughout her two-year-old season there was as much to like about how Playing Arkabella went about her business in the last major feature juvenile race of the season. With Ricky Duggan aboard, Playing Arkabella ($1.50) was forced to work hard early from her outside front-row draw but eventually she was sent around the field to face the breeze outside of Harshali with the well-tried El jays Mystery on the back of the leader. When Duggan called on his filly for the big effort in the home straight she sped clear and went on to score by over 10 metres from El Jays Mystery ($7.80) with Harshali ($7.70) a short half-head away third. It was the filly’s fourth win from eight starts this season and she filled minor placings at her other four starts with this prizemoney from this latest win taking her career earnings to almost $46,000.. Hill prepared the favourite Rocknroll Turbo in the Dandy patch final but he had to settle for second to the highly promising Usain Jolt, depriving Hill of a record of preparing the winner of the Dandy Patch and Evicus two years in succession as he trained Hillview Jake to win last season's Dandy Patch. ............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................ A Tasmanian harness racing star may have emerged at UBET Park Hobart last night when Usain Jolt, a well-bred two-year-old prepared by astute horseman Tony Petersen, delivered a brilliant performance to win the $30,000 Dandy Patch Stakes over 1609 metres. Usain Jolt (James Austin) went into the race having not won from four previous starts while the favourite Rocknroll Turbo was aiming to keep his unbeaten record intact having won at his only two outings, including an effortless win in the Dandy Patch Prelude two weeks earlier. But Petersen was able to iron out a couple of little problems that were impeding the gelding to race truly and it made all the difference. Harjeet showed brilliant early speed to lead but he was then taken on by the second-favourite Williamtell (Gareth Rattray) that rolled to the front and set a slid tempo while the favourite Rocknroll Turbo faced the breeze. Rocknroll Turbo hung badly throughout the race and that didn’t help his cause but when Ricky Duggan gave Usain Jolt his head racing down the back the last time he loomed as a genuine contender. But when the gelded son of Village Jolt balanced for the run home he powered past the leaders and went on to defeat Rocknroll Turbo by eight metres with a similar margin to Williamtell. “This horse has always shown us good ability but he’s just been a little bit wayward in is action but I sorted that out leading up to this race,” Petersen said. “He is very well bred and his breeding goes back to Chamfer Star and that’s really solid.” Austin was thrilled with the win and predicts a bright future for gelding. “The way this horse ravelled into the race tonight he was never going to lose. Tony has been able to straighten him out and I reckon there’s still plenty of improvement in him,” Austin said. Usain Jolt is owned by Jacinta Webb, Deb Carlton and life partners Tammy Carlton and Sam King. Peter Staples

Harness racing stalwart Peter Cooley has been recognised for his lifetime service to the industry in Tasmanian in the 2016 Queen's Birthday Honours list. Cooley, 79, was awarded the Order Of Australia Medal. Born in Hobart, Peter's father Ken was a leading owner and his grandfather Charles was an owner, trainer, driver, starter and handicapper. He quickly developed a knowledge and understanding of breeding and the history of trotting (harness racing) in Tasmania. He is now regarded as an expert in both areas. From 1973 - 2002, less a period of six years, he served on the various controlling bodies, which included the Tasmanian Trotting Association, Trotting Control Board, Tasmanian Harness Racing Council and Harness Racing Tasmania. During this time he was instrumental in establishing the Tasmanian Sires Stakes Series, the first in Australia, Tasbred Bonuses and mares concessions. Cooley worked diligently for many years to help establish the guidelines for the highly successful Semen Transport Scheme. His club involvement commenced with the Hobart Metropolitan Trotting Club (1960-1976) and his longest period of service has been with the New Norfolk Pacing Club (1969-1995 and 2001-2002). He was a committeeman with the Tasmanian Pacing Club in 1980 and from 1990-1992. Cooley has also had a long-term involvement in Harness Racing journalism. His first article was published in the Australian Trotting Record in 1955 and he contributed items on a weekly basis until 1977. For three years in the 1960's he wrote for the Tasmanian Trotting Review - a monthly published by the Tasmanian Trotting Association. From 1977-1985 he contributed to another monthly - the Australian Trotting Register. He supplied a column for almost every issue of the monthly Tasmanian Harness Racing Gazette from 1981 to 2004. He assisted Ken Dyer with the Stallion Index Book and his work has been published overseas in the New Zealand Trotting Calendar and the United States Harness Horse. In 1990 he published a book that contained the breeding of all horses registered for racing in Tasmania from 1906-1950. In 2008 he compiled the book 'Back To The Trots', which is a history of harness racing in Tasmania. In 2011 he finished compiling a list of all Tasmanian winners from 1900 to 1986. The complete list is available at Cooley won the Australian Harness Racing Council (AHRC) Coulter Award for the Best Historical Article in 1979 and 2001 and Best Book in 2008. He has also received a Meritorious Service Award and a Distinguished Service Award (2002) from the AHRC. He is a Life Member of the New Norfolk Pacing Club and the Tasmanian Pacing Club and was awarded the prestigious Edgar Tatlow Medal in 2002 for his outstanding contribution to Tasmanian harness racing. He bred and raced many horses with Regal Gail being his best. Cooley was the driving force behind the establishment of the Tasracing Harness Hall Of Fame and was an inaugural inductee in 2014.

One of Tasmania's most popular harness racing protagonists Chester Bullock was this week honoured for his service to the industry. A long term active participant in many aspects of Tasmanian harness racing including ownership, breeding, training, and administration and sponsorship has been honoured with a Distinguished Service Award from Harness Racing Australia (HRA). Bullock was born at St Marys in 1948. His father, Keith (Cardinal), was the St Marys Trotting Club Treasurer and his mother, Doris, loved to have a small wager on horse racing. With that background, Bullock quickly developed a passion for racehorses. He spent much of his youth at St Marys at the harness stables of Linton Bullock and Eric Bean. Bullock moved to Launceston when he was 16 years of age. His first purchase was a harness yearling, Thunder Fame, which eventually won two races in 1984 when trained by Eric Bean. Bullock acquired more mares, yearlings and racehorses and in 1986 decided to buy some land at Riverside to accommodate his rapidly expanding harness operation. A 1,100 metre track was constructed on the flats adjoining the Tamar River, where Jack Stamford previously trained, and the first of many prominent trainers took up residence at the Bullock training establishment. David Angus was the initial trainer and Mark Stanley, Rohan Hadley, James Rattray, Todd Rattray, Sam Freeman and Tim Yole all had stints training from the Bullock property. Bullock acquired his training license in 1990 and has prepared many winners from the complex. They include Cardinal Nelson (10 wins) and Cardinal Tucker (7 wins). Another, Cardinal Phoenix, showed enormous potential at his only race start as a two year old defeating Prodigious (2001 Tasmanian Pacing) Championship and Mountain Glory (Dual Tasmanian Horse Of The Year). Bullock is training approximately 15 horses at present with assistance from Duncan Dornauf, Wade Rattray and his daughter Julia Bullock and son-in-law Ryan Wilkinson. In 1998, Bullock and his daughter Julia established an AI Breeding Station at the Riverside property. Since then, Fred and Pauline Barker, Trevor Leis, Doug McKillop, Lloyd Whish-Wilson, Rick and Naomi Hinds and Dennis Mahoney have been some of the many prominent Tasmanian breeders who have used the facility. Bullock has also had a significant role in racing administration. It commenced at the Launceston Pacing Club (LPC) at Elphin in 1984. Three years later he resigned from the committee while he filled the position of Project Manager for the new Mowbray Racing Complex including the 1,000 metre harness track. He returned to the LPC committee in 2000 until the present day and has recently been appointed President. He is also the current Patron of the LPC as well as Patron of the Carrick Park Pacing Club. He joined the Northern Tasmanian Light Harness Association in 1995 where he has served 21 years as President. In 2006, he joined a group of participants to establish the Tasmanian division of the Breeders, Owners, Trainers and Reinspersons Association (BOTRA) and he was immediately elected President and served seven years in the role. Since 2009, Bullock has represented the LPC and/or NTLHA at the quarterly Tasracing Harness Industry Forum meetings and he is also a member of the Tasracing Harness Yearling Sale Working Group. Bullock, through his company Bullock Consulting (now 6tyo), has been one of the major harness sponsors in Tasmania over the last 16 years. His sponsorship has extended to all clubs in North and North West Tasmania with some of his more prominent exposure being through the Bullock Consulting Youngbloods series (16 years), the Bullock Consulting Bandbox at Launceston (21 years), the Bullock Consulting Devonport Cup, the Bullock Consulting Burnie Cup, the Bullock Consulting Country Guineas (St Marys) and many other races and the Fashions of the Field (Scottsdale and Burnie).

Talented open class pacer Resurgent Spirit delivered arguably his best effort of the season when he powered his way to victory in the $10,000 Metropolitan Cup over 2579 metres at UBET Park Hobart on Sunday night. Resurgent Spirit was coming off a game second to Riverboat jasper in the $40,000 Harness Racing's Group 3 Easter Cup two weeks earlier but despite such outstanding form he was sent around at the lucrative price of $3.80 in a more suitable mobile event. Vande Velde showed good early speed to lead from the pole position but when driver James Austin sent Resurgent Spirit around the field to have a look for the lead Vande Velde's trainer-driver Christian Salter obliged to take the trail. The well-backed favourite Pachacuti ($2.50) settled near the rear in the one-out line from his wide second-row draw but when he was called on to improve in the back straight the last time he failed to improve. But when Austin released the reins nearing the home turn the Roger Whitmore-trained five-year-old gelding sped clear and had no trouble fending off his rivals in the home straight. Resurgent Spirit went on to score by over seven metres from Mister Lennox that ran on gamely after enjoying the one-out-one-back sit with Crusader Acey a close-up third. Melolyn ran on well but could have finished closer had he not been shut away three and four-back the fence for most of the race. It was Resurgent Spirit's fifth win from 12 starts this season with his only blemish coming in the Hobart Pacing Cup in January when ninth in a field of 12 but other than that he has won or been placed in 10 of his other 11 starts and finished no further back that fourth. The American Ideal gelding has amassed career prizemoney of $164,106 from his 41 starts courtesy of 23 wins and 10 minor placings. Peter Staples

Veteran harness racing trainer Neil Cameron was rewarded for his patience when Liberty Niadh scored a courageous win on debut a The TOTE Racing Centre in Launceston on Sunday night. With experienced reinsman Rohan Hillier in the sulky, the well bred juvenile proved too strong for race favourite House Haunter ($2.70) and his stablemate Feral Tracy in the Launceston Belmont (1680m), which was the feature race on the mammoth 11-race card. It was a game win as the filly faced the breeze for the last 600 metres but had the stamina and will to eventually forge to the lead and defeat the favourite by eight metres with Feral Tracy 1.8 metres away third and just in advance of her stablemate Freyde hat lost valuable ground when she galloped for a few strides nearing the home turn. Cameron had the filly ready to race early in the season but had to abort the campaign due to illness. "She was probably the first two-year-old to trial back in October last year but she developed a respiratory infection so I couldn't go on with her," Cameron said. Liberty Niadh trialed brilliantly a week prior to her first race assignment and that gave connections and punters cause to back her in from $4.50 to start the $3.20 second favourite "We just had to be patient and we have been rewarded." Cameron explained that Liberty Niadh is the result of a purchase he made about five years ago. "I bought this filly's mother Maggie Adreaming down from Queensland with the intention of racing her," he said. "But she'd had E I (Equine Influenza) and, when I got her stated, I could pick something was wrong." "So I had her checked out and discovered she had a problem with her heart that had been cause by the E I." "So I opted to breed wit her and Liberty Niadh is her first foal," he said. Cameron is unsure about her immediate future. "I've got nothing special planned for her but we might take her to Hobart next Sunday night." "I'll wait and see how she comes through this race and make a decision later in the week," he said. Peter Staples

Well bred three-year-old pacer Karalta Dazzler is starting to live up to his name with his latest harness racing win in Launceston tonight, the gelding's third in succession. With regular driver John Walters in the sulky, Karalta Dazzler stepped well from the standing start and gradually worked his way to the lead down the back straight clear of Prettyboytroy that was eased out of the speed battle. Walters ensured a solid tempo and when he asked the gelding for the big effort at the top of the home straight he quickly established an unbeatable led and went on to comfortably score from Margin Girl with Helen Wheels working home well for third ahead of On The Deuce. Karalta Dazzler is trained by Kent Rattray who prepares the gelding for his parents Wayne and Gaye who bred him from their broodmare Karalta Crown that produced the gelding from an AI mating with Stonebridge Regal. It was the second leg of an early double for Walters who also guided the Ian Abraham-trained Vincent Can Go to victory in the opening race on the 11-event card. Listen to what driver John Walters had to say about Karalta Dazzler's latest win. Peter Staples

STOWPORT harness trainer Andrew Rawlings has always believed his five-year-old pacer Johnnyart had another win in him and at Carrick Paceway in the North of the state today the gelding celebrated his second career win. With experienced reinsman Rohan Hillier in the cart, Johnnyart showed good early speed to lead from barrier two and held the lead comfortably to the home turn. However, he was clearly headed by Im Shouting (Todd Rattray) in the home straight and that horse looked set to win the Trevor Mazzone Memorial over 1670 metres. But Johnnyart showed great courage to fight back, regain the lead and go on and score by a long neck from Im Shouting with Almondine Gem (Brent Parish) over three metres away third. Johnnyart had won only one race from 31 starts but he had notched seven minor placings that have at least helped pay the training fees. The Trevor Mazzone Memorial was the second race on card of what was the club’s centenary meeting. The Carrick club opted to forego staging the meeting on a Friday with Sky coverage instead opting to run the meeting on a Saturday with on-course Tote facilities only and with no statewide broadcast of the events.

IT didn’t take long for talented Tasmanian harness racing trainer-driver Kate McLeod and her business partner Daniel Hill to get a return on their most recent investment. Rampling, a former Victorian pacer, was having his third start for McLeod when he delivered the goods in the Boags Premium Stakes over 2200 metres at The TOTE Racing Centre in Launceston on Sunday night. McLeod and Hill purchased Rampling for only $1500 but they took a big punt as the gelding’s form was not encouraging, to say the least. “He’d only had three starts and hadn’t done much at all but he was being prepared by a hobby trainer who said he had just been playing around with him,” McLeod said. “I thought if that’s the case I might be able to improve him.” Rampling never disgraced himself at his Tasmania debut, finishing second to Miley Rose but he finished well back at his only other outing in a race won by Doyouseewhatisee. “He was still underdone last time but tonight he put it all together,” she said. This time McLeod decided to see what the gelding was made of, evidenced by her driving tactics. She sent Rampling out after the leader and favourite Springfield Tattoo 650 metres from home and 200 metres later Rampling was in front and going strong at the top of the home straight.  While he was starting to tire close to home he still held a comfortable margin on the line defeating Divas Delight and Cardinal Eddy with Springfield Tattoo fading to finish fourth.  McLeod found Rampling advertised on the Internet.

Tasmania boasts a wealth of talented young harness racing drivers with many coming from families with a strong background in the sport. Dylan Ford is one who falls into that category and he had a night to remember at Tattersall’s Park in Hobart on Sunday night. Ford snared with four winners on the nine-race program and three of those were results of gun drives. His first came courtesy of the Michael Laugher-trained The Pix that powered home to score by a metre in the Tattsbet 2YO Pace over 1609 metres. The last three races belonged to Ford, winning aboard Aim Aloof for Zeke Slater to give that trainer a double, Delightful Lilly for his cousin Nathan Ford and he capped his best night by guiding Belliciouslips to victory in the Cardmaster Hanover 2YO Pace over 2090 metres. It was a brilliant display by Ford who is the son of Phillip Ford and a nephew of ace reinsman Scott Ford who are both unfortunately sidelined through disqualification. Dylan has always shown above average ability in the sulky and given his strike rate he will outdrive his claim in no time. Peter Staples  

Well travelled pacer Jilliby Rio found a new lease on life when he landed in Tasmania four years ago and while his wins have been well spaced his recent form suggests he may still have plenty to give in the right type of races. In Hobart last Sunday night he produced a powerful finish to grab victory in the shadows of the post in a C4-C6 event over 2090 metres. It was the 11-year-old’s fourth win since joining the Chris Howlett stable in December 2011 but he has managed to earn prizemoney from 18 of his 36 starts for Howlett. Jilliby Rio is part-owned by Paul and Elizabeth Geard who are the trainer’s parents-in-law. The gelding did everything right on Sunday night with talented young reinsman Matthew Howlett aboard. “We were three-wide for most of the last lap but he always felt like he was going to win,” the teenage driver said. The trainer said Jilliby Rio is a pleasure to have in the stable. “The horse tries hard every time he goes around and you can’t ask for more,” Chris Howlett said. Jilliby Rio began his career in Victoria where he raced unsuccessfully as a two-year-old and he was three before he won for the first time with Kerryn Manning in the sulky. He contested the Breeders Crown series in 2005 after which he was spelled. At his next campaign he won his way through the classes and as a five-year-old he won the $20,000 The Stampede listed classic final at Moonee Valley. Jilliby Rio had a stint in NSW before making his way to Tasmania in July 2009. Brighton mentor Eric Jacobson trained Jilliby Rio when he first came to Tasmania and the gelding won for him at his first start in the state with another win and a handful of minor placings following in quick succession. He won two more times for Jacobson before ending up in Howlett’s care. “Jilliby Rio suffered a foot injury but when he was almost recovered we had a horse Pure Wish that needed to be trained with other horses and as I only had one or two in work the owners suggested the horses swap stables and that’s how we came to get Jilliby Rio,” Howlett said.

Well bred two-year-old harness racing filly Nobeer Nofear ended her season on a winning note when she powered home to win the $30,000 Evicus Stakes final over 2090 metres at Tattersall's Park in Hobart on Sunday night.

Star Tasmanian two-year-old pacer Resurgent Spirit ended his season undefeated from eight starts when he powerd his way to a brilliant harness racing win in the Dandy Patch final over 2090 metres at Tattersall's Park in Hobart tonight (Sunday).

Recent 2YO Sweepstakes winner Sweet Pea Jasper tuned up for her final feature race assault with an impressive all the way win in a heat of the $30,000 Evicus Stakes over 2090 metres at Tattersall's Park in Hobart last Sunday night.
