GREAT RESULT WINS AT TAMWORTH

Daniel Morgan had a great result at Tamworth on Sunday night – well it was Great Result that handed him the winner.
The young Hunter Valley reinsman accepted the drive behind Great Result for trainer Craig Clegg and the Bettors Delight-Two Mums eight year old mare produced her fifth win for the season in taking out the Vale N.J. "Billy" Barraclough Pace (1609m).
“She is a nice little sit and sprint horse and did that tonight” said Morgan who also received The Pub sponsored Drive of the Night for his efforts.

DUST OFF THE COBWEBBS

Iownaturbo dusted off the cobwebs for her trainer Alan Goodhand.
Although it was the three year olds fifth career win Goodhand couldn’t establish when his last winner was as a trainer!
“You will have to look in the archives” joked Goodhand with word that it may well have been back in 2005 that he trained his last winner!
Recently retired Goodhand decided it was time to take up the challenge of harness racing once again and what better way than with one that you have bred.
“It feels pretty good. I have retired from work now and just play with the horses. It’s a hobby – we are just having fun and that’s what it’s all about”

IDLE HANDS WINS TAMWORTH MARATHON

Idle Hands is one fit horse – especially after winning the 2730 metre Psarakis Accounting Marathon at Tamworth and the gelding still had plenty in reserve to break the track record.
Trained by Dean Germon at Tamworth it is the first time the six year old has raced over the Marathon distance and with Josh Osborn in the spider clocked 2.02.6 – breaking the race record set by Leighmont back in 2014 with a mile rate of 2.03.10.
“Once he got in the clear I was pretty confident he was going to round them up” said Osborn.

SULLIVAN DOES IT AGAIN

Forbes reinsman Murray Sullivan made the return trip to Tamworth last Thursday and was once again in the winner’s circle – twice in fact!
Sullivan drove a double at the Tamworth meeting two weeks prior and with the prospect of 10 hours travel time for the round trip he certainly wanted to go back home a winner.

EL KAY GRAND GIVES JOY TO OWNER AND TRAINER

"I just like harness racing – it’s a great sport" that is how Henry Campbell summed it up after his mare El Kay Grand had a victory at Tamworth.

Campbell who is domiciled at Tamworth has El Kay Grand in the Mitch Faulkner stables who trains out of Uralla.

"She has got a nice little turn of foot but we haven’t had a good barrier draw to test her out" said Faulkner who handled the Bettors Delight USA-Kayceem Grand mare in the race.

In fact El Kay Grand had her win at the second attempt of running the Rising Star Sam Ison Pace after a fall in the first endeavour saw Ima Toastmasta with James Harding in the spider hit the track and two reinsmen in Tom Ison and Peter Missen being dislodged from their carts.
