Lane snags dou­ble af­ter fall

Sunday Tasmanian - - Sport -

DAMIAN Lane has bounced back from a fall to claim a Group race dou­ble at Flem­ing­ton in­clud­ing the Group One Makybe Diva Stakes on Hu­mi­dor.

Lane and his mount Lime­stone es­caped in­jury when fall­ing in the fi­nal stages of yes­ter­day’s Dane­hill Stakes be­fore the jockey came out to win the Let’s Elope Stakes and Makybe Diva Stakes in con­sec­u­tive races.

Com­ing from the tail of the field, Hu­mi­dor ($17) scored by 3¼ lengths from the $1.70 favourite Hart­nell with Black Heart Bart ($8.50) a halflength away third.

Lane thought his day may have been over when he crashed with Lime­stone. “For a few mo­ments there I thought I’d def­i­nitely at least be miss­ing the rest of the day,” Lane said. “But I gave it five or 10 min­utes and I felt good to go.”
