ON THE TROT

-

OUT­STAND­ING young reins­man Jason Lee will take plenty of mem­o­ries on to the track when Jilliby Jit­ter­bug tack­les the Tat­low Stakes for ju­ve­nile fil­lies at Mel­ton’s Tab­corp Park tonight.

The last time Jilliby Jit­ter­bug raced, she won the Aus­tralian Pac­ing Gold fi­nal and Lee’s nan, Alice, was there to celebrate a trea­sured fam­ily suc­cess.

Sadly, Alice died last week, but Lee will take his pas­sion for har­ness rac­ing out with him as he searches for more fea­tur­erace suc­cess.

De­spite her im­pres­sive record of three wins from four starts, Jilliby Jit­ter­bug is only sec­ond favourite tonight — be­hind tal­ented filly Rock­n­roll Magic.

Lee will also part­ner Keayang Ebonyrose in the Har­ness Breed­ers Vic­to­ria Three-Year-Old Clas­sic and Re­gal Ma­jor in the ju­ve­nile boys’ Tat­low Stakes.
