Narrogin Observer - - SPORTS - Matt Young

Har­ness rac­ing took cen­trestage in the even­ing at Nar­ro­gin after an amaz­ing Cox Plate day in Mel­bourne on Satur­day.

Com­pet­i­tive rac­ing was the theme of the meeting with an eight card.

Bun­bury reinswoman AimeeLee Wood landed her first win­ner as a driver on the Stephen Reed­trained five-year-old mare Beach God­dess in race 4.

The daugh­ter of promi­nent South West trainer Vanessa Brock­man, Wood po­si­tioned the out of form mare out­side the hot pot favourite Hoiho and out­stayed it down the straight to win by a nose at $17.

For­mer Kiwi horse Miss Tivoli came from last in race 1 to record a top win in only its third start in WA. Ju­nior driver Michael Blake­more guided the mare to vic­tory sweep­ing the widest out of the turn.

Pin­jarra horse­man, Dean Miller guided Ali­man to vic­tory from bar­rier 1 after de­fy­ing a bet­ting drift. The six-year-old was al­ways on the bit through­out to land a 5m vic­tory.

Ryan Bell guided in-form Rock­n­roll Whitby back into the win­ner’s cir­cle, tak­ing out race 6 on the pro­gram.

South West train­ers Frank Bon­nett and Steve Burton were also suc­cess­ful on the night with San­tanna Cruiser and Phar From Kala­hari, both win­ning at de­cent odds.

The club will open the bot­tom tote from 7am on Tues­day, Novem­ber 6 for Mel­bourne Cup day, as a place to bet on the big race.
