Har­ness suc­cess across the re­gion

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Great Western trainer Peter Man­ning was re­warded for mak­ing the long haul north to Echuca with five-yearold mare Re­ciproc­ity when Ja­son Ainsworth reined her to vic­tory in a $5000 con­test for class 4-6 pac­ers.

Af­ter be­ing caught three wide early from gate six at the start of the jour­ney, Re­ciproc­ity raced out­side the leader through­out be­fore dash­ing home in 28.2 sec­onds and a clear mar­gin of 3.4 me­tres at the post.

Re­ciproc­ity started her ca­reer in New Zealand be­fore cross­ing the ditch and win­ning races at New­cas­tle, Al­bion Park and Tam­worth.

The re­cent ad­di­tion to Man­ning’s team has now won two from two af­ter salut­ing at Stawell on cup day.

Bendigo suc­cess

Smart Arm­strong-trained three-yearold geld­ing Im Sir Blake took out a $7000 event at Bendigo on Fri­day night for owner-train­ers Leroy and Danny O’brien.

Ker­ryn Man­ning took the drive on the son of Alta Chris­tiano NZ and the odds-on favourite proved too tough af­ter rac­ing out­side the leader.

Im Sir Blake is now a three-time win­ner from just 11 starts and with five mi­nor plac­ings has earned stakes of $26,530.

Hor­sham win

The Hor­sham sta­ble of Barry and Aaron Dunn notched up a win­ning dou­ble at Mil­dura on Tues­day night with their four-year-old geld­ings Al­ways On and Madazal­ways.

Al­ways On took ad­van­tage of the pole draw to lead all the way over the sprint trip and record his sixth win from 16 out­ings.

Sta­ble­mate Madazal­ways came from two back in the run­ning line at the bell to score by a length and his third ca­reer vic­tory. Aaron bred both horses from his for­mer win­ning race mares Re­gards and Madazhell.

Penny Drops

Promis­ing Stawell owned and trained three-year-old trot­ter The Penny Drops will con­test Satur­day night’s $50,000 Vicbred Home Grown Clas­sic fi­nal at Mel­ton af­ter win­ning a heat on Mon­day night.

The son of colo­nial stal­lion Danny Bouchea is raced by his breed­ers, the Har­vey-hate­ley and Pick­er­ing fam­i­lies and is the win­ner of three races from only four starts.

Trainer Ray Har­vey, driver Neil Mccal­lum and con­nec­tions will be hop­ing for a de­cent mar­ble at the bar­rier draw for Satur­day night’s con­test.
