Tara shows class for nervous Young

Young needn’t have worried as he drove the former New Zealand juvenile with aplomb.

Drawing the backline, Young settled Class Of Tara midfield in the moving line and was suited by the early speed set up front by Crusader Banner and Kimba Bay.

At the 1100m point, Young took Class Of Tara three-wide and went to the front at the 450m point.

Macon Georgia, who had followed him through the three-wide train, looked to challenge Class Of Tara for a stride or two.

However, Young shook the reins at Class Of Tara and the colt did the rest, running away to win by three lengths.

Owner Gary Elson said Class Of Tara’s win was up there with his WA Derby win with Crombie.

Class of Tara is unbeaten in three WA starts, winning on average by nine-and-a-half lengths.

FOLLOWING a five-month spell, Leda McNally won the Premier Suzuki Kizashi Sport Mares Pace (2130m) for trainer Chris King.

She hit the front 75m from the front and won by more than a length.

SEVEN WISHES made it a treble for Peel region trainers at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

He led throughout to win the Premier Suzuki Capped Price Servicing Qualifying Heat 3 and paid $1.30 on SuperTab.

This is his fourth win from five starts.

PEEL driver Morgan Woodley is on the cusp of an outstanding milestone.

After Saturday night’s Gloucester Park career penalty meeting, Woodley had driven 995 winners and when he drives his 1000th winner, the 24-year-old will be the youngest driver to do so.

He will surpass Gary Hall Jr’s record of driving 1000 winners at 26 in 2009.

Hall Jr broke another record with a winning double behind Hokonui Ben and Bettor Reason at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

This took his tally for the season to 218, bettering Chris Lewis’s record of 21`7 set in the 1994/95 season.
