Trafalgar harness racing trainer Chris Hunter said he was relatively confident going into today's Yarra Valley trots meeting that his mare, Feel The Rhythm, could win if she put her best hoof forward.

She did that, with Chris Alford aboard from the pole, the Elsu-Rhythmaka mare scoring her first ever win at start number 46, leading all the way over 2150m in a mile rate of 2:00.2.

Hunter joined Trots Media's Cody Winnell to chat about the jubilation of Feel The Rhythm's maiden win.

For the trivia buffs, it was the first time Alford has ever driven a free-legged pacer to victory.

Hunter said he took the hobbles off Feel The Rhythm in her races recently and it hade a huge difference.

He's always worked the mare free-legged and clearly she is enjoying the freedom.
