Gippsland trotting trainers have enjoyed a great start to the month, with the prospect of more success at next weekend's Warragul meeting.

There were three local wins at Geelong on June 5 - Drouin West horseman Gary Quinlan won two races with Rocknroll Pearl and Professor Tom, while three-year-old trotter Sovereign Minx scored her maiden win on the same night for Trafalgar trainer Chris Hunter.

At Cranbourne last Thursday night, Warragul horsewoman Jenni Lewis produced Miss Intense to win the final race on the program, while Cranbourne trainer Michael Hughes was also a winner earlier in the night with Bettor Beau.

At Kilmore last Tuesday night Feel The Rhythm backed up her recent good form to score her third victory, giving further success to the Chris Hunter barn.

And at Melton on Wednesday afternoon (today), Gary Quinlan produced another double, with two-year-old Sahara Tiger, and three-year-old Roll With Rocky, which, like stablemate Professor Tom, is raced by local owner Grant Rathjen.

The Sunday, June 24 race meeting at Warragul features the $10,000 Ken Miller Memorial, and the $10,000 Traralgon Pacing Cup, with strong local entries expected in both of these races and the support card.
