All-conquering Tasmanian harness racing trainer Ben Yole has kicked off a three-month campaign on the mainland in the best possible way. Three minor placings in the country, then a close-up metropolitan fourth certainly put "the writing on the wall" that the Yole team meant business. So, it was no surprise to see the visitor post a winning double at Cranbourne last Sunday night. "It was the perfect way to get things underway - let's just hope it continues," Yole said. "We have 18 horses that will campaign in Victoria. That leaves about 40 at home," he said. "At this stage the plan is to spend about three months racing over there. Of course, that could blow out - we'll just see how we shape up and take it from there." The Yole stable has been going gangbusters in recent years. This is the fourth consecutive season they have topped the 100 mark with winners. And the 2018-19 season has been a standout, eclipsing the previous Tasmanian record for most wins in a season. They are currently sitting on an amazing 174 victories. Ben Yole                                                             (Courtesy Stacey Lear Photography) Yole said his younger brother Tim and their Tasmanian-based driver Conor Crook would be looking after the campaign horses. "I've been flying over backwards and forwards a few times and I realize that's the way it's going to be. We are based at the Wahring stables of Paul and Rosie Weidenbach. They're fantastic and their place is great," he said. The Cranbourne winners were aptly named in Ready To Fire and Good Feelings....surely presenting omen bets for followers of the Yole team! Five-year-old mare Ready To Fire (Somebeachsomewhere-Fight Fire With Fire (Artiscape USA) took out the SBG Accountants and Business Advisors Pace at the juicy odds of $23 for driver Greg Sugars. The second leg of the double saw young Ballarat concession reinsman Darby McGuigan (who could win on a rocking horse at the moment) get home on Good Feelings (Mr Feelgood-Good Lookin Girl (Perfect Art USA) in the Hygain Pace at $3.70. Yole said that while stable reinsman Conor Crook would be used regularly, he also planned to engage other notable senior drivers when they were available. Conor Crook and Tim Yole with their recent Victorian winners So far, he has enlisted the likes of Sugars, McGuigan, Chris Svanosio, James Herbertson, Kima Frenning and Kevin Weidenbach Jnr. Despite living on the 'Apple Isle' for the past 12 years after shifting from Hamilton in Victoria, Yole has only been a full-time trainer for the past four years. "When we first came across, myself and my brothers Mark and Tim all had full-time work. We used to squeeze our horses in around our jobs. We had probably a dozen horses then, although sometimes it got up to 20," Ben said. "Now it's just all horses and our dad Wayne, who is retired, helps us out on a part-time basis which is great," he said. "We are up and going at 6am and aim to have the team all done by 12 noon. Where we are is similar weather to Hamilton, although it does get awfully wet for maybe three weeks in winter." The logistics of running the massive Yole operation are hard to comprehend. "There are races every week and we usually have big numbers going around," Yole said. "Sometimes it could be 30 or 40 or more at a meeting. We own four trucks which on average carry nine horses each so that's how we get them there. "Each horse has its own gear and individual race day bag but it's a big job cleaning all the harness - and one I tend to avoid if possible!" Somewhere in between all the work, Yole insists he still manages to find family time to relax. His wife Catherine is a schoolteacher, and they have a four-year-old son Hudson and another baby on the way. Yole said as a youngster, the legendary Barker family, Jim and Rod, first got him into horses through the pony trots. "From there I learnt a lot from Kevin Brough and his son Adam, who were very astute trainers," he said. "Looking back, I now realize how professional Adam was in the way he went about things. He certainly taught me the benefits of all the one-percenters. "After all the horses were finished, Adam wasn't. He'd be off rubbing joints or attending to other things that a lot of other trainers mightn't bother with." The Yole training complex is on 50 acres with an 800m fastwork track, swimming pool and plenty of grazing paddocks. "We also have a bush property with several different circuits. This, and going to the beach, which is 15 minutes away, aims to break up the same day-in, day-out training regimes," he said. And while their massive raceday numbers seem positively scary to outsiders, the Yole stable is always on the lookout for more horses from the mainland. "The aim is to keep turning them over and enjoy the sport - and we all certainly love being involved in harness racing and getting winners that's for sure."   Terry Gange NewsAlert PR Mildura

Leading trainer Ben Yole rewrote the record books when he broke the record for the most number of wins in a season by a Tasmanian trainer in Launceston on Friday evening. That wasn’t the only record broken last weekend with the age record for three-year-old’s in Hobart on Sunday was also rewritten. This week the $12,000 Golden Mile in Launceston is the feature race of the weekend and is a part of an 8-race card on Sunday at the TAB Racing Centre Mowbray in Launceston, while the Tasmanian Trotting Club will stage a 6-race program on Friday evening. The Stars Ben Yole – the state’s leading trainer prepared seven winners last week to take his season total to 128 wins and 281 placings from a staggering 1857 starters. Yole has prepared 124 winners the past two seasons which has been the most number of wins by a trainer in the state until he smashed that record with three and half months remaining for the current season in Launceston on Friday night with Jeans Mattjesty being the successful horse to rewrite the record books. Spoilt Sport - it’s hard to believe this filly hadn’t won a race this season from her four starts prior to her win in Hobart on Sunday. But she was able to race up to her brilliant form that she had shown prior when she was a runaway winner on Sunday by 16.8 metres, Spoilt Sport recorded a time of 1m 56.6s for the 1609-metre journey which broke the previous age record in Hobart for that distance which was held by Scooterwillrev when he won at the venue on August 6, 2017. The Rodney Ashwood-trained filly is the $2.90 second favourite for next month's Group 2 Bandbox Stakes in Launceston. Redason - another runner from the in-form Rodney Ashwood stable who continued his good record this season when he made it back-to-back wins in Hobart. The gelded son of Majestic Son has won four of his 12 starts this season with a further seven placings to his credit. I Wanna Rock - continues to re-pay his trainer, driver, owner and breeder Sam Rawnsley for his perseverance with the injury-plagued six-year-old gelding who won his fifth race on Sunday at only his eighth race start. Izaha – remains on track for the Group 2 Raider Stakes in Devonport in mid-June when he recorded his fifth win of the season in the Pace Financial Services Discretionary Handicap on Sunday night.

Trial File Devonport - Monday evening  Three trials were held on a rain-affected track on Monday evening. The quickest winning mile rate of 2m 5.0s was recorded by unraced three-year-old Muchison in a 3C0 and better trial. The John Castles-trained pacer scored by a half metre with his nephew Charlie taking the reins on the three-year-old gelding who is by Blissfull Hall and is out of the Thorate mare Gypsy Byrd. Recording a time of 2m 26.9s for the 1930-metre trip, Muchison defeated open class pacer Exciteusinthecity and trotter Ten Caisses. Remaining trials were won by Goggo Gee Gee (2m 10.2s) and Pushkin (2m 14.9s) Week Ahead The state’s junior driver ranks have been bolstered with two concession drivers to call Tasmania home. Victorian reinswoman Olivia Weidenbach has been a regular fly-in driver in recent weeks and has now relocated to the state to take up a position with the Ben Yole stable, while Ben Woodsford will arrive in the state today (Thursday). Woodsford has been doing his recent driving in Queensland and has won 34 races, including two metropolitan wins from 139 drives since his first race drive in May 2016. The Queenslander has taken up a position with trainer Gavin Kelly who is currently expanding his team after gaining on track stables at the Brighton Training Centre. Both drivers will have their talents on show at the 6-race card in Hobart on Friday night that kicks off at 16:56. In Launceston on Sunday evening talented six-year-old Ryley Major will be looking to make it a double in the Launceston Pacing Club’s two premier sprint races. The Rohan Hillier-trained and driven pacer won the Launceston Mile four starts ago where he showed brilliant gate speed to lead from barrier seven and recorded a mile rate of 1m 56.7s for the 1680-metre journey on a rain-effected track. The other premier sprint race in Launceston is this Sunday’s $12,000 Bevan Lee’s Butchery Golden Mile. The gelded son of Art Major has a best winning mile rate of 1m 54.6s which he recorded at Melton five starts ago, and he bounced back into the winner's circle in the Degree C Quality last start which is the premier sprint race at the Devonport Showgrounds. He looks extremely well placed on Sunday night to record his fifth win of the season. The last horse to win the Launceston Mile - Golden Mile double was Greysteel in 2013, this year’s Golden Mile is race six on the card and is set down for 19:39 with the opening race scheduled to start at 17:04. Interstate this weekend we see; Menangle - Saturday night Race 7 Horse 7 Rykov Leis - Tasbred and owned. Melton - Saturday night Race 2 Horse 9 No Apachemee - Tasmanian owned, Race 3 Horse 9 War Dan Delight - part-owned by Tasmanian interest and Race 5 Horse 11 Isaac - Tasmanian owned.   Duncan Dornauf for Tasracing

Young reinswoman Olivia Weidenbach (pictured) has made the move to Tasmania for a plum gig with the Ben Yole stable. With 65 horses in work, the Yole camp offers Weidenbach an enormous opportunity for hands-on experience at the stables and the races. Ben Yole’s stable foreman, and his dad, Wayne Yole said Weidenbach, 17, would “be a magnificent asset to the stable”. “She has a claim, which is great because we have a shortage of claim drivers,” he said. “She’ll come over here and be tutored by Mark (Yole) on the driving side of things and Ben about training. She is a very good horse person for someone so young at just 17. Of course she comes from such a strong harness racing family, with her mother being a Mifsud.” Weidenbach drove her first winner in February, when she piloted Smart Little Shard to victory at her maiden drive. Ben Yole is Tasmania’s leading trainer with 121 wins from 1789 starts so far this season. Weidenbach has four drives tomorrow night at Launceston – The Lemondrop Kid in Race 2, Give Me The Knight in Race 4, Guys Bettor Bet in Race 5 and Another Swinger in Race 8. Wayne Yole, a former Hamilton Harness Racing Club President, is now the Harness Racing and Special Projects Coordinator for Racing Tasmania.   Cody Winnell for Trots media

There were seven races decided on Friday night in Launceston with training and driving honours shared with a multiple winner no where in sight. Ben Yole and Rohan Hillier were in action early, sharing success in the Chartley Estate Stakes with the consistent Punchinello. “We sat without cover early but weren’t forced to work and then when Troy (McDonald) came round us at the 1200-metres on the favourite Good Feeling we had cover right up until the home turn and Puncinello finished off strongly,” said Rohan. “He’s been consistent without winning out of turn so it was good to see him rewarded with a powerful victory.” Iden Forest (pictured) ran right up to his last start third to Drillittobits with a runaway 16.9-metre victory after leading all the  way over 2200-metres in the Crown Lager Pace for Christopher and Matty Howlett. The longer the race went the stronger Iden Forest travelled and when Matthew clicked up the four-year-old turning for home he dashed clear for an impressive win. Beam Me Up Chopper, trained and driven by Kate MacLeod, put punters back on track in race three the Carlton Draught Stakes. “We got away well from the second row and settled just worse than midfield, I found the back of Alaphilppe which is where I wanted to be,” said Kate. “Rohan (Hadley) made his move out three-wide at the 800-metre mark and we latched on until the 400-metre pole where I hooked him out four-wide and he was able to round them up comfortably for a soft win.” Real Diamond made it back-to-back wins for Rod Ashwood when steered to victory by Gareth Rattray in the Lees Orchard Stakes. “It was a top performance by Real Diamond, he showed good speed to hold the challenges out early and then when Rowley joined him at the 400-metre pole Gareth just sat there quietly and kept some in reserve for the late surge from Courageous Katee,” said Rod. “That’s his fourth win and his second straight for us in a fortnight, he’s by Western Ideal from Jadah Rose so there may be another win or two in him yet.” El Jays Monet put punters back on the ropes in the Nichols Sound & Communications Stakeswith a courageous all the way win for Sally Stingel and Ricky Duggan. The seven-year-old gelding crossed from the four gate heading in to first turn and fought on like a caged lion when the challenges came left right and centre in the home stretch. Bianca Heenan and Hannah VanDongen kept their successful season rolling with Jeans Mattjesty pulling out three-wide at the bell in the Roberts Equine Supplies Claimer before surging clear in the straight for a 4.5 metre win. The Todd Rattray trained and driven Kadar turned the tables on Watchmylips to take the prize at double figure odds in the Bevan Lee Butchery Two-Year-Old. Rattray rated Kadar to perfection on top and although Watchmylips rattled home coming from last into the stretch Kadar had a length up its sleeve on the post. Watch Beam Me Up Chopper score a powerful victory in the Carlton Draught Stakes over 2200-metres on Friday night in Launceston.   Shane Yates

Easter Cup heat night once again had plenty of action on and off the track in Launceston on Friday. A power issue off track caused a lengthy delay with credit to the Office of Racing Integrity stewards and participants for ensuring the meeting was able to proceed after a 90-minute delay. On the track, it was a great night of racing with Gavin Lang dominating the night in the sulky with a treble, including a heat of the Easter Cup with Franco Tristan. The other heat of the cup was won by Illegal Immigrant who came home well to win courtesy of a well-timed drive by Troy Hillier. Ben Yole extended his lead on the state’s trainers’ premierships with a treble in Devonport on Sunday. This week we see the first ever harness race meeting in Australia on Good Friday when the Tasmanian Trotting Club plays host to the tier two meeting of the week before the Launceston Pacing Club conduct their premier night of racing on Saturday, featuring the Group 2 Dakin Refrigeration Easter Cup. The Stars Gavin Lang - produced three excellent drives to put on the tape to be played at the junior driver's school when he won the first three races on the Launceston card. The main purpose of Lang’s Launceston mission was to qualify Franco Tristan for Saturday night’s Group 2 Easter Cup, and the six-year-old gelding was the first horse to qualify for the final with an effortless win in the opening heat when he scored by four-metres over Scooterwillrev and The Aussie. Lang also trained and drove Castle Retreat to victory as well as driving Art Frenzy to his third win of the season. Illegal Immigrant - caused a minor upset when he stormed home late to defeat Ryley Major by 1.9 metres in Heat Two of the Easter Cup. Trainer-driver Troy Hillier settled the American Ideal gelding three-back along with the marker pegs and was able to be driven conservatively off a solid tempo that saw the last three quarters all run in under 30 seconds, Illegal Immigrant had too much speed late to record his fifth win of the season. Kohanah - “I think he’s pretty good,” was the quote from his trainer-driver Todd Rattray after the son of Sweet Lou took out the Launceston Pacing Club Golden Slipper. Kohanah flew home in the final 100 metres to pick up the short-priced favourite Topzavski to record his second win at only his third race start. The colt is the first foal out of the Bettors Delight mare Benediction. War Dan Delight - Victorian-trained pacer who looked a class above his rivals on paper in the C0 Pace and he won accordingly. Driver Greg Sugars was forced to do a little bit of work when finding the spot outside the leader in the middle stages of the race, the Dean Braun-trained colt wasn’t out of second gear when winning by 9.8 metres. Black Ops - after finishing in the second spot of five consecutive occasions the Ben Yole-trained pacer is now finding the winning post first winning three of his last four outings, including wins in Launceston on Friday evening and again in Devonport on Sunday night.

Trial File Carrick Park - Saturday morning The Melissa Maine trained two-year-old Better Amour recorded the quickest winning mile rate of the four trials conducted when she recorded 2m 7.0s for the 1670-metre distance. Driver Gareth Rattray positioned the daughter of Betterthancheddar behind the leader at the bell before defeating He Got Rocked by one metre with the early leader Badrick a further metre away in third position. Other winners at the trial session included; Its All Bliss (2m 21.1s), Sermac (2m 9.6s) and Levi Jimmy (2m 13.2s). Hobart - Monday evening Tasmanian Derby runner up, Resurgent Storm recorded the fastest winning mile rate of the session in Hobart when the Betterthancheddar colt ran a mile rate of 2m 1.6s. From barrier two driver Zeke Slater had the Roger Whitmore-trained pacer behind the leader at the bell and was able to hold off handy three-year-old filly Still Hungover by one metre, with the third place getter Dee Bee Bobby 99 metres away in third placing. The last two quarters were recorded in 30.8s and 28.5s. Remaining trials were won by; Finn Mac Kee (2m 3.9s), Sweetimnot (2m 3.6s), Brystabella (2m 6.2s) and Dasher Houli (2m 6.7s). Week Ahead Star Tasmanian Pacer Ignatius is back at the track on Thursday night when he lines up in the Group 2 Renshaw Cup at Penrith.

Ben Yole cranked up his bid to smash his own state training record of 124 wins by successfully preparing 50% of the 6-race card in Devonport on Sunday night, taking his 2018/2019 tally to 111. The Sidmouth trainer snared three winners, Black Ops (pictured - No 6) backed up from its outstanding victory in Launceston on Friday night, Ready To Fire and Blacklist, on debut in the state. "Black Ops has a new lease of life, we have just bought another property with areas of bush on it and we've been working him up through there, he has already won three races in April and we are only half way through the month," said Ben. "His win on Friday night was tremendous, he found the front with good gate speed and Troy (McDonald) rated him well from there, the tempo lifted in the third quarter running 29.3 seconds and he was pulling hard but when Troy went for him at the top of the home stretch he still had enough in the tank to hold them off." Black Ops drew poorly outside the front line in Devonport in the John McKenna Race Night Vet Pace over 2297 metres. "Troy had no option but to ease back at the start and he was able to find cover just worse than midfield before hooking three-wide going down the back a lap and a half out, Troy has a good feel for him and they sat three wide to the 400 before finding the death and hitting the front turning for home, he doesn't respond to the persuader so Troy just had to urge him to the line and he got home by half-neck," Yole said. "Ready to Fire scored a soft win for Samantha Gangell, she found the one-out one-back position and cruised up to them in the home straight and Blacklistshowed early speed to lead and raced home to score impressively by six metres." Kent Rattray and John Walters continued their winning run with Karalta Moondance winning the first after coming in for solid support, Yodellin Cowgirlheld off the fast-finishing Mostly Spirit to win by a head for Kristy Butler and Gareth Rattray with Flashy Ruler cruising home in the last for John Castles and Rohan Hillier.   Shane Yates

Two trainers dominated Sunday night’s Launceston Pacing Club meeting at the TAB Racing Centre, Ben Yole cemented his place at the top of the Premiership table with an amazing run of five winners while Kent Rattray nailed a winning double on the eight-event card. Kent’s winners were Karalta Kruise (pictured) which was sent the popular pick after opening up at $5.00 and tumbling into $3.40 in race two The Bevan Lee’s Butchery Pace over 2200-metres and Jimi Sanz in the Jubilee Bakery Two Year Old. However, the weekend wasn’t all plain sailing for the Lietinna trainer. “The wheels had literally fallen off on Friday night after the races, I didn’t make it any further than Kempton and a wheel came off the float so it was a bit of task to get the horses home, Todd (Rattray) took one and Marc (Butler) chipped in as well so that was handy but it meant a hectic day Saturday getting everything sorted,” said Kent. “We had a change of fortune Sunday luckily, I took my $20 to have on Karalta Kruise thinking I’d get $8.00 but it was already into $3.70, but a winner’s a winner, he was a little stiff not to win the last start and when John (Walters) was able to find the top I was confident he would be hard to run down.” Karalta Kruise gave nothing else a chance in the straight coming away on the line to score by 6.8 metres after running home in a smart 57.8 seconds. Rattray’s Rock N Roll Heaven-Soho Knightly colt Jimi Sanz ($7.40) was having just his second start at the sports after running last on debut in Hobart behind Missin Rock. “He’s beautifully bred and a really nice type, he’s a real Denis the Menace, if there is trouble around he will either cause it or find it,” said Kent. “He ran 60-metres off last in Hobart on debut but we made a slight gear change and that made all the difference, he found the lead early and was then challenged by the favourite Kohanah ($1.20) but he responded like a good horse and when the heat was turned up on the home corner he was in for the fight, they had a great battle up the straight but Jimi got there by a half-head, if he pulls up well we will press on to the Golden Slipper in a fortnight.” Ben Yole’s sensational night saw the Sidmouth trainer in the winners stall on five occasions. Border Cross started the run when Samantha Gangell guided the seven-year-old to his first Tasmanian win at odds of $48.10, Troy McDonald charged to an eight-metre win with Northview Dave in the fourth of the night before Gareth Rattray made it three straight for the stable leading all the way with Artarama. Stuey D took the honours in the Trotters Handicap for Mark Yole who then promptly followed up with an inspired drive on the Allen Williams Memorial final winner Nor Westa which ran favourite in the last scoring by 4.3-metres.   Shane Yates

Trainer Ben Yole picked up his second bag of four winners for the weekend with another successful night at Devonport on Sunday. Fresh from winning four races on Friday night in Hobart Yole wasted no time in adding to his tally taking out the Sky Racing Allen Williams Memorial Final with three-year-old filly Nor Westa, driven by Mark Yole. "I thought it's a terrific win, she won her heat impressively at Devonport late in February at double-figure odds and she backed that up tonight with a powerful sprint coming from the tail of the field to win running away by nine metres," said Ben "Mark (Yole) found the back of the odds-on favourite Dusty Martini in the last circuit and he brought her into the race before peeling off his back putting them away with a great turn of foot out wide." The Yole stable continued its domination with Samantha Gangell guiding Miss Condoleezza to the line in the Tasracing Leigh Plunkett Mares feature. "Miss Condoleezza (pictured) won last time out at Devonport a fortnight ago at big odds and backed up again at double figures ($12.00), her job was made easier when the short-priced favourite Western Glory ($1.60) unfortunately broke gear going into the first turn," said the Sidmouth trainer. "Samantha rated her well in front and she responded strongly when tackled by Volkova Leis down the back straight to race clear to win by 7 metres down the home stretch." Gangell completed a driving double when the consistent eight-year-old I'm Full Tilt took the honours in the Collins Homes Pace. "Sam is showing the benefit of regular drives she has become a vital member of our team, she watches and she listens and is not afraid of hard work, on the track she is backing her judgement and it's paying dividends for the stable," said Yole. "I'm Full Tilt came from third last at the thousand to hit the front on the home turn and career away from his rivals for a convincing 12-metre win, his second win for the month after scoring in Hobart. Hez The One followed up his victory in Hobart on Friday night to nail his second win for the weekend in his trademark style, unleashing a paralysing sprint. "Rohan (Hadley) held him up for one crack at them and he was able to come from last inside the 400-metre mark to gun them down in the straight," said Ben. "Hez The One picked up three races last season, that's his third already this year and the way he's going there may be another one or two in him." The victory capped off a great night for Bridport trainer-driver Rohan Hadley, saluting the judge on three occasions in the sulky with the Shelley Barnes prepared Yatsenyuk Leis, first-up from a seven-month spell in the Lucas Hotel Latrobe Cup, his four-year-old Alaphilippe and Hez The One in The Claimer. Ideal Bliss bounced back from her luckless run in the George Johnson to nail her third win for the season from four starts winning the marathon for Paul Hill and Ricky Duggan while Colby Sanz broke through for his first win in the two-year-old for Kent Rattray and John Walters.

Former Victorian trotter Majestic Ess Jay made an outstanding debut in Tasmania to claim the first heat of the Aldebaran Park Tasmanian Trotting Cup in Hobart on Friday night. The Eric Jacobson-trained eight-year-old gelding (pictured) galloped away and lost an enormous amount of ground at the start and looked to have lost all hope but the veteran of 94 starts had other ideas. "We've only had him over for a fortnight and when I worked him during the week I thought we may have pulled the right rein in leasing him as he felt strong in his action, but when he missed the start so badly and stood up Trumps Golden Boy a good 80-metres I thought our tickets were confetti," said Eric. "Admittedly they went slow up front and he tacked on without expending too much energy and when Ray (Pullen) chose to go round them and find the top with a lap to run my spirits rose a little." Trumps Golden Boy, in search of its fifth straight win for Bianca Heenan, pulled out to issue his challenge inside the 400-metre mark and the race was well and truly on. "Considering the work Majestic Ess Jay ($3.40) was forced to do early I thought we may be in trouble but Ray held him together into the home straight and he went powerfully to the post," said a delighted trainer. "When you take a close look at his recent Victorian form Majestic Ess Jay should have something to offer here in Tasmania, in his last run on the mainland he lost 60-metres in the race where there was a track-record set and the owners said they clocked him running a mile-rate of 1:57.5  to get up and run sixth, 18-metres off the winner." Harjeet ($1.00) waltzed home in the Metropolitan Cup scoring by 13-metres for Todd Rattray who capped off his night with success in the last race with Arthur Elliot winning at its second career outing. Ben Yole landed a race-to-race double with Troy McDonald steering home Hez The One ($15) to its second win for the month while Australian Female Drivers Championship state representative Samantha Gangell lifted the bolter Northview Dave ($21) over the line in the Yak Ales Pace. Favourite punters landed some blows of their own with the Bianca Heenan-trained Swap Me  ($2.50) continuing its great form, Couta Rocks ($1.80) bounced back into the winner's list for Marc Butler while last season's Sweepstakes and Dandy Patch winner Resurgent Storm ($1.40) recorded a stylish first-up win as a three-year-old for Roger Whitmore.   Shane Yates

Sidmouth harness racing trainer Ben Yole claimed half of the card at Burnie on Sunday including the $12,000 7BU Burnie Cup with Perfect Mach. The Mach Three-Pixel Perfect eight-year-old (pictured) scored his first win for the stable since arriving in the state in November. “That was his thirteenth start for us since we claimed him in Victoria, he ran a top second behind Riverboat Jasper in the NWTLHA Cup at his first run in Tasmania, we bought him with the Country Cup circuit in mind so it was great to see him find his best form at Burnie, he will now head to Scottsdale on Friday for the North-Eastern Cup,” said Ben. “The driving appointment was like a merry-go-round, Sam (Gangell) had driven Perfect Mach at his last four outings, she gave the drive up to Troy (McDonald), then Troy went and landed a double on Friday night in Launceston and lost his claim so we had to grab Hannah at the last minute, but it all worked out well as she drove him a treat.” Ben, in quest of his fourth straight trainer’s premiership, is enjoying another runaway lead in the 2018/19 season but was quick to share the success of the stable with the team. “Tim (Yole) is a vital cog in the wheel, he does a fantastic job as stable foreman and runs a well-oiled machine, Samantha (Gangell) and Troy (McDonald) are vital in their roles, we have a lot of horses so we are lucky that the team is all in there working for each other, any success we have we can put down to a team effort,” said an appreciative trainer. Mark Yole had another successful day chipping in with three winning drives to increase his lead in the Driver’s Premiership. “Mark has been in great form in the sulky, his drive on Northview Dave to come from outside the 10-metre line to lead after 250-metres was sensational,” said Ben. “That was on the back of winning efforts with Heidi Go Seek and the Karalta Dazzler in the opening two races.” 07 January 2019 | Shane Yates  

Bianca Heenan, Hannah van Dongen, Ben Yole , Mark Yole and Rod Ashwood all enjoyed successful evenings in Hobart on Friday picking up winning doubles. Bianca Heenan extended her lead in the Female Trainers Premiership with the first two winners on the card both steered home by rising star Hannah van Dongen. “Big Bang Raj ran right up to his last outing to win strongly from a tricky draw outside the front line, he began well but couldn’t get across without using too much petrol so Hannah just allowed him to settle midfield and waited for the early speed to come out of the race before making her move,” said Bianca. “Big Bang Raj got a breather in the middle stages and when the pressure came on at the 400 metre mark he was ready to go and he took over turning for home and burst clear to win easily, I was also happy with the run of stablemate Swap Me which ran on strongly to run the quinella at double figure odds.” Bianca and Hannah team up again in race two with Alta Surreal making it back-to back victories after scoring in style at Carrick on Sunday. “Alta Surreal (pictured) is in a rich vein of form he won powerfully last week and once he found the front I was feeling confident, ” said the Brighton trainer. “He was attacked and headed by Jake’s A Joy at the bell but Hannah didn’t panic, she was rating Alta Surreal well and at the 400 metre pole she lifted the tempo and he strolled away for five  metre win.” Ben and Mark Yole combined with seven-year-old mare I’m Paige coming from the one – one and Diamond Grace overpowering The Lemon Drop Kid after sitting in the breeze while Rod Ashwood was successful with the Juanita McKenzie prepared Isacc toppling stablemate Laredo Torpedo before saluting in the last for Ken Shorter with odds-on favourite Betterthanfetta.   Shane Yates

Junior driver Taylor Ford stormed clear at the top of the Leading Female Drivers award after steering home a winning double in Hobart on Friday taking her winning tally to six winners and in the process moved to fifth place on the State Premiership table. Ford has formed a formidable force with trainer Bianca Heenan early in the 2018/19 season and further enhanced her reputation in the gig with two wins and a second placing from four drives. Taylor finished second with Twenty Two Karat, beaten 1.4 metres by the Ben Yole-trained Lake Eyre before finishing midfield with Big Bang Raj behind Secluded Beach. Jacks Command, a seven-year-old gelding, had won two its last three outings coming into the Sky Racing Pace over the 2090-metre trip for trainer Bianca Heenan and was sent out an $8 chance with the Todd Rattray prepared Zhukov Leis, in line for a hat-trick, the $1.50 favourite. Taylor speared Jacks Command to the early lead before dropping anchor through the first quarter running 33.7 seconds, Zhukov Leis sat in the death as Taylor picked up the tempo recording 29.8 and 28.2 sectionals before going for broke inside the 400-metre mark, dropping Zhuvov Leis on the corner and racing clear to score by 11.6 metres running home 57.3 seconds. Taylor’s second winner of the night was Bounty Eyre ($4.20) in the last the Claimer, the ten-year-old Heenan prepared gelding scored at it’s last Hobart appearance three weeks ago before finishing just behind the placegetters at Devonport. Bounty Eyre (pictured) began safely from the stand and settled leading the one out train before Taylor eased to gain cover at the mile-marker. As the field entered the back straight on the last occasion Taylor made her winning move easing out three wide before challenging for the lead racing off the back. Ford laid all her cards on the table on the home turn and Bounty Eyre was up to the challenge responding strongly in the home stretch to win by 3.2-metres over Another Swinger and Im Barney Rubble.

Ben Yole continued his powerful defence of his Leading Trainers Title by preparing four of the eight winners on the programme at Devonport on Sunday. Ben’s winning run commenced in race two with Pushkin, despite being friendless in the betting. “It was three-way photo at the finish and I was probably the only person not worried about which way the result went because we trained all three but Pushkin (pictured – middle) has been a grand campaigner for us, he won four races last season and has already picked up two wins this season at odds of $18 and $51,” said Ben. “Troy (McDonald) has been driving well so it was no surprise to see him lead all the way with Giant Steps in the fifth race and collect his double and I’m sure punters were much happier as it was well supported ($3.10) to run favourite.” Monarkmac has gone close to winning on two occasions this season going down narrowly to Haleys Comet in Launceston and El Jays Monet in Hobart. “He’s a ten-year-old now and he found himself in the right race with the right draw and he was able to do the rest, Rohan (Hadley) rated him well and he had enough in hand to stave off stablemate No Apachemee which made a late charge after getting off the pegs turning for home,” said Ben. “The stable finished off with Im Barney Rubble, he’s just a machine, he won six races last year at ten years of age and has already nailed three from six this season, he won by over five metres and had them covered a long way out.” The Todd Rattray trained and driven six-yer-old Taurisi ($1.60) showed his class to come off the 30-metre handicap and score a runaway 5.1-metre win in the Discretionary over Karalta Dazzler and Poker Storm. Paul Ashwood trained the quinella in the Maxfield Drilling Pace for Mick Maxwell but not in the order most punters would have preferred with Krafty Boy ($4.80), driven by Rohan Hillier,  storming home over the top of popular pick Miracle Marcus ($2.00). Punters won the battle on the night with six favourites saluting including the Bianca Heenan prepared Mon Poppy Polly ($2.70) driven by Taylor Ford and the Melissa Maine-trained Better Go Go ($2.30) steered home by Gareth Rattray.

The state’s reigning leading female trainer titleholder Juanita McKenzie is still in search of her first winner for the 2018/19 season. Tonight in Launceston Juanita has two runners from her Magra stables Laredo Torpedo in race four the Elders Insurance Launceston Pace and The Aussie in race six the Great Northern Super Crisp Pace. “Laredo Torpedo is a work in progess, he galloped excessively on debut in the state and finished last but his effort to run fourth last week was solid, he worked home well down the outside and only beaten two to three metres (2.7-metres) in the race won by Pushkin,” said Juanita. “Ricky (Duggan) was happy with his run and said he felt good so I’m expecting further improvement from him tonight, he has always had a few issues but we will keep working on those as the season goes on and get him sorted out.” Juanita has slowly been cutting back her team over the past couple of years but one horse she won’t be parting ways with is the ever consistent The Aussie. “I’m trying to concentrate more on life-balance these days and so we don’t have as bigger stable as in the past and I’m happy with that, I can put more time into family and also focus more on the better performers,” said a contented Juanita. “The Aussie would have to be the most honest horse I’ve ever been associated with, he is Mister  100% every start, he won six races last season and flew home when third to Illegal Immigrant in Launceston a fortnight ago.” “We were very confident he would race well last week but he suffered broken gear at the start and was retired from the event but he looks well suited tonight in a small field on the second line as I believe he races better from behind.” Mark Yole comes off his first bag of four winners in Hobart and has another handy book of eight drives including two of his winners from last week and the popular pick Mornings in race one, The Ben Yole-trained Dawn Ofa New Day-Frans Jewel three-year-old has won its only two runs in the state with Mark in the gig on both occasions. Mark will also attempt to guide El Jays Monet to a winning hat-trick in race six and will again partner Im Barney Rubble in search of back-to-back wins in race seven the Impress Print Claimer. Mark’s other major hopes of repeating his sensational effort of a quartet of winners come in race five the Carlton Draught Stakes with Lake Eyre and in the last on the card the Chartley Estate Trotters Discretionary with the Adam Emery prepared Ten Caisses. Tonight’s eight event Launceston Pacing Club card, commencing at 17.00, may be viewed on the live stream service at tasracing.com.au. Shane Yates
