PREMIER Albury trainer Brett Cavanough extended his sensational recent streak when he produced another winning treble at his home track yesterday.
The stable has been in red-hot form over the past month and capped a big week for Cavanough after he also prepared a winning double at Albury on Melbourne Cup day.
The dominant force in Southern District racing also prepared a winning treble at Albury on Caulfield Guineas day to enhance his reputation as the undisputed king of his home circuit.
Cavanough trained the last three winners on the seven-race card with Ring ‘N’ Swing ($2.20-fav), Prince Pedro ($1.40-fav) and Frog Hollow ($2.30-fav) sending favourites punters home with plenty in their pockets.
“Everyone is working hard and we are getting the results,” Cavanough said.
“I have got three good trackwork riders, the stable staff are putting in the effort and the local jockeys are supporting me.”
Ring ‘N’ Swing scored his first career win in the $15,000 Maiden Hcp (1175m) from just his third career start with apprentice Jason Woodhouse aboard.
The four-year-old gelding is raced by a syndicate including Albury Racing Club president David Wallace and committeeman Stephen Baxter.
“They are loyal supporters and I can’t remember the last winner I trained for them but they have stuck by me and it is satisfying to repay the faith,” Cavanough said.
Cavanough has his sights set on the Snake Gully Cup next Friday for Prince Pedro after he resumed from a 10-week let-up to score a classy win and give Woodhouse a winning double.
“He was still carrying a bit of condition but his class got him through,” Cavanough said.
“Local apprentice Amanda Masters has been riding him in track work and deserves a lot of the credit for the win.”
Frog Hollow brought up the third consecutive win with victory in the Class 2 Hcp (1175m) with Ronnie Bell aboard.
