Albury continues to be a happy hunting ground for the Hayes stable with Tadween claiming its second victory in two starts at the venue.
The Euroa-trained three-year-old held off Rodger Waters’ Where’s Pippa and Gerald Egan’s Traffic Cop to claim the class two handicap at the club’s Oaks Day meeting yesterday.
Hayes’ race day representative Russell Treloar was pleased with the run.
“He really likes the track here at Albury,” Treloar said.
“Everything panned out alright for us, he got a nice, easy lead with no pressure and was able to kick on at the end for a nice win.
“His run in Adelaide (on October 27) wasn’t the greatest, that’s why we thought we’d bring him back to Albury and it’s worked dividends.”
However, the meeting also had its fair share of hometown winners.
Albury’s Norm Loy took out the final race - benchmark 58 handicap, with Squaw Valley notching its second win in four starts.
The Donna Scott-trained Bennelong Dancer was successful in the class 2 handicap – the fourth race on the card.
Denise Wise made it two wins at her home track in a week with Silks ‘N’ Stars prevailing in the maiden handicap race three, while fellow Albury trainer Jodie Bohr claimed the first of the day with Dashing ‘N’ Daring breaking its maiden.
