Another Pick’s dashing all the way win in last Thursday’s Exchange Printers 5+ Wins Stake (512 metres) at Tara Raceway was the culmination of a big day for Edenhope trainer Cap Abbott.
The win, by 5½ lengths over Joe’s Gold in a personal best time of 29.98 seconds, was the long-time trainer’s fourth for the day after Cadillac Prince, Our Bro Paddy and White Cadillac had previously been successful.
Another Pick was purchased as a four-month-old pup by Abbott and Kerry Hawker, the daughter of Unlawful Entry x Proud Fantasy bringing up her eighth local win this year. She now holds a one point lead over Sianna Magic in the Mount Gambier Greyhound of the Year.
For Abbott, it is a case of chasing his second GOTY title after Black Spring, with 13 wins and 74 points, defeated Cryer’s Harper (13, 68) in the 2019 award.
Our Bro Paddy brought up his second consecutive win for owners Hawker and Sarah Price after taking over the running off the back in the Winning Post Supplies 1-4 Wins Stake (400 m).
By My Bro Fabio, the winner is out of Banjo Queen who had been given to Hawker by NSW owner Andrew Varasdi after winning two races in Canberra. Trained by Price’s father, Tracie, Banjo Queen went on to win a further 12 races at Angle Park and Tara Raceway.
Abbott’s four winners was his best day at the track since December 24 last year when he had been successful with White Cadillac, Black Spring, Mauritian Rascal and Another Pick.
