Another big day for Lenehan

It was another big day at Tara Raceway last Sunday for long-time Toolong trainer Phil Lenehan when he landed his fourth treble at the track this year – this time with Lektra Remi, Penguin Pat and Lektra Layla.

And Lenehan now looks to hold a strong hand in the forthcoming Tankman 600 Dual Challenge – 512 metre heats to be run on Sunday, May 19 and the 600 metre final on Sunday, May 26 at Tara Raceway.

Sharon Bradley, Phil Lenehan, Wyatt and Jarrad Williams with the winning treble – Penguin Pat, Lektra Remi and Lektra Layla.

In fact, the Gambier Vets Mixed Stake (600 m) probably revealed a few contenders.

Penguin Pat, a son of Ritza Lenny and It’s A Shame, led all the way from box one when defeating Skye Made Me, Blue Phoenix and Purified by 1¼ lengths in 35.18 seconds.

Skye Made Me, a last start 600 metre winner, stepped up in grade and lost no friends when running a gallant second. Also losing no friends was the strong-finishing Blue Phoenix – out of former top distance performer Miss Bellawood.

As far as the Tankman 600 is concerned, Lenehan also is likely to run Lektra Trigger after his 5¾ length second behind Jack Trengove’s Sharing in 35.08 seconds in the Todd’s Photographics Stake (600 m).

Lektra Remi kicked off Lenehan’s treble when virtually leading all the way in the Cadillac Racing Stake (400 m) and defeating Archer One by a length in 23.12 seconds.

And littermates Lektra Layla and Lektra Tony made it a kennel quinella in the Klaassens Contractors Stake (400 m) – 2¾ lengths separating the pair in 22.87 seconds.

Lenehan’s first treble of the year was back on January 28 with Penguin Pat, Lektra Tony and Lektra Tinsel. A week later, he won with Yesterday’s Hero, Lektra Fred and Lektra Tinsel. Then a month later with Lektra Layla, Lektra Tony and Lektra Tinsel.
