Giveusthespoils thrills backers with long-odds win
After a scorching hot day it wasn’t much cooler on the track at Narrogin trots last Saturday night.
One of the highlights from the night was the first career win for four-year-old mare Giveusthespoils in race two.
Emily Suvaljko, the daughter of top veteran reinsman Shannon Suvaljko, produced a pearler to give her steer its first victory in 31 starts.
Drawn on the back line Giveusthespoils got a terrific run through at the beginning of the race and allowed Suvaljko to angle the mare down the peg line behind the leader and race favourite Dixie Belle.
Suvaljko eased the eventual winner to the outside of the leader into the straight and ran past the favourite at the 50m mark.
This brilliant start to the young driver’s career has Suvaljko looking set become one of the State’s leading reinsman in the years to come.
Followers of Giveusthespoils were rewarded with a price of $16.
The club hosted the Gloucester Park Harness Racing members trip number 23 and sponsored race three.
Twenty-five members spent the day and night in Narrogin before they headed to York for Cup day on Sunday to finish a weekend of country racing.
The next trot meeting is Friday, November 29.
Narrogin Racing will also host twilight markets with some leading reinsmen to feature in a shave-off to end fundraising for Movember.
