The exciting pacing at Narrogin Racing was well complimented by top notch spring weather last month.

In the second meeting for the current season, Nathan Turvey took early honours in the sulky after steering Miss Harlequin to a narrow second in the opening race.

Turvey produced a pearler to get Glitters first past the post in race two.

Sitting in sixth position, Turvey waited until the 350m mark to make his move with a well timed run.

Glitters who is a 12-year-old gelding bought up his first career win, bearing in mind it was only his 25th start. He did not start his racing until 2017.

As the meeting progressed the two better bets of the night duly saluted for trainer Michael Brennan.

“Mouse”, as he is well known, trained a race to race double with Antero $1.75 favourite and Machlani $1.34 favourite both winning easily in quick times.

Both horses were driven by Michael Grantham.

Nathan Turvey made sure however that the two Michaels weren’t going to hog the limelight by taking out race 5 of the night with a tough win by Jack William.

The seven-year-old Gelding was caught three wide in the early stages and worked forward to take over the lead with 1400m and brought home well to win by 3m.

It was his fourth win in the state since arriving from Victoria.

Ryan Bell was not to be outdone either earning a Trainer/Driver double with winners Kamendable Mako and Radiant Amber.
