Trainer-driver Corey Peterson took out the $10,000 Photography By Jodie Hallows Pace (2662m) at Narrogin Racing last Sunday, as One For Dave Andme saluted in the feature race.

Staring at $4.20, the five-year-old gelding was able to win the feature race by 2.5m over Disco Durante and The Kraken while the $1.70 hot favourite, Soho Interceptor, was back in fourth.

Peterson was one of four successful trainer-driver combinations on the seven-race twilight card, as Shane Young, Ryan Bell and Madeleine Young all completed the same feat.

Longreach Bay won race one for Shane Young winning by a dominant 6.2m over $51 long shot Medieval Man. Bell tasted success with four-year-old mare and $1.70 favourite Kamendable Jroll in the fillies and mares race over 2242m, edging out Kel Bruton by 3m.

The favourite, Folsom Prison, was able to salute for driver Madeleine Young in the last race over Batavia Blackhole by just under 2m.

Trainer Matthew Scott had a day to remember, training a thoroughbred winner in Albany and a harness winner in Narrogin.

Miracle Max was too strong in race 2 for the favourite, Victoria Calling, for Scott and driver Shannon Suvaljko, just two hours before Dolly Em saluted in Albany.

Bailey Major took out race four while Just Barney was able to walk away with the win in race five by a narrow head margin.
