Harness racing took centrestage in the evening at Narrogin after an amazing Cox Plate day in Melbourne on Saturday.

Competitive racing was the theme of the meeting with an eight card.

Bunbury reinswoman Aimee-Lee Wood landed her first winner as a driver on the Stephen Reed-trained five-year-old mare Beach Goddess in race 4.

The daughter of prominent South West trainer Vanessa Brockman, Wood positioned the out of form mare outside the hot pot favourite Hoiho and outstayed it down the straight to win by a nose at $17.

Former Kiwi horse Miss Tivoli came from last in race 1 to record a top win in only its third start in WA. Junior driver Michael Blakemore guided the mare to victory sweeping the widest out of the turn.

Pinjarra horseman, Dean Miller guided Aliman to victory from barrier 1 after defying a betting drift. The six-year-old was always on the bit throughout to land a 5m victory.

Ryan Bell guided in-form Rocknroll Whitby back into the winner’s circle, taking out race 6 on the program.

South West trainers Frank Bonnett and Steve Burton were also successful on the night with Santanna Cruiser and Phar From Kalahari, both winning at decent odds.

The club will open the bottom tote from 7am on Tuesday, November 6 for Melbourne Cup day, as a place to bet on the big race.
