Kerryn Manning named the queen of harness racing in australia today by the little rag. Would that be a fair assessment?

TEENAGER Ellen Tormey was the toast of Moonee Valley last night.

Tormey, 18, was having just her second drive at the track when she won the Tatlow Final (2100m) aboard the unbeaten Mister Castleton.

Watching on proudly was Australia's harness racing queen, Kerryn Manning, who is now Tormey's boss.

Tormey showed great poise and aggression early to push through the field from the back row and take the lead inside the first 100m.

A fired-up Mister Castleton, trained by Tormey's father John, then over-raced badly in front, but ran his rivals ragged to win by 17m and stretch his record to four wins from as many starts.

Four of Tormey's 15 career wins from just 216 drives - have been on Mister Castleton, but none quite as significant as last night.

Tormey, a former star of Victoria's pony trot circuit, deferred her university studies this year to pursue her harness racing dream.

"Getting a full-time job working for Kerryn (Manning) was great and now Mister Castleton's come along as well," she said.

Tormey shared the limelight last night with Aldebaran Dreams who scored a remarkable win in the Victoria Trotters Oaks (2575m).

Aldebaran Dreams' hopes looked shattered when she was poleaxed by Arizona Blue soon after the start.

The Chris Lang-trained filly settled down 70m from the leader but recovered to come with a long, sustained run and win pulling away by 3m.

Aftanoondelite looked the winner on the turn before Alabaran Dreams' burst.

that's trotting races for ya, basically pissing money up against the wall like hurdle races. I remember backing that Built Like A Brick shithouse a few times a year or 2 ago and all it ever did was tail off at the start or break in running. Same thing at Horsham today in the trotters, a 33/1 Manning horse won it, started 6/4 fav and ran LAST just 2 weeks ago Joule Count    :lol:

I quite like Very Chic tonight in the 6th, didnt have the best of luck last time in our race and it's a step down in grade here. I reckon whatever beats it will win.

 Evening all,

MV. 1. Agree with Denzil I like McLlhaton ew over the mile, backed it last start when it ran 3rd to Make waves and Albert Jaccka(won since) over the mile. Hopefully Lance can hold the front and it can be behind the leader.

MV.2. Will be backing Front and square ew, like this horse a lot and has recently changed trainers to Peter Hornsby which should be of great benefit to her. Would rather her from the mobile, but still worth a bit ew.

MV.3. Nothing for me,

MV.4. Nothing for me,

MV.5. Kalhari Prince ew,

MV.6. Agree with Geoff and like Gilt Bromac,

MV.7. Will back Secret Tender and Lombo Lumberjack,

MV.8. Too many questions for me,

MV.9. Too many average conveyances,

Race 1 is a very open race IMO.  Barrachias is the form runner but draw no favour.  The 6 horse draws awkwardly as well but does go good.  I like the 4 each way. Beat a good field at Mildura and in good time for up there. Does have good gatespeed and if can lead here will be hard to run down.

Awesome tip Geo, paid huge  :clap2:

"GoBaggers:I quite like Very Chic tonight in the 6th, didnt have the best of luck last time in our race and it's a step down in grade here. I reckon whatever beats it will win.
 
geoffkel:Like the horse Baggers but last 100m will be a worry as tends to race a little fierce sometimes. "
************

If I'd known very chic would lead and run reasonably soft sectionals before scooting home in 28 with jazzam coming from well back, I'd have backed very chic with everything in my pocket.

Only had 2 bets for the night thankfully the other thing won.

Last 100 jeez how right you were geoffkel.

I see my old mate RONAL LAD is in race 5 tonite, 1st emergency getting a run, now trained by the puppetmaster but driven tonite by Scott Dyer. this will be a nice shifty ride, it just doesnt like turns...pity they dont go up the straight like at flemington. Anyway i reckon let him settle down, loop the field and try and lead by the bell, driver will have real sore arms at the end. At least u mite get double figure odds tonite, unlike his last three. He would KILL this field on his best behaviour

So they get time for whipping too much, but no time for dodgy drives  :shutup:

OL....I totally agree......Get 1 week for basically trying to win to hard.....Geez...So much grey area there..

I remember Vinney one night at his speech at Moonee Valley the first thing he said was sorry to the horse for hitting him so many times...
Can't remember if it was Poppy or Maybe bag limit but he gave a flogging to...

Animal Libs it is for I think.....Remembering last week Obama got in trouble for killing a fly...Yet the asians can go hunt those beautiful big whales...
Ooooops sorry off the topic.....Hmmm....Where was I again....  :biggrin:

from heraldsun;

MOONEE Valley and harness racing are parting company. The sport's long-time Victorian headquarters will host its last harness racing meeting on February 27.

With Harness Racing Victoria investing $45 million in a new home, Melton's Tabcorp Park, the scaling down of Moonee Valley was inevitable, but a complete split so soon is a surprise.

Friday night's meeting will be one of just nine more at Moonee Valley.

The Valley hosted its first harness meeting on October 30, 1976 and gradually took over as Melbourne's home of harness from the Royal Melbourne Showgrounds.

The Showgrounds era ended on October 20, 1980.

"We were phasing out of Moonee Valley with a plan for just 11 meetings there next season (2009-10), but the fantastic feedback we've had to Tabcorp Park has fast-tracked things for us," HRV chief executive John Anderson said.

"It's far more financially beneficial for us to race at Tabcorp Park. We have been in talks with the Moonee Valley Racing Club and have now reached a formal agreement to part company."

MVRC chief executive Michael Browell described the split as "a win-win".

"We are very happy with the terms of the agreement," Browell said.

"From a non-race day perspective, we have been inundated with requests to use Moonee Valley as a function venue in November/December, mostly on Saturday nights, which will now be available for that use."

Browell said the removal of Moonee Valley's harness track allowed for a revamp of the thoroughbred track.

"It certainly gives us more options, by way of possibly widening the track, if there isn't a harness track there," he said.

Anderson said talks had initially centred on the $1 million Hunter Cup night on February 6 as the farewell meeting.

"We decided that was a big enough event in itself with the Hunter Cup, Inter Dominion trotting final and the Victoria Derby, so we wanted to mark the end of such a big era in harness racing with a farewell meeting of its own," he said.

The original agreement between HRV and the Valley was signed in 1984 and was due to expire in 2024.

Tabcorp Park will host its first official meeting on Sunday week.

Major races such as the Breeders Crown in August and Victoria Cup in December have already been switched from the Valley to Tabcorp Park.
