Lombo lands the money

The stable posted an impressive winner during last week's popular Mildura Pacing Cup three-night carnival.

Eight-year-old gelding Lombo Flashlight took out the Sunraysia Daily Claiming Pace, courtesy of a brilliant drive by stable reinsman Damian Wilson.

Lombo Flashlight (Bettors Delight-Lombo Light Speed) pulled out plenty over the final stages to land the money - his second win in just three runs since being transferred to Tony at St Forte.

The pacer is raced by long-time supporters of harness racing in Martin and Kaye Hartnett. The mile rate for the 2180m trip was a comfortable two minutes.

Lombo Light Speed (Troublemaker-Lombo La Paree), the dam of Lombo Flashlight, was certainly no slouch on the racetrack herself, winning eight races with eight placings from 40 starts for $40,000 in stakes. While grand dam Lombo La Paree posted an impressive eight wins from 14 outings for earnings of more than $110,000.

If the stable decides to continue to race Lombo Flashlight in the claiming events, there’s a fair chance someone wanting to take a fit and competitive racehorse to the track will be quick to snap up the opportunity.

Other news is centred around a bunch of youngsters who are progressing nicely and continue to impress. They should be seen at the racetrack soon.
