Six-year-old Mondooley Mach exploded in the last straight to win the Jack Sheedy Memorial Pace on Friday at Busselton Trotting Club.

The impressive win for Kenwick trainer Joe Rigioli was driven by his son Jamie, demonstrating the family’s successful stables.

It will be hoped the powerful gelding will achieve a repeat performance this Friday night in race 5 the Kaiden Hayter Pacing Stables Pace.

The Pony Trots also provided some family-friendly entertainment with talented young driver Hayley Harper driving Limehill Exquisite to victory by three lengths.

Another Rigoli horse looking for a win tonight will be Allthewaytoroyalty which will come up against stiff competition in the Blue Family Memorial Pace with Aaron Beckett’s Torpedo Rock and Kaiden Hayter’s Fight Song both fighting for top honours. Fight Song made it three wins from three races for Bunbury trainer, Hayter, last week and seems sure to win again before seasons end.

Local businesses from Margaret River to Busselton have donated goods to Busselton Trotting Club to raffle on behalf of the Red Cross Australia Bushfire Appeal.

Two prizes were won last meeting with $600 raised and more raffles will be drawn on tonight and on Cup night January 31.

Gates at 5.30pm, races start at 7.05pm.
