Drouin Report Saturday 9th February 2008
There were good size fields accepted for the Drouin meeting and a dead track which helped to mix the form up a bit with leaders advantaged on the track. The track rating was dead and there was some slight on and off rain throughout the day but the racing was competitive.
The first race was an open affair which went to the 3yo filly Aster Lass. Giving Kane Harris an early win to take the lead in the jockey premiership which is a close affair between himself and Adam Bodey with each rider on 24 winners coming into this meeting.
Race two saw Eureka Jet make amends for its disappointing run at Balnarring where it led a long way before weakening. There was no weakening today and favoured by the track conditions it led them up and won with something in hand from Cutiebertha and gave Kane Harris an early double.
The third went to Underfoot who also disappointed at its last start when a short priced favourite at Woolamai. Leading all the way and with some concern it would run out the 1200m everyone was left in no doubt as it won easily.
Race four went to the consistent Port Phillip who recently ran a good race in the professionals. The win gave Kara Anderson her third win for the season.
