No shenanigans as Gear celebrates double



BUNDABERG trainer David Gear celebrated twice as hard with twin success at Thabeban Park on Saturday.

Promising Eyes (3.10) gave Gear his first win, when she made light work of a wide box to take out the BG's Tyre and Mechanical

5th Grade over 460m. It was an impressive run to record back-to-back victories, with favourite Cynthia Stanley 1.25 lengths back in second, as Oznic Dancer rounded out the placegetters.

Gear's day got better in race 7 when Shenanigans (3.60) shed off its bridesmaids tag to past the post first in the AATEC Business Equipment 5th Grade.

While it may not have been a surprise to see Bundaberg trainer Lorraine Isles in the winner's circle, even she must admit it was some-what of a boil-over when Extremities (5.00) won the Grade 1/2 Free For All.

However, the grade two bitch did not have things all her own way, with the ever-consistent Red Bow Tie less than a length behind in second and veteran runner Unique Girl in third.

Other Bundaberg trainers to have success on the day were Lorraine Horton, with Mixed Pleasure (1.85), David Raines and his outsider Just Cindy (6.00), and John Moore as he cheered on Abundia Girl (4.20) in the last.
