Doubles the trend at Addington last night

By Mike Love, Harness News Desk

Addington Raceway provided doubles for drivers, trainers and sires last night. The Williamson family combined with three wins (Krackaling, Majestic Love and Jimmy Carter) and two placings from six runners.

Majestic Love picked up her third win from eight starts when she won race 3, the Resource and Recycling Trot over 2000m from the stand. It was not an unexpected victory, starting favorite and with plenty of confidence in the camp.

“She’s a nice little trotter. Good manners and pretty solid," said Phil Williamson.

“It was a wee bit of a plan that came off for a change.”

Brad Williamson drove Majestic Love, giving him a double in the sulky after Krackaling’s impressive return to racing in race one which he trains and drives.

Jimmy Carter made it a hat trick of wins when he won for Williamson. It was the 8 year old The Pres geldings twelfth win from ninety four starts.

“He’s been racing really well. We’ve been totally thrilled with him,” said Williamson.

John Morrison has steered Jimmy Carter in all three of his hat trick wins.

“He’s done a great job with the driving. And the home team has done a great job having him ready each time he goes to the races. He’s won twelve races now, so we are thrilled with him.

“It’s great for the owners. They’re a good team.”

Earlier in the card John Morrison also won with Sharp As A Tac impressively for Tony Barron. The three-year-old Always B Miki gelding has now made it one win and three placings from six starts.

Others achieving doubles were driver Sam Ottley (Commander Ben for Kevin Fairbairn and What The Bell for Mark Jones), trainer Mark Jones going race to race (What The Bell and Tempo Warrior), and sires A Rock N Roll Dance (Tempo Warrior for Mark Jones and Mossdale Ben for Greg & Nina Hope), and What The Hill (Krackaling for Brad Willimason and What The Bell for Mark Jones.
