Muscle Bank's big move up trotters' leaderboard
A winning double at Blenheim has propelled Muscle Bank up to second in the Seddon Shields Trotters' Series.
The Tom Bamford-trained trotter was in imperious form in Marlborough and now has 22 points in the series, four behind Boyz Invasion who he beat into second place on both days (January 19 and 21) at Waterlea Raceway.
Boyz Invasion now has a four point lead on 26. He's the only trotter who has started in all seven races in the series so far.
In its first year, the series, run by the Seddon Harness Racing Group, has just two race meetings left, at Westport and Reefton on March 8 and 10.
Each leg of the series is worth between $15,000 and $20,000.
Points for each race will be allocated as follows:
1st – 7 points
2nd – 5 points
3rd – 4 points
4th – 3 points
5th – 2 points
One point for every other starter.
At the end of the series the connections of the horse with the most points will get a bonus of $10,000, with $3,000 for second and $2,000 for third.
