Star Commander, the hot favourite which was slow to begin, caught the field and made his move with 800 metres to run, looping the field to sit parked beside Smooth Mara. Williamson has won the Southland Drivers Premiership for the past eight years but this year he's been challenged by former premiership winner Brent Barclay who drives primarily for the powerful Brett Gray stable.
He was third in the 2016 Queensland Derby and finished second to Salty Robyn in the Hondo Grattan so it was a breeding quinella for the Robyn breed.
Salty Robyn was bred by Tapanui trainer Matt Saunders.
Stanley Ross Robyn named after Ross won two races for Hamish Hunter before being exported to Australia where hes won another four.
The Bettors Delight gelding settled four back on the inside after the early rush for positions with Smooth Mara leading out.
Hes got more carts than I have, said Holland with a rye smile. He had a few traffic problems just around the top but once he cleared a few tired runners he felt good, trainer driver Brendon Mc Lellan said after driving Pass The Speights to win the Mc Dowall Painting and Decorating Gore Grass Cup.
Anyway I went down there and knocked on the door and Gil (Gil Shirley owner of Ascot Stud) came to the door. As a racehorse Just Jazzan was initially trained by Graeme Mc Intyre before Brent took over.
I said I just called in to make an offer on that horse. She provided Brent with his first winner at Invercargill in 1992 and won a total of six races. The first Bonnie Lass won ten races and is still being bred from at Macca Lodge.
Graeme said to me what about racing her together so we ended up doing that.
