Black Comedy Serious About Winning At Scone (Tuesday)

By Geoff Newling

Damien Lane was taking two last start winners to Scone tomorrow but the Wyong trainer has decided to leave one at home and just campaign with four-year-old mare Black Comedy.

The daughter of Dane Shadow, who is coming off a Wellington Maiden win, has drawn well (7) and will be ridden by Greg Ryan in the Buy Turangga Stud Yearlings To Win Class 1 Handicap (900m).

“She won pretty well at Wellington,” Damien Lane said of the former Victorian galloper. “Obviously that was a lot weaker than this but she has plenty of gate speed and couldn’t have been any more impressive than at Wellington.”

Black Comedy has had nine starts for a win and two placings and faces a tough task being a last start maiden winner.

“Not many can make the jump from a maiden and win their next start but I think she can go on,” Lane added.

Both she and I’ve Got It, who also accepted at Scone tomorrow but will be scratched, came to him from Victoria and have had a couple of starts apiece.

“They both won on the same day too,” he said. “She won at Wellington and he won at Tuncurry.”

I’ve Got It is now expected to run at Taree on Friday if the weather remains fine.

Lane hopes his run of success at Scone continues tomorrow.

“It’s been a good track to me,” he said. “All But Gone won the Country Cup there last year (during the Scone Cup Carnival). That was my biggest win to date. He’s won a couple there and Spinning Gold has also won a couple there too. It’s a great track too, every horse gets his chance. It’s the perfect layout. You can be last and win or lead and win. You can take your horse there and know you can be competitive.”
