Shannen Llewellyn Lands Four Narromine Winners

By Colin Hodges

When the grey gelding Toulon Factor flashed down the outside to win the final event it brought up four winners at Narromine on Monday for Shannen Llewellyn.

This was a remarkable achievement by the apprentice jockey who only began race riding four months ago and has already kicked home 23 winners.

Apprenticed to Brett Robb, Llewellyn won the opening races at Narromine for the Dubbo-based trainer on Causation and Castlebar Road.

Formerly trained in Victoria, Causation ($1.65 favourite) raced handy to the lead before beating stablemate Fire Finch (Shayleigh Ingelse, $13) and Our Warhorse (Michael Lunn, $21) in the 800m Narromine USMC Maiden Plate.

Resuming from a spell, Castlebar Road won at Wellington and it was another stylish win in the 800m QUBE Agri Benchmark 58 Handicap at Narromine when backed from $3 to $1.85 favourite.

Owned and bred by Harry Barclay from Warren, Castlebar Road was outside the leader turning for home then dashed clear to score by over a length from Champers Girl (Williams Stanley, $21) and Simply Better ($8).

Winning the first three races in succession, Shannen Llewellyn was aboard the Jane Clement, Armidale-trained The Great Armada in the 1600m Trenleigh Fashion Class 1 & Maiden Plate.

Taking an inside run, The Great Armada ($2 to $1.80 fav) finished well to account for the Troy McCarney, locally-trained Moculta Warrior (Andrew Banks, $61) and Apple Cider (Will Stanley, $7.50).

Jane Clement also suppled Shannen Llewellyn with her fourth winner of the day, Toulon Factor in the Nutrien Ag Solutions Benchmark 66 Handicap.

From the back of the field, Toulon Factor ($15) steamed home to beat another strong finisher Fletchlo (Jean Van Overmeire, $5) with Almost Persuaded (Damon Budler, $21) in third place.

Bathurst trainer Gayna Williams produced a very smart debut maker in Zarizatycoon, winner of the 1300m Ag Auto Spark Country Boosted Maiden Plate.

Jumping from the outside barrier, Zarizatycoon (Mikayla Weir, $4.40) led by five lengths at one stage and held on strongly to beat Palentino Swinger (Shayleigh Ingelse, $1.65 to $1.45 fav) by a length with seven lengths to the third placed Xanthe (Andrew Banks, $41).

Bred and part owned by Adam Baker, Zarizatycoon is a half-brother to the five times winner Tags also trained by Gayna Williams.

Second leg of a double for Gayna Williams was British Statesman (Jean Van Overmeire, $2.25 fav) an all the way winner of the 1100m Ag N Vet Narromine Country Boosted BM 58 Handicap from Mr Severino (Georgina McDonnell, $18) and Choice Deel, Chelsea Stanley, $10).

Responsible for a very good ride was Georgina McDonnell who overcame the outside barrier to win the 1100m Three Rivers Machinery Case IH Maiden Handicap on Grand Oyster.

Trained at Dubbo by Peter Nestor for the breeder and part owner Ken Dennis, Grand Oyster ($3.50 to $2.70 fav) found a good midfield position and ran home well to win from Lanwar (Nick Heywood, $10) and William’s Smile (Shayleigh Ingelse, $61).

From last, the Derek Piper, Mudgee-trained Cheap Gas (Jake Pracey-Holmes, $11) rushed home to beat Minnewater (Dylan Stanley, $5.50) and Missile Maiden (Damon Budler, $8.50) in the 1100m Narromine Council Country Boosted BM 58 Handicap.

There are outstanding nominations for the Marthaguy picnics at Quambone on Saturday while Dubbo is set to host yet another successful TAB meeting on Sunday.
