Harness Racing: Titian Raider earns Chariots tilt

Reinsman Glenn McElhinney will head to the Group 1 Chariots of Fire with Titian Raider and believes his charge has what it takes to mix it with the best at Tabcorp Park, Menangle.

McElhinney and Titian Raider teamed up last Saturday to win the Group 2 Cordina Chicken Farms Hondo Grattan and they now have their eye on bigger and better things.

The win qualified them for the Chariots of Fire and even though there is an obvious step up in class McElhinney says he would not want to be with any other horse in the race.

Old mates

A win would also have extra meaning as Titian Raider is trained by his good friend Harry Martin.

"Harry and I are just a couple of old mates who are enjoying the ride that this horse is taking us on," McElhinney told reporters. "He is a very smart individual and I tell anyone that wants to listen that he is getting better with every run. And Titian Raider’s owners are a great bunch too.

"They know what it is like to own a good horse and they let me do my job as a driver.  I cannot thank them enough for having faith in me.

"No doubt the Chariots will draw a star-studded field, but I would not swap my drive for any other."

Return from injury

McElhinney is also delighted to be back in the sulky after suffering a nasty fall in November of last year that resulted in him being on the sidelines for six weeks.

"It was a frustrating time for me as I had some nice drives in good races over the Christmas-New Year period," McElhinney added. "But all is well now, and I am back in the gig and driving some winners."
