Harness Racing: Sir Eros wins again

Trainer Danny O’Brien has big hopes for Sir Eros, including a tilt at the Aldebaran Park Vicbred Platinum Home Grown Classic, after his trotter picked up an impressive win at Geelong's midweek meeting.

O'Brien says the stable have always rated Sir Eros very highly and he went up even further in their estimations when comfortably beating his rivals in his latest assignment, which was his second win in three starts.

Comfortable win

With reinsman Anthony Butt in the sulky Sir Eros was settled at the back of the field before making a move in the middle stages of the race.

Butt had little work to do as Sir Eros pulled away to take the win and O'Brien was delighted with the performance.

"We’ve always had a big opinion of him. He’s run home in 58 at the end of 2400 metres regularly in his work," O’Brien told reporters. "He’s got a lot of bottom to him. He’s just a lovely individual."

Big future targets

Looking further ahead and if all goes according to plan, O'Brien says Sir Eros will be aimed at the Aldebaran Park Vicbred Platinum Home Grown Classic.

The final which has prize money of $50,000 will take place at Tabcorp Park Melton on 19th March and is one of the top targets, but there are options aplenty.

"If all goes well, we’ll be looking at the derbies and other classics later in the season," O’Brien added.
