Mike Hill tracks the multiple-winning trainers across Australia
THE powerful Andrea Dailly kennels dominated racing in Victoria last month.
Dailly, who produced multiple winners at seven meetings, rugged up a super six-win haul at Ballarat early in the month.
She was successful with Gypsy Toowoomba ($1.40), Shima Bolt ($1.20), Bahati Bale ($14.40), Radek Bale ($2.20), Malayah Bale ($8.50) and Aratuza Bale ($2.80).
The Anakie-based trainer also had a winning quartet at Ballarat and trebles at The Meadows (twice), Geelong, Ballarat and Sandown Park.
She was matched in the maximum number of wins at a meeting category by NSW conditioner Andrew Bell.
Based at Werombi, an outer region of Sydney, Bell led in his six winners at Richmond mid-month to increase his substantial lead in that club\’s trainers premiership after winning last year\’s title.
He\’s also the leading trainer at Dapto and is running fourth in the Wentworth Park title race.
Bell was certainly the punter\’s pal with five of his six winners well supported – General Cortez ($2.90), Collecting Model ($3,20), Lucky Eleven ($3), Ritza Daniel ($11), Good Odds Rebel ($1.90) and Piper Keeping ($1.95).
He also landed four winners at Richmond earlier in the month.
Another trainer in winning mode was SA\’s Rebecca Romyn, who was successful with five favourites at Murray Bridge.
Romyn\’s winners were Two Jabs ($1.40), Brace And Bits ($1.65), Shavano ($1.40), Ransom\’s Pride ($1.45) and Mr Flip Flop ($1.60).
