REIGNING Victorian metropolitan and provincial premiership trainer Andrea Dailly had a night out to remember when she rugged up seven winners at Ballarat early last month.
Dailly led in the first six winners on the 11-race program, including one quinella, and then had to settle for seconds in the next three events before winning again in race 10.
The kennel didn\’t have a runner in the final event.
Dailly winners were Arartuza Bale ($1.70 fav, maiden, 390m), Fabriola Yes ($1.20 fav, maiden, 390m), Asquith Bale ($6.10, maiden, 450m), Surella Bale ($2.40 fav, grade 7, 450m), La La Missouri ($3.50, mixed 6/7, 450m), Iago Bale ($5.60, mixed 4/5, 390m) and Rockstar Gately ($1.40 fav, GAP 3-6 wins heat, 450m).
And her winners didn\’t stop there.
Later in the month, the Anakie-based trainer led in four winners – Zanfrey Bale ($2.70 fav), Sunset Bourbski ($3.70), Gladioli Bale ($6.20) and Tiberia Bale ($2.80 fav) – at The Meadows and four nights later another four – Hojilla Bale ($3.60), Brad Keeping ($2 fav), Dim Sim ($4.30) and Aston Gates ($2 fav) – at Ballarat and two trebles at The Meadows.
