Drawn the Gun 'Pole' draw Karrots. You'll be all over this one !! The Sweet Lou horse ran Lochinvar Art down easily on his return from injury recently.

A year ago 'Lochie' won this race very easily , but just the 2 starts since with many months off. so fitness edge is with Spirit as well.

Also 'Lochie' will possibly lead after drawing 2? , so look at the Sweet trip , Spirit will get in the run ? then a Sweet Victory at the Post then?? It's on the cards.

Not the biggest prize up for grabs for Expat Kiwis this weekend.

That honour belongs to $300,000 Fremantle Cup raced Friday Night at Gloucester Park.

A couple of Ex Kiwi Pacers who began their careers on The Mainland fought out the finish,with only a nose separating the Team Bond pair MINSTREL and PATRONUS STAR.

MINSTREL was bred by recently retired driver David Butt & Catherine Butt via their Birchbrook Breeding Banner,along with Jackie Butt & Mrs P M Calder.

After winning on debut at Addington,driven by Cam Jones (recently making headlines for wrong reason)left NZ for Perth as winner of 4 from 10.

The Butt's,& R D Butt have retained an Ownership Interest,a wise move,as Stake Earnings now approach $500,000.

PATRONUS STAR had 7 NZ starts for Rangiora Horseman Gavin Smith,winning at Washdyke & Waterlea.

Began West Australian Career winning first 7 Races,and has now banked $390,000.🤑🤑🤑

Team 'Bond' with 4 ex-pat kiwis in it, and Team "Hall' also with 4 ex-pat kiwis in that race too. 

The Bonds' and Halls' WA stables will be back in Southland soon scavenging for more no doubt.

$141 for the 4 kiwi horses. Numbers 3-9-8-9 . could of got that with $1.

New Zealand harness racing at it's very best lol.  

Wayne Higgs still shows as the kiwi owner of the great mare formally with Mark Jones. Has Now won over $1/2 mill.  Jack Trainor sends her home in 1.50.7 ..

Make that a quaddie for Expat Kiwis.Jack Trainor followed  the blueprint he adopted when driving Krug to victory earlier.However,whilst Krug was dominant,STYLISH  MEMPHIS was fully extended before gaining superiority late.Kiwi Breeder/Owner Wayne Higgs sees his mare push upwards of $500k earnings.🤑

No stopping The Kiwis at Menangle tonight.A double for Trainer Cran Dalgety,and Driving Treble for Jack Trainor,after JUST REMEMBER ME  triumphs in Group 2 action.After using plenty of petrol on mission to find midrace lead,she was a 'sitting duck' to being gobbled up by Local Star Madrid.However the 'Adore Me' blood shone through,and she got some Aussie Black Type at first time of asking.🤑

Yeah , he had them all flat as piss from the quarter and had beaten that 2nd horse of Dixon's last week as well. Not a bead of sweat lost 😆😅.

Did however drop $20 on 'Maori Law' just then in the Ballarat Group 2 trot though.  He got run down into 2nd place unfortunately, the bugger 😂

Finally he got up! Spirit takes the G1 needed for Lou. Flip took a while. So thats Sweet On Me & Spirit of St Lou from his 1st crop now 5yo to both take G1 from both sex male/female. That driver on Spirit is pretty good. Got off the rail. Otherwise would of been stuck 4-5 back. Good race to watch with lots of moves. Too good Spirit over da top hehe. 

And Mighty Looee over da top too. 

Excellent stuff Kiwis, as you & Josias gave the running commentary, would of been exciting to watch, with them ALL coming in. Krug parked & TOO tough. He is my pick for Mikes comp in THE RACE. Yippee like it 😄
