First to arrive was Art Major/Caps Off gelding Major Capital in the BSC 3-Y-0 Pace over 2190 metres, running home strongly off a one/one trail to defeat Village Art and Saint Stormy in a mile rate of 2-02.4.
Four year old Metropolitan/Miss Devine gelding Justalittleloose snared the Milwaukee Power Tools Pace for C1 class over 1790 metres in a rate of 2-00.8.
Despite racing in the open, Justalittleloose proved too strong at the business end for McArdle Lassie and Coalemus.
Victory number three came up when 4-Y-0 Blissful Hall/Motoring Sassy gelding Shelby Cruisin greeted the judge in the KC Tools Pace for C3 to C5 class over 2190 metres.
Enjoying the run of the race trailing the poleline leader and favourite Thywillbedone which weakened rather badly, Shelby Cruisin when extricated into the clear, charged home to score from Johnny Tee and Shakatomic in a rate of 2-01.8.
Nathan Jack took the reins aboard 5-Y-0 Dream Away/Bonnie Cheval gelding Some Kinda Cheval in the Mildura Saturday Night December 15th Pace for C1 class over 1790 metres, steering him to an all of the way victory in a rate of 1-59.8 over the hot favourite The Dip and One Dog One Bone. Shane elected to drive Our Lilly Maloane which was unplaced.
The fifth winner for the night was 4-Y-0 Courage Under Fire/Ameridona gelding They Call Me Chaos in the Tsubaki Pace for C2 class over 2190 metres, leading throughout from the pole in accounting for Please Dont Talk and Caulonia Babe in a rate of 2-01.
Prior to the meeting, it was thought that the Douglas team would dominate the night with several highly fancied runners, however it wasn’t to be, with not one member of the stable able to win.
