TALENTED Tasmanian reinsman John Walters secured a race-to-race double in Launceston on Sunday night.

Walters guided Juffs Crossing to a game win before giving Karalta Dazzler a gun run to score impressively in the Furniture City Pace over 2200 metres.

He had Karalta Dazzler settled in the one-out-two-back position before easing the Kent Rattray-trained three-year-old three-wide heading down the back straight the last time with only the well tried Jabber Jawzzz behind him.

Karalta Dazzler (Stonebridge Regal-Karalta Crown) ran home resolutely to score by two metres from Jabber Jawzzz with My Koda Kasper a close-up third.

Karalta Dazzler was bred by his owners Wayne and Gaye Rattray who purchased the dam Karalta Crown from Fred and Pauline Barker at a Tasmanian Yearling Sale.

Karalta Dazzler has won three and been placed seven times from his 17 starts this season and while he didn’t win as a two-year-old he placed six times from 10 starts.
