WELL BRED three-year-old pacer Karalta Dazzler is starting to live up to his name with his latest win in Launceston tonight the gelding’s third in succession.

With regular driver John Walters in the sulky, Karalta Dazzler stepped well from the standing start and gradually worked his way to the lead down the back straight clear of Prettyboytroy that was eased out of the speed battle.

Walters ensured a solid tempo and when he asked the gelding for the big effort at the top of the home straight he quickly established an unbeatable led and went on to comfortably score from Margin Girl with Helen Wheels working home well for third ahead of On The Deuce.

Karalta Dazzler is trained by Kent Rattray who prepares the gelding for his parents Wayne and Gaye who bred him from their broodmare Karalta Crown that produced the gelding from an AI mating with Stonebridge Regal.

It was the second leg of an early double for Walters who also guided the Ian Abraham-trained Vincent Can Go to victory in the opening race on the 11-event card.
