TASMANIAN harness racing trainer Ben Yole unveiled a potential star filly at Tattersall’s Park in Hobart on Sunday night by the name of Last Flight In.

The New Zealand-bred three-year-old drew the outside of the front line in the Stirling Stockfeed Pace (2090 metres) for 3C0-3C1 assessed pacers but made light work of the task to cross the field and lead.

Once in front driver Mark Yole ensured a solid tempo and she went on to score by over 11 metres recording a mile rate of 2.00.02.

It was the filly’s first Australian start and one that trainer Yole was supremely confident she would win.

“We’ve only had the filly for a week but in that time she showed me enough on the training track that she would win this race,” Yole said.
