THE decision by Tasracing to stage a winter series on the Tapeta track at Spreyton has been hailed a huge success by industry participants.
Sprint and Distance preludes into $25,000 finals were the features over the five-week series that produced capacity fields in all races on most days with the five-meeting series culminating with the running of the $25,000 distance final over 1880 metres on Sunday.
Landstar emerged triumphant in the final over another highly promising stayer Big Time.
The connections of Landstar are now eyeing the $100,000 Devonport Cup as Landstar’s main mission this season.
The Sprint final was won by Innocent Gamble and the Barry Campbell-trained gelding is now in the paddock and will be brought back for the $20,000 sprint race on his home track on Devonport Cup day on January 7 next year.
