Kentuckiana Lodge was in devastating form at Addington on Friday night with three brilliant Carter Dalgety drives landing the stable a winning treble.

A maroon and white wave hit Canterbury’s harness racing headquarters with Cran and Chrissie Dalgety producing Ohoka Le Bron, Rakanotta and Casino Action to win. 

The first driving treble of Carter’s career was set up by a nine-length demolition job from Ohoka Le Bron.

The three-year-old is a free-going type and he showed how powerful can be when reeling off fast sectionals to score.

“That was very impressive, he certainly isn’t the finished product yet but when he puts it together he can be quite devastating,” Carter said. 

“I didn’t really have to ask him to run, even though the 800m and the 400m he was very strong and he did it quite easily.”

“His last run was very good but he was even better tonight in terms of his ringcraft.”

“It is exciting to think he still has quite a bit to learn.”

“He will head off to the big day at Invercargill next, that trip should do him the world of good.”

Rakanotta brought up win number two for the Kentuckiana team when scoring back-to-back victories in race 8.

Carter secured the mare a perfect run in the trail and she took full advantage to register the fifth win of her career.

“She is in the zone at the moment, she loves the 2600m and she was very strong to the line,” Cran said. 

“She will head to the broodmare paddock eventually with her breeding, being a Somebeachmare mare you’d think she would leave some lovely stock.”

“These last two wins have made her record look pretty handy and hopefully we can put a few more on it.”

“With the way she is feeling, you would think she can.”

Casino Action completed the Kentuckiana Lodge treble when scoring the fourth win of his career in race 9.

“He is a very handy horse on his day, he hasn’t had much of a chance to show it lately with a run of very tough draws,” Cran said

“Tonight, he slotted into the 4 hole and took full advantage.”

“We will just see how things play out for him, he may head down south next weekend.”

“We will firm up our plans.”

“He’s in a good space and in a grade he can be very competitive in, so it won’t be hard to find a race for him.”

Krug spearheads the Kentuckiana Lodge team heading to Ascot Park next week. 

After an excellent fourth at Addington last weakened, the pacer is well on target for the Group One Invercargill Cup.

“He has pulled up super after his run at Addington, it wasn’t a super taxing run, it was just what we wanted to see,” Cran said.

“His sectionals were outstanding so by race start time in the deep south, he should be raring to go.”

Krug will start from the 10m mark in the 3200m feature, giving him a key head-start on several of his main rivals.
