House eager to repeat winning feat

Interisland trainer Michael House will attempt to back up his record-breaking efforts of the past week at Forbury Park tonight.

The starting point for House producing winners at each of last week's four domestic harness racing meetings came at the Dunedin track last Thursday.

House will attempt to repeat the feat this week and returns to Forbury Park tonight with what look to be three strong winning chances.

House's night starts in race 3 with All Money, for the second run of her campaign.

The 5yr-old goes in to the 2200m race following a gallant fourth placing in her first start for more than a year, at Forbury Park, early this month.

''She was pretty hard on herself.

'She pulled hard out of the gate and pulled hard during the running,'' House said.

''It was probably a pretty good job to run fourth, really.''

House, whose principal base is at Prebbleton, said All Money should strip a fitter horse this week, which should make her hard to beat.

Delight In Texas ran a solid third behind Loma Jaccka at Forbury Park last week.

House is backing the mare up again quickly in the hope of cashing in while she is sound and in good form.

''She had some lameness last year and she broke down, so I thought while she is going good we will make hay while the sun is shining.

''I'm hopeful she will go another good race. It doesn't look any harder than last week.''

Honour The Bet will attempt to continue his brilliant winter form at Forbury Park in race 7.

The 5yr-old has produced a win and two second placings in three starts at the track after a successful Manawatu campaign.

House said he expected Honour The Bet to go another excellent race.

However, he was concerned that backing the horse up quickly could have an effect on his performance.

''He is on the backup from last week.

''I have not done a lot with him since last week and the last time I did that with him I was disappointed with the way he found the line, so I may have made a tactical error with him or he may just come out and go a great race.''

House has runners at Addington and Alexandra Park, tomorrow night. The trainer has one runner at Rangiora on Sunday, in Rake.
