JACKSON TAKES OUT A THRILLER OF SHEPPARTON TROTTERS CUP TO SHOW THERE’S A GOOD GENE POOLE

Veteran Stanhope breeder-owner Mac Poole experienced one of his biggest thrills in harness racing when his smart trotter Jackson Square caused an upset win in last Friday night’s Saddleworld Shepparton Trotters Cup.
