Mac up Square dancing

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.

The Mick Blackmore-trained fiveyear-old son of Bacardi Lindy, driven by John Caldow, was a 28/1 shot and finished too strongly for the third favourite Destinee Jenilou and the favourite Il Parata in the $25 000 2690 m Group Two marathon.

Caldow tucked Jackson Square away three back on the pegs in the run and once he got the five-yearold into free running on the home bend he was too strong at the finish for his for his more fancied rivals.
