KOWHAI MONARCH TROTS 1:57.1 AT MENANGLE

Kowhai Monarch lowered his career mile trot best to 1:57.1 with his second Menangle win for the Mark Jones stable on Saturday, June 3.

The 4YO Monarchy-Surprising gelding pressed forward from the five gate in the Campbelltown Warriors Trotters Mobile, led, trailed at the 400m and finished bet for driver Ashlee Grives.

Kowhai Monarch drew clear by 2.3 metres from fellow NZ-bred Dieu De Lamour (Love You-The Sun Goddess), followed homeby Sunset Tour, Rompers Monarchy and Nickelson.

He racked up his seventh career win from 43 starts, taking his earnings past $A51,000 for owners John and Jill Hartnell.
