Sheree Tomlinson’s big week continued at Newcastle on Saturday night.

The youngest female centurion in NZ is also making a name for herself across the Tasman.

In late November, she won the Australasian Young Drivers Championship in Queensland.

This weekend she’s winning in New South Wales, continuing her association with a couple of the Mark Jones and Aaron Goadsby runners, on Saturday and Sunday.

The Overport Lodge junior teamed up with stable runner  Lulu Le Mans for a half-head win in 1:56.7 for the 1609m in the NBN Televison Two-Year-Old Pace.

The $1.75 favourite finished best from three back in the running, and is is expected to derive benefit from the race, her first for nearly a month.

This was the second win in five starts for Lulu Le Mans, a daughter of champion sire Bettor’s Delight and the first foal from big-winning McArdle mare, Elusive Chick.

She was Group Two-placed at her previous two starts at Menangle, finishing third against the colts to Mach Dan in the $50,000 Slingsby Holdings Sapling Stakes on March 2, then second to Eye Can Run in the $50,000 Allied Express Pink Bonnet on March 9.

Sheree reunites with capable three-year-old Barrett at Armidale on Sunday.

Barrett, a luckless eighth in the Bathurst Gold Chalice on March 29, was reined by Tomlinson for back-to-back NZ wins at Roxburgh and Addington on January 4 and February 15.

She also drove him when third to Robyns Playboy and Memphis Tennessee in the Caduceus Club Of Southland Super Nugget Final at Invercargill on March 9.
