J Scott Latest News


Tres Vite was untroubled to remain unbeaten in two New South Wales starts  for the Mark Jones stable when scoring again, this time at Bathurst on Wednesday, June 27, in a career best 1:55.8 rate for the 1730m.

Sent out a $2.70 joint favourite from the inside of the second row, Tres Vite had a super run through early to trail leader The Only Child, who led from the ace.

With a sprint lane run for Ellen Rixon in a NSW Rising Stars Heat, she zipped through to win by 2.7 metres from outsiders, Jiggy Rhythm and Volaticus, with joint favourite Better Be Donna, fourth after being forced to race in the open.

Tres Vite (3f Bettor’s Delight filly-Tres Bien Franco), had last week won her NSW debut at Penrith in a 1:57.4 rate over the 1720m.

The NSW team notched a winning double at Bathurst with Getarattleon delivering as a hot $1.50 favourite in the Bedwells Feedbarn Three-Year-old Pace.

Getarattleon, a Raging Bull gelding form Lady Moonlight, raced by the Taieri Exports Perth Syndicate, and the Hale The King Racing Syndicate,  made the most of a good trip on the outer from Chris Geary, holding Hannah Mae by 1.8 metres in a 1:57.5 rate for the 1730m.

This was his first win in five starts in NSW, having been the runner-up at Menangle on May 29, and again at Penrith last week.

Getarattleon had won a maiden at Manawatu in April for the stable, before crossing the Tasman.

His race record stands at 15 starts for two wins and six placings.
