Heavenly Thunder and Sarzana were first two across the line at the recent Moruya meeting. They battled it out up the straight after the tear away leader ran wide off the racing line around the turn.

Kayla Nisbet and Jess Taylor regularly ride both of these mares, swapping every few runs. They both rode perfect races and returned to the mounting yard laughing and joking together.
