TETRICK WINS WORLD DRIVING CHAMPIONSHIPS OPENER
Saturday, February 21, 2015 - from Harness Racing Australia

USA representative Tim Tetrick drew first blood in the 2015 World Driving Championship steering Shannonsablast to victory in the first of the 20 heats.

Tonight’s meeting was conducted at Tabcorp Park Menangle and Tetrick looked at home on the spacious 1400 metre circuit sending his horse forward from the outside barrier. Australia’s Chris Alford was able to get off the inside late to finish second, securing important points.

The second heat saw the international drivers compete on trotters and it was no surprise to see one of the European drivers take out the event. Finland’s Mika Forss drove the Darren Hancock trained On Thunder Road and it fought strongly in the straight to hold off a late challenge from the Guillermo Adrover driven Kyvalley Blur.

Points after the first two heats are:
Tim Tetrick 21
Chris Alford 19
Mika Forss 18
Guillermo Adrover 17
Jody Jamieson 16
Dexter Dunn 12
Knud Monster 10
Vidar Hop 8
Tony Le Beller 7
Pierre Vercryusse 4

The Championship heads to Newcastle tomorrow evening for a further three heats. After tonight’s victory Mika Forss looks set to continue his charge up the leader board. Forss will drive Son Of A Star in heat three, a horse that has won and been placed twice in its past five starts. In heat four Forss will partner Go Lassie Go for Shane Tritton, the leading trainer in New South Wales. While in the final heat of the evening he will drive short priced favorite Saturday.
