With 16 runners going around at the Tamworth Paceway, trainer Lola Weidemann had every chance of taking home a win or two on Sunday.

Weidemann did that and more by training an incredible six of nine winners on the night – two of which started as favourites.

She drove three winners to victory herself while niece Stacey claimed a driving double and sister Julie had the one win as well to round out the set.

Lola’s impressive night started with $1.40 favourite Condafew registering an easy 9.8-metre victory in the opening race and ending, in the last race of the night, on the other end of the odds scale when Stacey drove $37.50 pop Dalacos Empress to a 2.3-metre win.

Apart from Condafew, Lola said prior to the Sunday meeting her other horses were “no stars” but “should go alright”.

”They’re just average horses,” she said.

“They’ve got to have a lot of luck. We haven’t at present got a superstar.”

Funnily enough, the race Lola had the most runners in – three in the Bearing Accessories Tamworth Pace – was one of the three races the trainer didn’t take out.
