Moonbi trainer Dean Chapple will be heading to Menangle at the end of the month to contest two $20,000 finals.
The Sydney trip has come about as a result of stablemates Esspe Supreme and I'm Quite American acquitting themselves well in taking out two $10,000 heats contested at the Tamworth harness meeting on Thursday.
Chapple engaged reinswoman Lola Weideman to handle the two pacers.
"Lola did a good job and we are always confident when we get her to drive," Chapple said.
The win by the two pacers was also a welcome boost for local owners Mick McIlroy and David Walters who race both horses in partnership.
"The horse himself is only a little fella and the odds are against him with being so small, but he has done a good job" Weideman said.
"I know Dean's horses are fit and ready to go - I'm just happy to drive a winner for him."
Leading the field for the entire 1609 metre race distance I'm Quite American held on to beat Our Girl Harlow (Richard Williams) and Glen Innes Boy (Jack Callaghan).
Starting as $2.30 race favourite, I'm Quite American produced a mile rate of 2.01.4.
"I don't care about the mile rate - it doesn't make the cheque any bigger" Weidemann said.
It was Chapple who suggested the purchase of the American Ideal gelding to McIlroy and Walters.
"I thought the horse would be a good buy - he will do a good job," he said.
"We were worried about leading as he is a nice sit- and-sprint horse and he hasn't been out in front too much, that was our unknown.
"He had a good barrier draw so we thought we would have a crack.
"Lola said he was pulling away at the line.
"He has only missed one cheque since I had him."
Esspe Supreme was not in the punters eye when returning $11 for the win after commencing from the nine barrier and working his way into the race in the Thrifty Car & Truck Rental Tamworth Club Menangle Country Series.
Weidemann found herself racing three-back on the outside running line, while Redbank Olivia (Stuart Glasby) led the field.
Electing to race three-wide around the final turn, Esspe Supreme came away for a 1.8 metre win over Tulhurst Cash (David McKenzie) and Caesareal (Blake Hughes) another 1.5 metres away in third.
"The [field] opened up a bit down the back and he got going then and did the job well," Weidemann said.
"He [Esspe Supreme] was on the ball all the time".
Weidemann produced three winning drives at the meeting after Shazam Shannon from her own stable won the Hygain Micrspeed Pace.
