JOCKEY Samantha Clenton enjoyed a successful day at the Tamworth Jockey Club on Tuesday.
Clenton began the eight-race card in winning fashion by guiding Rodney Ollteron's Hand it In to victory in race one.
From there, Clenton claimed a double by taking out race three aboard Kris Lees' Dissenter.
The victory gave Dissenter a perfect start to its career, with the win marking the three-year-old bay philly's racing debut.
However, Clenton said the ride nearly didn't go ahead.
"She actually gave me a bit of a kick in the hip as I went to get on," Clenton told Sky Racing's Thoroughbred Central.
"It wasn't the most ideal of starts, but it wasn't going to stop me from getting on.
"She is still pretty raw, but she will certainly improve from that run."
Despite the early setback, Clenton timed her run perfectly to charge past Peter Sinclair's highly-fancied Queen's Song and Wayne Martyn's Smokeball.
"I was pretty happy to sit back and follow the leader for the most part," Clenton said.
"From there, I was looking for her to find a path to get through and once it emerged she was pretty right.
"She was racing pretty green, so she will certainly get better."
Representing Lees at Tamworth was Chris Hull, who said he was pleased with the victory.
"It was a really good win," Hull said.
"She hit the line pretty hard, which was pleasing.
"She's a very nice horse, that was a really good run first up and she will improve from that.
"Sam did a great job and rode her really well."
