Seven Rippin Aces will be looking for back-to-back wins at the Tamworth meeting on Thursday afternoon, for local trainer Jamie Donovan.
Donovan engaged reinswoman Stacey Weidemann to guide the gelding to an all-the-way win at Tamworth last week.
Seven Rippin Aces presented Weidemann with her first winning drive since her nuptials to Clay Smith two weeks prior.
"It was a good drive with a good draw and when you have a good draw, you have to have a bit of a go," said Weidemann on her return to scale.
"Jamie said if he [Seven Rippin Aces] ... had a 100 per cent record of a win every time he led. I had to get another win to add to that record and he did feel like a winner all the way."
Heading straight to the lead from the one barrier, Weidemann set the pace before coming away with a 15.2-metre win over I'm Quite American (Dean Chapple), with Harbour Town (Blake Hughes) another metre away in third place.
"It was even better to get a win in Jamie's late dad's yellow and white race colours,": Weidemann said. "I think I drove in them once before, at Albion Park, so that was the icing on the cake."
Donovan drove Rippin Good Feeling (Mr Feelgood-Willshe Rip) in the race. The gelding finished fourth, in what was his third career start.
"They were my dad's colours and he passed away in 2015, so that's what made me go out on my own," he said. "The odd time they (the colours) come out is when we have two runners in a race."
Donovan made the move from Queensland to work for PKF Accountants in Tamworth and set up his stables just over a year ago.
"When I looked at the field last week he (Seven Rippin Aces) had drawn a good barrier and the other fella (Rippin Good Feeling) has a few tricks up his sleeve, so I rang Stacey and said 'I will give you the easy drive, just lead and win'. And she said 'I will try those tactics.'"
"When we first moved down here, he (Seven Rippin Aces) went really good - I think he had three wins and two seconds in about five starts and then we spelled him and I brought him back.
Donovan has three runners from his stable engaged at the nine-race meeting on Thursday afternoon, with Seven Rippin Aces drawing the seven barrier in the Stockman's Supplies Pace.
Rippin Good Feelin will commence from the three barrier in the Sky racing Active Pace, while Hurrikane Kaycee will commence from the 10 barrier in the Hygain Release Ladyship Pace - with Donovan electing to take the drive behind all of his runners.
