Sprent owner-trainer Denise Williams set the scene for a night of doubles at last Monday’s night feature meeting in Launceston when preparing two winners with littermates Arcadian Roxy and Our Jersey Girl.

It was Denise’s first ever winning double recorded as a trainer since taking our licence over 12 months ago.

Best away from box five in the GAP Tasmania grade 5 over 278 metres, Arcadian Roxy quickly put paid to her rivals in coming away to defeat the likes of Kubota Girl and Blackpool Oakley by 1-1/4 lengths in 16.36s.

Later in the night, $3.90 second elect Our Jersey Girl, winner of three races from 15 starts, had led right throughout from box rise when beating Little Mac and Proper Law in a slick 16.12 seconds, in scoring by three quarters of a lengths.

The winning pair are from the Hooked On Scotch – Zipping Jersey litter bred locally by Darryl Fitzsimmons.

“I was really impressed by Arcadian Roxy’s performance; she does tend to run wide coming around the bend all the time, she was pressured by another dog in the race, it was a convincing effort,” Denise Williams said.

“You only need to look at her form to see she has been running well previously and the luck was on our side.”

Both Arcadian Roxy and Our Jersey Girl was purchased in a package deal from Latrobe trainer Mick Sherriff, putting together five victories for Denise, giving her nine winners overall for the year in Tasmania.

“Zipping Jersey was very impressive; her sectional times were fantastic on the night,” the trainer mentioned.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled with getting a winning double, unfortunately I’ve been having back issues for a while now and it’s a challenge, everyone at the track is really helpful to me and I can’t thank them enough.

“As long as they come off safe every race, that’s my main concern.

“I do enjoy being involved in greyhounds.”

Exeter trainer Anthony Bullock was also successful recording a winning double courtesy of Tsar Bell in the LGRC Distance Championship Final and Spotted Law claiming his second career victory in the last event.
