Progressive Cambridge mare Hinerangi enhanced her burgeoning reputation as she completed a winning treble at Trentham last weekend, leading all the way over 1600 metres.
Despite resuming from an eight week break from the track, the Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman trained four-year-old never looked in danger as rider Matt Cameron rated her nicely in front to score a comfortable three-quarters of a length victory.
“It’s not easy to lead all the way at Trentham but she ended up getting a pretty comfortable trip where she could dictate to them,” said Forsman. “Matt rated her nicely and she found a good kick when he asked her to go.”
Forsman believes maturity has been the key to the mare’s improved showings, with better things to come next season. “We’re in no hurry with her and will continue to take her through the grades but eventually you would think she could certainly get to stakes company based on what she has shown us.”
