Shepparton horseman Steve Boyington has finally enjoyed a welcome change of fortune with the smart pacer he trains and drives, Magic Moment Lombo.
The four-year-old mare saluted in a C1 class race last week at Shepparton and buttered up to win again on Wednesday at Cobram.
Magic Moment Lombo had genuine excuses for just about all of her previous four outings after winning her first race as a four-year-old at Cobram in January.
At Shepparton, Boyington speared Magic Moment Lombo, the $2.60 favourite, straight to the front and she was never in danger of losing, beating Chain Of Gold and Balcony in a district trifecta.
In her Cobram win on Wednesday, Boyington worked Magic Moment Lombo, a $1.60 favourite, to the front mid-race and she held off the Glenn Freeman-trained Border Control and Noel Tyndall-trained Earls Reign in the run to the judge.
Her latest win also took her past the $50
Boyington said Magic Moment Lombo, owned by Yarrawonga’s David and Linda Gale, had her share of fitness issues during the past year as well as some poor draws, but seemed to be back on track.
She finished third to Im Smoldering and Getya Wings Out in last season’s Vicbred Super Series for three-year-old fillies.
Boyington said a heat of the EK Bray Country Cup could be the mare’s next assignment.
The daughter of the great Lombo Pocket Watch, Magic Moment Lombo burst onto the racing scene in 2012 in style by winning her heat and the final of The Lombo at Shepparton at her first two outings.
She has had 27 outings for five wins and six minor placings.
Magic Moment Lombo is out of the Million To One mare, Lady Julie Lombo, who was no slouch on the racetrack with 11 wins.
