Despite being forced wide when the hot favourite My Valerie galloped straightening up, Lindy Vale rallied again and got up to beat the David Jack-trained and driven Zharis Idol, with the NSW trotter Verbier filling the minor placing.
Lindy Vale, who had only one third placing in 10 previous starts, was a 33-1 shot on the tote, but Crossland gave the trotter a chance of running a good race if she could repeat her promising effort in a trial since she took over the training of the filly.
‘‘It was more or less just seeing what happened really because I haven’t had her long, but I thought she would go okay if she didn’t do anything wrong,’’ Crossland said.
Crossland is aiming Spidergrace and Keep Me Tender at the NSW Foundation trotting series that has heats at Menangle on Tuesday and some of the lucrative Victorian three-year-old races.
While Crossland has produced a training double before at Echuca with pacers, this is the first time she has geared up and drove two trotting winners at a meeting.
