Chris drove drove Big Riddle, I Want Candy and Rockstar Ruler to victory for his uncle, Peter Shepherdson, who trains all three in a family effort.

Shepherdson was also celebrating the win of Big Riddle in the TAB南京夜网.au pace (1609m).

Chris Shepherdson also had a win away from the track recently when he and wife Elizabeth welcomed six pound 3 ounce Cohen Robert Shepherdson into the world.

“They are both fit and healthy,” Chris Shepherdson said of the mother and son combo.

“I hope he continues to bring me luck.”

Big Riddle led into the straight with race favourite Rosie O’Rourke and Geraldene Shannon becoming entangled on the turn and Peter Missen almost falling from the gig behind the favourite.

“I’m not saying we would have won it but Big Riddle was travelling and we would have gone close.

“He still had a bit left and Rosie had had a hard run. We’ll take that though.”

Then followed I Want Candy and Rockstar Ruler to make it a special day.

It was also a good day for two of the three Ison brothers when Tommy won the first race and older brother Sam the second.

Tommy drove Diamondsnstones for Inverell owner-trainer William Miller to win the Peter Jackson Bookmaker Pace (1609m) before Sam combined to win the Northern Inland Credit Union Competitive Stakes (1980m) for owners Rod and Dianne Hazell with four-year-old mare Pirates Pearl.
