JORDAN Leedham steered favourite Fullofmischief to a commanding win in Sunday’s Inglewood Mitre 10 Calder Pacing Cup.
Leading all the way, the victory at Wedderburn by more than six metres took the bay gelding’s career stake winnings closer to $30,000.
It was a return to the winning list for Fullofmichief and Michael Watt, of Tongala, who trains the horse for his parents.
Wins at Shepparton and Cob-ram last month had been followed by a fourth at Echuca a fortnight ago when stepping up to more fancied company.
Fullofmischief started equal favourite with the tote.
The Big End Oftown, although finding support before the race, finishing a very distant eighth after a jerky start from the second row.
Second in the feature event was Good Guy Mack, a neck ahead of Brackenreid.
All betting activity was online for Sunday’s meeting with the track closed to the public under COVID restrictions.
Local club secretary Tom Nisbet used a 1970 club meeting program for race names on the eight-event card, honouring districts and towns around the Wedderburn.
Driver Jackie Barker finished the day with a win in the sulky behind Irish Murphy in the Wehla Pace and two seconds.
The next Wedderburn meeting will be the major cup in February.
