Weir Has Australian Record In Sights
Champion Victorian trainer Darren Weir is within reach of the Commonwealth training record of 334 winners after a double at Mornington on Monday and a winner at Geelong yesterday, reports AAP. Weir saddled up Siren's Reward and Rising Hope on Monday and Luisa Maree yesterday to boost his season tally to 307. The Ballarat-based horseman is only the third trainer to pass 300 winners in a season with David Hayes training 306 in 1991/92 and John Hawkes setting the Commonwealth benchmark of 334 in 2002/03.
