Harness Racing: Grizzly Montana grinds out win

Grizzly Montana made it three wins on the spin when grinding out a hard-fought victory at Hobart, much to the delight of reinsman Nathan Ford, who praised his charge for the gritty performance.

Ford produced the perfect drive when keeping Grizzly Montana up near the front throughout the contest before striking late to take the win.

Grizzly Montana too good

Grizzly Montana, who is trained by Bianca Heenan, proved to be way too good for his rivals with a late burst of speed to wrap up a 7metre win.

“It was a tough win but I thought it was a drop in grade for him, last start he sat parked up in Launceston and they bowled along a bit,” Ford told reporters after the race.

“He has been very honest since he joining Bianca’s stable, you can drive him with a sit or put him into the race, and he is even better when he leads.”

“He was as good as we could get him I thought,” said trainer Ivan Belbin post-race. “He has been drawing the backline all the time, so I thought if I ran him out of class, he would get off the front and once he drew the front, I thought he would be hard to beat.”
