Greg Sugars picked up three winners at Tabcorp Park, Melton on Saturday night to help raise more funds for the McGrath Foundation.
Sugars saluted with La Captain, Momentslikethese and Triple Eight to boost the coffers of the foundation. Each victory earned a Racing For Pink donation from Geelong Harness Racing club members.
Then Sugars also confirmed that he and his wife, trainer Jess Tubbs, will be donating an extra $1000 to the foundation that supports those with breast cancer.
“It’s been a sensational month,” Sugars told TrotsVision. “The Pacing For Pink campaign is phenomenal and thankfully I’ve had a sensational month and so has our stable.
“Jess and I did say leading into tonight we had a few good chances, if we were able to get the score on the board, we’re happy to donate an extra $1000 to Pacing For Pink campaign.
“It’s been a terrific month not only for me as a driver but for the stable as well, so more than happy to put the hand in the pocket and add a bit more to the tally.”
Meanwhile Sugars hailed the performance of Triple Eight who put some troubled times behind him to beat Bulletproof Boy by seven metres.
“He’s been a wonderful horse to us for the last 12 months or so,” Sugars said. “It was a bit of a rocky start to his campaign when he first joined our team, things weren’t looking all that well at one point of time but he came back from a break really well last time around and performed really well in some big races. So far so good for this preparation.”
