Emma Stewart has completed an unprecedented domination of the Vicbred Super Series.
The Cardigan-based trainer, with the support of partner Clayton Tonkin, won five of the six group 1 $125,000 VSS pacing finals – they did not have any runners in the sixth final – at Melton on Saturday night.
This followed a record-breaking 16 heat wins across six age categories and eight semi-finals victories.
“You always go into the series and you think you have a good hand,” Stewart said.
“We were lucky enough to win a fair few heats and then a few semi-finals.
“You always hope you can win at least one group 1 on the night because we've had such a good grounding into it, so to come away with five is a pretty special night," she said.
Stewart saluted with 2yo filly Kualoa ($1.40 favourite), 4yo mare Tell Me Tales ($1.60 favourite), 2yo colt Centenario ($8.30), 3yo colt Poster Boy ($1.80 favourite) and 3yo filly Speak No Evil ($2.40 favourite). Chris Alford drove for of them.
