BATHURST trainer-driver John O’Shea will launch a twin attack on the Parkes Harness Racing Club’s Three Year Old Pace (2,040 metres) on Wednesday night as two of his fillies return to the track.
Both Grand Zara and Zaras Dance will line up alongside each other in barriers nine and 10 as they have their first starts since impressing at Dubbo on January 31.
Grand Zara will have Amy Rees in the gig as she runs at Parkes for the first time in her nine-start career.
Rees steered her to maiden win at Bathurst on January 3, that run an impressive one given Grand Zara worked three-wide early then sprinted home.
Then in Dubbo to finish the month, Grand Zara was driven further forward, found the lead, and in end narrowly missed out by a half neck.
O’Shea will take the reins of Zaras Dance, a last start winner over a similar trip to the one she will face at Parkes. She has also twice run third this campaign.
