SIX months ago Larry Eastman had never trained a Group One winner in 40 years of trying.

Now he has four.

The Shelbourne harness racing trainer celebrated a career-best performance on Saturday night when he won three Group One races at Melton.

Eastman took out the two three-year-old Vicbred Super Series finals with Menin Gate and Morton Plains respectively, while Milly Perez capped off the night with a stunning performance to win the Vicbred Super Series final for four-year-old mares.

“To be honest, I can’t describe this feeling,’’ Eastman said.

“It was just one of those nights where everything fell into place. All three horses were driven perfectly by Chris (Alford).

“We went into the night thinking Menin Gate was our best chance and we were just hoping we could pinch one win. To win all three is just amazing.

“It probably hasn’t sunk in yet. It’s a great thing for the people who own the horses. They’re not only long-time clients, they are friends.

“Menin Gate and Morton Plains have similar ownership, while a good percentage of Milly Perez’s owners are first-time owners. Those owners will cherish those Group One wins forever.”

Menin Gate and Morton Plains are raced by a syndicate of Birchip-based owners.
