LAYING well back in the gig, American driver Tim Tetrick was a cool and composed figure as he saluted with Weliveinhope at Wagga last night.
With an incredible record of more than 8000 wins, Tetrick has brought an extra bit of class in his first attempt at the World Driving Championships.
Sitting second coming into the three leg of heats at Wagga, a double keeps him well contention for the overall win.
Tetrick scored with the Shaun Snudden-trained fily before bringing up a race to race double as Glenburn Addy came from the second row draw to bring up her second win in four days.
Wagga is certainly different to the tracks he’s become one of the superstars of the sport on, but he’s enjoyed his stay.
One of the biggest difference is having horses drawn off the second row, but he quickly adapted to win with Glenburn Addy scoring from a trailing draw.
“It’s nice and the people are great,” Tetrick said.
“The track is a little tighter than most tracks I’ve been to and the trailers make you drive a little different.
“It’s county fare racing at it’s best.”
French reinsman Tony le Beller took out the last heats with Harlequin Bromac and has moved into third, six points behind Tetrick.
