A DOUBLE on Saturday night moved Narrandera trainer Shaun Snudden closer to his first century.
Following East Emperor’s win at Young on Tuesday night, Snudden was successful with Classiemahon and To Infinitynbeyond at Wagga on Saturday to move within seven wins of the milestone.
Classiemahon made it three consecutive wins after worked around to sit without cover in the Riverina Asbestos Pace (1755m).
Despite doing a lot of the work he was still too strong in the end, defeating Katie Lively by 2.7 metres.
Snudden continues to be impressed by the five-year-old.
“He’s been going super,” Snudden said. “He’s been up a long time but every time we step him out he seems to be getting better and I was relly happy with his run.
“He’s getting up in grade and is a C6 now but he’s done a super job and will keep poking along with him.”
To Infinitynbeyond made it a race to race double for Snudden and Corey Bell when he led all the way to score his third win from 18 starts as he cleared away late to score by 10.7 metres.
Snudden has trained the son of Ambro Operative in his last six starts, with only one of those unplaced, but it was the first time regular reinsman Bell drove him in a race.
“It was a good race for him and while he’s been reasonably consistent he’s been a little bit disappointing for what I expected from him, but he did all the work and was still strong on the line,” Snudden said.
Snudden is looking to head to Victoria with the three-year-old as he’s still eligible for a Vicbred bonus.
