Narrandera harness racing trainer Shaun Snudden became only the second Riverina man to train 100 winners in a season after he bookended Albury’s nine-race card on Friday.
Snudden went winless at Young’s meeting on Wednesday night but started in the best possible fashion as Monivae put in a tough effort to score.
He had other chances to bring up the milestone but had to wait for the last race.
Classiemahon crossed from barrier six and never looked like getting headed as he strolled to a 6.5-metre win.
It was the entire’s 10th win of the season and Snudden was pleased to bring up the win with him.
“It’s a nice horse to bring it up with,” he said. “He's been a super horse for us so it’s good that it’s with him.
“They’ve been a good group of owners to me, I picked it out for them and he’s been a good buy.”
With the milestone under his belt, Snudden is looking to get on with the rest of the season.
“I’m pretty happy with that,” Snudden said.
“It’s a bit surreal I suppose but it’s good to get it for sure.”
Snudden had been left stranded on 97 wins for the past two seasons but broke through the mark with almost two months remaining in the season.
He joins Euroley trainer David Kennedy as the only two men to train 100 wins in the season from the Riverina.
Kennedy finished with 127 winners in the 2010/11 season.
