Promising Canberra stayer Contaminated posted one of the biggest wins recorded at Corowa in recent times on Tuesday.
Contaminated ($5.50) bolted in to score by 8 lengths in the Cann's Bus Lines Class Two Handicap (1600m) as Canberra trainer Nick Olive enjoyed a winning double.
Canberra jockey Brendan Ward took the four-year-old to the front and he gapped his rivals in the straight to score by a whopping margin.
The eight-hour round trip paid off for Olive and Ward, as they combined for a first-up victory on Polar Star ($8.00) in the Sheldon Signs Class Two Handicap (900m) earlier in the day.
Olive was pleased to see Contaminated thrive at his first try over the mile.
"He's been crying out for it for a long time now, we just had to find the right race so we were pretty confident coming here," Olive said.
Meantime, young Jerildere-based apprentice Tyler Schiller produced a gem of a ride to score on Bianbarnie ($9.50) in the Morris Wines Benchmark 58 Handicap (1400m) for his boss Phil Sweeney.
Wagga jockey Nick Heywood also produced a top effort to score on the Donna Scott-trained debutant Love Generation ($9.00) in the Corowa Race Club Maiden Plate (1400m).
