The Tamworth Harness Racing Club held its first meeting of the calendar year on Sunday which was a successful one for Narrabri trainer Jarred Hetherington.

Hetherington had three starters on the day, one of which was victorious while another raced to a second-place finish.

In the sixth race of the nine-race twilight meeting, Unicho Enchantress raced as a member of the Hetherington stable for just the second time.

The six-year-old mare’s first race as a Hetherington-trained pacer was on boxing day at Dubbo where she won by 13 metres across the 2120-metre distance from pole position.

In Tamworth on Sunday she raced across a 2360-metre distance with Tom Ison in the sulky and secured another 13-metre victory after starting as the $1.08 favourite, one in from pole position.

In that race another Narrabri trainer had a pacer in action.

Peter Shepherdson’s Capital Cullect started three in from pole position and finished fourth, 26 metres behind Unicho Enchantress.

Earlier in the meeting the Hetherington-trained Sir Macador started the 2360-metre race five four in from pole position.

Driven by Ison, the six-year-old gelding raced to a second-place finish in his first start for the Narrabri trainer.

Sir Macador finished 11-and-a-half metres behind the race’s winner Immortal Change.

Driven by Guy Chapple for MP Jones and AR Goadsby, Immortal Change started next to Sir Macador in the number four start position.

Meanwhile the Narrabri Harness Racing Club will have two meetings again in 2020.

The first of those will be a non-TAB meeting on Sunday, April 5, before the club hosts its annual TAB meeting on Easter Monday, April 13.
