Longford trainers Ken and Tanya Hanson capped a perfect day when Bold Magic got up in the last stride to win the Maiden Plate at Mowbray on Wednesday night.
Earlier in the day, their promising four-year-old And Beyond had maintained his unbeaten record with a fourth straight win in the $50,000 Benchmark 64 Handicap at Sandown.
It's been a great day ... we're absolutely proud of And Beyond- Trainer Tanya Hanson
And Beyond worked home strongly from back in the field to score by a narrow margin and land a $4.60 to $2.10 plunge.
"It's been a great day - it's not often you can win in two states on the same day," Tanya Hanson said.
"We're absolutely proud of And Beyond - it was a really solid win."
Hanson said the gelding would travel home by boat on Friday night and spent a fortnight in the paddock.
"While he's having a break we'll discuss our options and see where we go from here," she said.
And Beyond was ridden by apprentice Kyle Maskiell, a grandson of Ken Hanson and Tanya's nephew.
Another family member played a behind-the-scenes role in Bold Magic's win.
Melbourne-based jockey Jason Maskiell, Kyle's brother, recommend the mare as a likely prospect for Tasmania when he heard her previous owners were looking to move her on.
"She's been a good buy," Tanya said.
"We were pleased with her first run for us when she made up a lot of ground to finish fourth.
"She got revved up before that race but was more relaxed tonight.
"She had a gallop with And Beyond during the week and was competitive so we were confident she'd run well."
Bold Magic and And Beyond were the stable's only two runners for the day.
Owner Wayne Roser believes he has a cheap buy in Miss Tuppence who easily won the 2YO Maiden at only her second start.
Roser paid $70,000 for the Capitalist filly at the Melbourne Premier Sale last year after she had originally been passed in.
"The prices that the Capitalists are selling for at the moment, we got her very cheap," the owner said.
Miss Tuppence was given a box-seat run by Anthony Darmanin and burst clear in the straight to score by almost three lengths.
Trainer Adam Trinder said options for the filly were now limited.
"She's not a Tasbred so she's not eligible for the good-money 1200m race and I don't see any reason to expose her at 1400m in the Sires Produce at this early stage of her career," Trinder said.
"So we'll probably put her away and bring her back in the spring.
"She's a stakes-placed Capitalist filly so she's worth quite a bit of money already."
Miss Tuppence ran third in the Gold Sovereign on debut.
"We threw her in the deep end at her first start, after she unfortunately missed a run in a maiden a fortnight earlier, and she came out of that race in really good order," Trinder said.
"She now has more of a race understanding about her and she was lovely and strong through the line tonight."
With Siggy Carr forgoing her rides due to illness, it opened the door for Georgie Catania to score an emotional win on Coronation Pia in the Benchmark 66 Handicap.
Catania brought the Carr-trained mare from last with the help of a split between runners in the home straight.
"Siggy has been my best friend for 20 years so it means so much to ride a winner for her," said a teary Catania.
"She told me not to give up on this mare because she'd keep coming so I kept at her even though she was struggling to keep up.
"I had to ride for a bit of luck in the straight but she took a tight gap just like Siggy said she would."
Carr and fiance Troy Baker both missed the meeting after coming down with gastroenteritis.
Leading jockey David Pires also stood down from his rides due to personal commitments.
