It was almost a case of history repeating for trainer Glenn Stevenson and jockey Daniel Ganderton at Spreyton on Sunday, with the stewards making the final decision on Lesnar's placing for the second race in a row.
But unlike his visit to Mowbray earlier this month which saw a protest upheld and the seven-year-old grey relegated to second, Lesnar had the stewards decide in his favour this time around to take out the Benchmark 66 Handicap over 1350m.
The protest was for interference in the home straight with the second-placed Azara, ridden by Georgie Catania, but stewards dismissed it soon after.
Stevenson said Lesnar, who was the $1.80 favourite, has a habit of wandering about when he hits the front.
"He wanted to stop and roll out today, but he has been hard work for a long time," the Wesley Vale trainer said.
"The blinkers will go on him next time and we'll just keep looking for races for him here at Spreyton, but he backed up well from his run at Mowbray."
Lesnar's victory was part of a winning double for Stevenson and Ganderton, with Stevenson taking out a Class 1 Handicap over 1150m with Rising Hsiang, while Ganderton saluted with Gee Gee Devonboy in a Maiden over 1009m.
Also dealing with some pre-race adversity was the Leanne Gaffney-trained Cabarrus, who overcame two late jockey changes to take out the Benchmark 78 Handicap over 1350m.
With original jockey Bulent Muhcu out injured, leading hoop Brendon McCoull was booked to take the ride.
However, McCoull was unable to ride at the meeting, leading to a switch to Daniel Ganderton, who was then swapped for Mehmet Ulucinar when Ganderton couldn't reach the required weight.
"Mehmet's ridden Cabarrus in a trial at Spreyton a while back and gets on really well with Bulent, another Turkish rider," Gaffney said.
"So I just said to Mehmet to talk to the horse in Turkish and he won't know the difference."
Spreyton trainer Adam Trinder and jockey Anthony Darmanin also teamed up for a winning double.
