    GRAND producer Aratusa Lass will be chasing a perfect strike at Tabcorp Park Menangle tomorrow.

    Already the owner of an unblemished record as a matron with six winners from six starters, Aratusa Lass is on target to have each of her racing progeny be last start winners.

    Major Crocker was successful at Yonker’s Raceway last Saturday night, with Innocent Crocker scoring in sensational time at Albion Park on the same evening.

    Samara Crocker became the broodmare’s third success story by breaking a 23-month absence from the winners’ circle at Kapunda today.

    Trained and driven by David Smith, Samara Crocker led throughout from the pole to score by seven metres from Yes Shesastar, with Kondoolka 12-and-a-half metres away third.

    “It’s been a while so it was good to see her back in the winners’ stall,” breeder-owner Gary Crocker said.

    “She rated 1:58.2 so that is also another sub two minute winner for Aratusa Lass.

    “If we can get up tomorrow at Menangle it’ll be a pretty good few days for the mare.”

    Aratusa Lass’ hopes rely on Adam Crocker which has drawn barrier four in an Australian Pacing Gold heat.

    Prepared by astute horseman Bruce Harpley, the son of Somebeachsomewhere was unplaced upon debut before scoring at his second outing.

    Adam Crocker was runner-up behind Sheza Mamcita at his subsequent start a fortnight ago.

    “It is a pretty even field and he will need a bit of luck,” Crocker said.
