SIBLINGS really can be a pest.
A day after noting his “annoying” sister cut his joy in half, Wayne Hill has extracted revenge.
Driving a double at Globe Derby on Saturday night, Hill fell less than a metre short of a quartet after being narrowly beaten in two races – both won by his sister Dani.
Fast forward to yesterday’s meeting at the troubled venue and it was Wayne who got in Dani’s way.
Dominating the meeting Dani won six of the eight races on the card.
In what was a near-perfect day, Dani had seven drives, with the other finishing second to you guessed it…Wayne.
And the margin – a metre!
Unfazed by her brother’s interference, Dani described the afternoon “a ripper day”.
“In the morning Brooke (daughter) wrote up my lucky drives as she calls them and asked my which were my best chances,” Dani said. “I told her all of them.
“You can quite often think you have a few good chances, but it doesn’t always turn out that way on the track.
“Yesterday was one of those days when no matter what you did you pulled the right rein.
“Wayne got in the way of the other win, but I had a ripper day so I’m not worried about that.”
Winning the first four races with Calcavado, Goodjet, My Little Comet and James Charles, Dani then sat on the sidelines for the fifth event before scoring with Sure Bet Shannon in the sixth.
Finishing second with Bien Hoa as Wayne scored with Manly Mach, Dani rounded out her sextet with Pay Me Interest.
It’s the third time Dani has registered six wins and a meeting – a record for a South Australian driver.
Dani’s first sextet was in Port Pirie on March 2, 2018 before venturing to Launceston nine days later to win six races to claim the inaugural Australian Reinswomen’s Championship.
