    RISING star reinsman Brad Chisholm registered a personal milestone in Ballarat last night.

    Having three drives on the card Chisholm completed a perfect trip to the track to notch his initial treble.

    “It is my first treble, so I’m rapt,” Chisholm said. “I felt each would run a good race, but I wasn’t expecting each would necessarily win.

    “They got the right runs on the night and were able to make the most of them.”

    Chisholm kick-started his ideal evening by combining with the Faye Gillespie-trained Moreflingthanbling, which gained the run of the race behind the leader, Jahbella, from the pole.

    Angled three-wide around the home turn, Moreflingthanbling claimed the front in the last stride to score by a half-head from Querencia.

    Wingman Fling was a metre-and-a-half away third in 2:03.1 over 2200 metres.

    “That was his first run since December and he went quite well,” Chisholm said. “On that run he shouldn’t have any trouble winning a few more as he gets fitter.”

    Chisholm then came with a sweeping run with Dot The Eye which accounted for Messerati and Betternbetter.

    Prepared by Denis McIntyre, Dot The Eye rated 1:57.9 over 2200 metres.

    “He’s a pretty consistent horse which is always going to find the line hard with a run like that,” Chisholm said.

    Matts Delight rounded out proceedings by scoring in 1:57.8 as Grizzly Montana and Ferocious Son filled the placings.

    Trained and co-owned by Desleigh Parish, Matts Delight was first up since November.

    “I quite like him,” Chisholm said. “He was first-up for six months and won with a bit up his sleeve.”

    Along with the desire of forging a successful driving career, Chisholm – who is stable foreman for the Sonya Smith/Anthony Butt stable – dreams of training a Grand Circuit champion like his parents, Kevin and Alison.

    The elder Chisholms were the driving force behind 1996 Grand Circuit champion Sunshine Band.

    “I’ve been with Sonya and Ants for a few months and I’m loving it there,” Chisholm said. “It’s a great team working there and Sonya and Ants are always helping and offering advice, so I’m learning plenty as well.

    “I’d like to keep driving and make a career out of it and one day down the track look at training as well.”
