    SOUTH Australia’s famed Hill siblings dominated proceedings at Port Pirie last night.

    Continuing their sensational form this season Wayne and Dani Hill captured five of the seven races on the program.

    The pair also registered four placings, including the quinella in the final event.

    Dani completed a double, while Wayne claimed bragging rights with a treble.

    “I had a pretty good book of drives and I was hopeful it would turn out to be a good night,” Wayne said. “Luckily for me it did and I was able to get a few wins.”

    Wayne kick-started the evening by capturing the opening event with The Quick Shadow.

    After working to the lead from barrier three, The Quick Shadow staved off a determined Melegend to score by a half-head, with Princess Cleopatra 12 metres away third.

    Prepared by Tyson Linke, the son of Shadow Play covered the mile in 1:57.5.

    “He’s got a huge amount of ability but is just not quite switched on yet,” Wayne said. “He only does what he has to do.

    “At the 400 he gives you a feeling like he will win by 20 or 30, but only does what’s needed.

    “He is a little more genuine this time in, but just needs to get his head right.”

    Wayne completed a double when the Paul Fidge-trained Lucky Vc cruised to a five-metre win from Julius Franco.

    Atomic Blue Chip was a metre-and-a-half away third in a slick 1:55.4.

    “He went really well,” Wayne said. “He has been doing alright since he got here and on that run he can definitely win his share.”

    Wayne rounded out his treble when For The Corz accounted for Condon and Bettorhavtime in 1:59.4 over 1609 metres.

    Prepared by Aaron Bain, the mare scored at her third run from a spell, having finished second during her first two outings.

    “She hung around the last bend but knuckled down on along the straight,” Wayne said. “She has only had a handful of starts since arriving at Aaron’s stable for a couple of wins and a few placings.

    “I’d say her owners will have a bit of fun with her.”
