    A PAIR of star siblings dominated proceedings at Globe Derby during the weekend.

    With eight races on the card, Dani and Wayne Hill registered doubles to continue their sensational form.

    Wayne’s victories came with Emain Macha and his equally talented half-sister Labella Rock.

    From top producing mare Machabella, the pacers are prepared by astute horseman Greg Scholefield who pleased with their form.

    “They have both come back in great shape this time in,” Scholefield said. “Their work has been terrific and they have been taking that to the track.

    “I couldn’t be happier with them and can’t see any reason why they can’t string a few more together.”

    Beginning quickly to lead from barrier four, Emain Macha experienced little more than a training exercise on his way to a five-metre win from Futurist, with Bulletproof Boy four metre away third.

    Stretching his record to 22 wins and eight placings from 35 starts, the son of Safari rated 1:57 over 2230 metres.

    Labella Rock then upstaged her older rivals when accounting for Steinman and Apache Wind in 1:59.5 over 1800 metres.

    Part-owned by Scholefield the daughter of Pet Rock has notched three wins and a second from six starts.

    “I’m extremely happy with the way she has come back,” Scholefield said. “I have a reasonable opinion of her.

    “She got sick during her last prep and didn’t go as well as can, which is just one of those young horse things.

    “She has come back very well and should have a bit of a future.”

    As for Dani’s double, she scored with Ardens Legacy, which she also trains, and Prince Mcardle, which is prepared by her partner, David Harding.
