    THIRD generation participant Mikayla Towers registered a “very satisfying” victory earlier this week.

    In what was just her third success as a reinswoman, Towers caused a minor upset with Jaffa in Tamworth.

    What made the success stand above Towers’ two previous wins is it is her first as a member of the all-conquering Teal Team.

    Following her grandfathers, Donald Moon and Jeff Towers, along with her parents, Sarah and David, into the industry, the 18-year-old obtained her driver’s licence last June.

    “I have been around the sport for as long as I can remember,” Towers said. “Both me grandfathers were trainers and drivers and I have continues through Mum and Dad.

    “I got my licence in the middle of last year and this is my first win in teal.

    “It was awesome to drive a winner during this campaign as it is such an amazing cause.”

    Rating 2:02 over 1650 metres, Jaffa scored by eight metres from Bretts Hope, with White Pointer a short half-head away third.

    “She put in a great run in Wagga at her previous run when held up, so I expected her to go well,” Towers said.

    “She got to the line well and had a bit up her sleeve at the finish.”

    Although she will be attending university in Wagga this year to earn a Bachelor in Nursing, Towers plans to continue her passion within harness racing.

    “I am hoping to be able to balance both,” Towers said.
