STAWELL - The run of wins continued for Stawell trainers Terry and Karina O'Sullivan, with Haroldhaut resuming from a spell and claiming victory at Ballarat last Thursday.
The stable had to wait until the final race of the day, with the four year old enjoying a good run throughout the Protest Payout Showcase Handicap to eventually record a half length win from his nearest rival, Norton Belle.
Coming off a 19 week spell, trainer Terry O'Sullivan said he was a 'little bit' surprised with Haroldhaut's second career win.
"He certainly showed nice promise but he's a very, very poor track worker," O'Sullivan said.
"He was first up since May, but we're really, really happy with him."
O'Sullivan said Haroldhaut doesn't gallop very fast during track work, giving an indication that 'he is not much good'.
"He goes up another gear in races. It's better than the other way around," he said.
"It was just a good tough win. Nick Hall (jockey) said there was no brilliance, it was really workmanlike and tough."
O'Sullivan expects Haroldhaut to feature in a showcase race at Bendigo in three weeks.
