Isolating from the pack


Aptly named Isolating claimed the biggest win of his short career at Sandown Park last night.

He brought all of his qualities to the table to win the night’s Vic Bred Series final by over six lengths. His trainer Karen Pitt was proud of ‘Jet’.

“He’s mixed his form and probably been down in confidence, but he began like we know he can and showed great speed,” said Pitt.

He’s owned by 24-year-old Michael Delaroche whose family has a close friendship with Pitt and her partner Wayne Vassallo.

“The family bred the litter, it’s always special seeing the pups grow up and have success. We’ve known the family for a long time, it’s great to be able to share the experience with friends.”

Joining celebrations post-race was Pitt’s son Toby, who recently turned 6-years-old and is rarely seen without his Sherrin footy in hand.

“He loved it. He doesn’t often come to the track but it was an early race and the weather was nice. He’s football crazy, in his mind there’s not much room for anything else!”

Pitt works as a school teacher and has enjoyed having the opportunity to spend more time at the track during the holiday period.

“Recently we’ve had a few more racing than we usually would. As much as I can I get to the track and the holidays do help.”

Later in the night up-and-coming sprinter Levitation set the night’s best time of 29.24 – another statement win from her that suggests she is a star of the future.
