Longford trainer Angela Brakey celebrated a double at Launceston on Wednesday night courtesy of a pair of half-brothers.
She opened her account with White Hawk, who took the benchmark 84 handicap over 2150 metres after enjoying a nice trail just off the pace under Singaporean hoop Troy See.
The Tough Speed gelding was backing up, having made an unsuccessful trip across Bass Strait to contest a benchmark 80 handicap at Caulfield over 2400m last Saturday.
Brakey completed her double with the highly promising White Cliffs, who scored his third win from as many outings this prep, charging home from worse than midfield under Brendon McCoull to take the benchmark 66 handicap over 1420 metres.
Both of Brakey’s charges are out of former talented staying mare White Yard, who placed in the 2011 Launceston Cup.
