Paget bags a hat-trick of winners

GRAFTON jockey Matthew Paget rode a winning treble in consecutive races at the Lismore Turf Club TAB meeting on Saturday.

Paget took out the feature race on four-year-old mare Winfrey ($8) in the $15,000 Woodlawn Cup Benchmark 50 Handicap (1100m).

It is the first time the Stewart Campbell-trained horse has won since a TAB meeting at Ballina in November. In its first run back from a six-week spell, the horse fell in a Class 1 Handicap (1010m) at Murwillumbah on January 4.

Earlier, Paget had his first win on Sound World ($17) in the Class 1 Handicap (1516m). It is the first time the five-year-old has won since December 2013 in Lismore. Sound World had runs afterwards at Murwillumbah and Coffs Harbour before going for a 12-month spell.

Casino trainer Leo Clapham had a win when Paget rode She Tells Lies in the Maiden Plate (1200m).

She Tells Lies ($13) finished in front of We Want Prenup ($4 equal favourite) with High Storm ($6) third.
