One of Sydney’s leading reinsmen Jack Trainor added another feature race to his resume at Menangle last Saturday night. 

The 27-year-old New Zealand native won the Group 2 J.L. Raith Memorial with the Cran Dalgety-trained Just Remember Me.

It was the three-year-old filly’s first start in Australia since arriving from NZ and she rated a career best one minute and 51.8 seconds to hold off talented filly Madrid who was first up from a spell. 

This success gave Trainor three winners on the night as he also won with his mare Stylish Memphis as well as Dalgety’s star four-year-old Krug.

Trainor worked for Dalgety when living in New Zealand many years ago. 

This result gave Trainor 621 wins as a driver in his career with 10 of those wins obtained this year. 

As a trainer, Trainor has already won the Intercity Pace with Chevron Art this year as well as the Star Trek Final at Bathurst last week.

Trainor is absent from today's Bankstown meeting but has multiple starters at Menangle tomorrow.
