Top West Australian driver Gary Hall Jnr will make a special appearance at Menangle tonight. 

The 57-time Group 1 winner is no stranger to top level success at Menangle having won the 2013 Inter Dominion with Im Themightyquinn at that track. 

Hall’s main mission in the east is with celebrated WA pacer Mighty Ronaldo in the $210,000 Australian Pacing Gold Bullion Final. 

Hall has done most of the driving on Justin Prentice-trained pacer who has won nine races to date and $351,196 in stakes. 

This is the first time Prentice has campaigned a horse in NSW. 

Hall has also been assigned to drive the Belinda McCarthy-trained The Raconteur in race one and Jimmy Locke for trainer Peter Russo in race two. 

Hall has driven 3417 winners in his career and is one of the most successful drivers in Australian harness racing history.
