A Mornington trainer’s decision to relocate several horses to Albury returned an early dividend when Broadstone was a winner on Tuesday.

Mitchell Beer is not a fan of synthetic tracks, prompting his search for turf surfaces during winter.

He accepted an offer of stabling at the Albury course.

Broadstone, ridden by Kayla Nisbet, coasted to the lead halfway along the straight and went on to defeat The Big Sheila by two lengths in the Maiden Plate (1175).

‘‘He will probably back up at Wagga next Monday,’’ the trainer said.

There are ambitious plans for Nagging, winner of the Albury Open Handicap (1600m).

Trainer Mark Gee said the mare would head to the Sapphire Coast Open Handicap (1600m).

Nagging, ridden by Michael Heagney, beat Fireman Sam I Am by a length with Class Clown third.

Apprentice Patrick Scorse, son of former jockey John, landed a double, scoring on Eastern Pegasus and Squidensquizz.

The last race on the Wagga program on Saturday was decided in the stewards’ room.

A protest - second against first - was upheld resulting in Luke Pepper trained Ticked Off ridden by Akira Kajiya being awarded the Class 3 Handicap (1000m).

Dane Slugger (Michael Heagney) was relegated to second.

Richard Bensley took the riding honours with a double.

He won on Landmine ($2.25 fav) in the Class 1 (1200m) and Tableaux.

Eight year-old Tableaux ($18) prepared by Russell Green defeated Snippet Of Gold by a half head in the Estella Rose Cup (1200m).

●●●

Follow - Falerina: Two wins from three starts in first preparation; started favourite when resuming in Randwick Class 3 (1000m) but began slowly then blocked on the rail until the last 25m, finishing fifth.

●●●

Coming winners: Bel Sonic resumed with second at Caulfield.

King Tycoon gained clear running too late when second at Pakenham at his third start.

Miss Leonidas overcame a slow start for dominant win at Ballarat.
