The win gave long-time stable clients Ross Patrick and Pam Hopper the unique double of Queensland’s premier trotting events.
It was a big night for Patrick, who also owns and bred Will The Wizard who placed third in the QBRED For Life for Colts & Geldings.
Also representing the owner on the night were Miss Ruby Sunshine in the Queen of the Creek, Major Fernco in the Members Cup and Watch Pulp Fiction in the Be Good Johnny Sprint.

2020 has been the breakout year for Majestic Simon, who has started on 22 occasions for eight wins and five minors, with Group status wins in the McNeil and DJA Finals.
Trainer Narissa McMullen had a three-prong attack on the Albion Park Members Cup on Saturday night and would have had an air of confidence surrounding her chances.
With stable newcomer Kensington Bill landing barrier one and last start winner Colby drawn to follow from barrier eight, on paper and with punters Narissa looked to hold a strong hand.
The third of her runners was It Aint The Money and while he was an outsider according to the market, he did boast a smart last start victory.
However, as the race unfolded, unfortunately for McMullen the plans started to go awry.
Kensington Bill was challenged strongly for the lead and eventually crossed by Nimah Franco in a sizzling 35.1 second lead time.
That left plenty of space of Colby to move off the back of Kensington Bill and that is exactly what happened as he was then sent forward to challenge for the lead.
Further repelled, he was now forced to race outside of Nimah Franco as that trio had pulled clear of the chasing peloton.
Meanwhile back in the pack, It Aint The Money had been retired from the race, leaving Colby and Kensington Bill to fly the flag for the stable.
With 600m left to run, Kensington Bill felt the pinch of the early burn as he started to yield ground and with it, Nimah Franco also hoisted the white flag.
That allowed Colby to run to the front and despite the tough run, he entered the home straight with a slender lead.
But the torrid run told the tale, he was soon swallowed by the chasers, yet was mighty game in defeat to be just over eight metres from the winner.
It was a disappointing result for McMullen, her in-form stable missing out as Always A Secret claimed the Members Cup.
