It took veteran horseman Daryl Miller more than 45 years to land his first metropolitan-class winner as a trainer when Imahero scored as a $37.70 outsider at Gloucester Park last Friday week, but it took him only another seven days to notch his second city-class success when Imahero exploded with a sizzling late burst to win the $20,250 TAB Radio Pace for two-year-old fillies on Friday night.

Imahero, the fourth favourite at $8.70, was driven patiently by Miller’s son Mitch, who settled the filly down in last position in the field of eight before following the $5.50 chance Spiritofanangel to enjoy the perfect one-out, one-back trail as the $3.50 chance Valhalla Angel set a slow pace, with a lead time of 38.4sec. and opening quarters of 34.4sec. and 32.4sec.

Spiritofanangel took a narrow lead 90m from the post before Imahero flew home with a four-wide burst to win by a head. Valhalla Angel was a length farther back in third place.

Imahero, purchased by Miller for $20,000 at the 2021 APG Perth yearling sale, now has earned $32,068 from two wins and three placings from nine starts.

Twenty minutes after Imahero’s victory Miller celebrated another victory, with his three-year-old colt Rellim (Miller spelt backwards) charging home to score a runaway win in a $5000 event at Wagin to give Madeliene Young her fourth win on the program. Rellim is trained by Miller’s son Dean.

Imahero will now be set for feature events for two-year-olds this winter, including the $100,000 Diamond Classic on August 19.
