The Mark Purdon & Grant Payne trained trotter I Can Doosit was an impressive winner of the $25,000 Listed Lobster Inn Trot (2400m) at South Bay Racecourse, Kaikoura yesterday afternoon.

Last season’s Harness Jewels 4YO Ruby winner looks in for a big season after easily accounting for his rivals in the day’s trotting feature, sweeping to the lead in the straight to defeat The Fat Controller by two and a half lengths with Stylish Monarch and Prince Harry dead heating for third a further half length back.

It was the 5yo Muscles Yankee gelding’s 11th win from just 19 starts with Monday’s prize-money boosting his earnings to $176,898.

Bred and raced by Breckon Bloodstock, I Can Doosit is out of the Chiola Hanover broodmare gem Shezadoosie, who has also left the well-performed Sno’s Big Boy, also by Muscles Yankee. 

Muscles Yankee is once again available through Nevele R Stud this season at a fee of NZ$22,500 + GST.
