MORUNDAH trainer David Druitt won’t be forgetting the treble he achieved at Wagga on Tuesday night.

Druitt took three pacers to Wagga’s eight-race card and all three got the job done. What made the feat even more special was the fact all three winners were driven by different members of the family.

David drove one himself, while sons Ross, 21, and Jordan 19, also steered a winner home in a night to remember for the Druitt family.

Im Tilly Devine ($12.30) and Pure Cam ($12.00) got home at big odds for Ross and Jordan, then David scored on The Feela ($4.20) later in the night to complete the treble.

“I was really happy, it was a good night,” David Druitt said.

“I actually went to Leeton last week thinking all three could win, but only one of them got the lucky run, and the others got a second and third.

“I thought (at Wagga) all three could win if they got the run to suit, and it did. All three got the right run, it happens.”

Druitt said the fact he and two of his boys shared the treble made it special.

“Definitely, I’ve drove a couple of trebles before, and I might have had one as a trainer, but it is special to be able to do it with the kids,” he said.

“They all love what they’re doing. They all like to drive a good horse, it’s just that we don’t get them that often.”

Druitt said all three wins were pleasing.

“All three were very gratifying in one way or the other,” he said.

“Pure Cam sprinted quick and showed a bit of class.”
