What an amazing run leading Victorian trainer Darren Weir has encountered over the past fortnight. When Ruadhan stormed home to win the final race at Ballarat last Sunday, it was Weir's 11th since November 7. And there were eight meetings in that time he never had a runner. In the past week, he's had nine winners including four doubles. Extra Spice and Ultra Cool was the first double for the week at Donald on November 14 then the following day, Argenore and King Buddy won at Warrnambool. Last Friday at Stawell, his two winners were De Lady Royale and Bohika. Next day Weir won first-up with Flying Hula at Kilmore then at his local meeting on Sunday, he won with Gotta Take Care and Ruadhan. With five winners in a space of three days, Weir has now leapt to equal fifth place on the National Trainers' premiership and second on the Victorian Trainers Premiership.
