TASMANIA'S premier training combination of David and Scott Brunton equalled their best day at the office when they prepared half the card at Tattersall's Park in Hobart on Saturday.
Team Brunton saddled up five winners on the 10-event program and it included a courageous effort from Streetwise Savoire to defeat Ollie's Gold and local hero Geegees Blackflash in the Open Handicap over 1600 metres.
The haul comprised wins from Lander Dollar (Kodie Grace), Great Delight (Chantal Willis). Moonless, Bag of Monkeys and Streetwise Savoire with in-form rider David Pires partnering the last three of the Bruntons' bag of winners.
The five-win haul took Team Brunton's season tally to 54-1/2 to be 22-1/2 wins clear of their nearest rival Adam Trinder with Barry Campbell's double (Calavera and Arenzano) edging him closer to second spot with 30 winners.
Jockey David Pires partnered the last three winners for the Bruntons (Moonless, Bag of Monkeys and Streetwise Savoire).
