Tiger Tara set for Miracle Mile

New South Wales trainer Kevin Pizzuto has high hopes top New Zealand pacer Tiger Tara can earn him his first start in the Miracle Mile.

Pizzuto has been ranked among the top trainer in NSW but so far a start in the state's pinnacle harness event has eluded him.

However that could be about to change thanks to his recent Kiwi import, who has been mixing it with the best of them across the Tasman this season.

The entire is currently the top fifth performer in New Zealand this term behind the likes of champion pacer Lazarus, Our Dream About Me, Ultimate Machete and top trotter Monbet.

"I originally brought Tiger Tara for breeding purposes and help grow breeding in New South Wales," Pizzuto said.

"He's a nice horse and feeling well within himself. He has been racing well enough over in New Zealand for me to consider aiming him at the Miracle Mile."

Pizzuto has nominated the son of Bettors Delight for the Miracle Mile qualifying sprints at Tabcorp Park Menangle this Saturday night.

The winners and second placegetters of the Canadian Club Sprint and the Allied Express Sprint will receive an automatic invitation to the 50th edition of the Miracle Mile on 25th February.

The only horse to confirm a position in next Saturday week's ultimate speed test is Lazarus following his career best performance in the Chariots Of Fire last Saturday night.
