Smart's fourth Gift win part of Coastal trifecta

BY MARTIN AGATYN

IT MAY come as no surprise, but the Rosebery Carnival is Cooee sprinter Brendan Smart's favourite event.

On Saturday Smart became the most successful sprinter in the history of the carnival, winning the MMG 120m Rosebery Gift for a record fourth time.

Running off a mark of 11.25m in the final, Smart hit the lead with about 30m to go and never looked in danger as he added the 2011 Gift to the sashes he also won in 2005, 2007 and 2008.

Highclere runner Edward Gates finished second ahead of Wynyard's Jordan Englund, making it a Coastal trifecta.

"It (Rosebery) has always been my favourite carnival, even without the wins, so winning here just makes it even more special for me," Smart said.

"I had a fairly easy heat, but I thought Eddie (Gates) would be hard to beat in the final so it was good to be able to hold him out."

Although he has won over 70m and 100m this season, Saturday's Gift was Smart's first victory over 120m this season.

"It's good to get a 120m win before Christmas and I'm really looking forward to the bigger carnivals now," he said.

"My best season ever was six wins and two placings and I've had five wins and two placings already, so I'm on target for my best season ever."

In other events on Saturday's running program, comeback Preservation Bay sprinter John Howe won the 200m final from Gates, with Gates also forced to settle for his third second placing of the day in the open 400m when he was unable to run down eventual winner Nicole Perry, of Devonport.

Northdown runner Alec Thomas scored the distance double, winning both the open 800m and open 1600m races, while David Chapman won the veterans 300m handicap
