Top Gippsland trainer Peter Giles (pictured right) has claimed his fourth Castle of Mey Trophy since the annual event moved from Albury to Traralgon in 2004.

Shamus O’Jar [$12.40] collected a $3,300 first prize as ahead of Smoke Home, who is trained by Giles’ daughter Lauren Gorman, while the Giles-trained Simply Charlie ran third,

The Castle of Mey Trophy has a rich history that was founded by the now defunct Albury Greyhound Racing Club in honour of the Queen Mother.

Giles’ other winners of the race are Regal Ricky [2004], Spence’s Shadow [2008] and Ashlee’s Patch [2009].
