Top NSW driver Cameron Hart is back on home soil driving at Menangle today after adding another interstate feature success to his record. 

The 23-year-old teamed up with New Zealand-born horseman Nathan Purdon to win the Redcliffe Oaks last Saturday night with star filly Amore Vita. 

“She’s got a big motor and was able to run some strong sectionals,” said Hart following the win. 

“She has such high speed and strength as well and she did it all with the ear plugs still in.” 

Amore Vita will chase more Oaks features while Hart will continue to commute to Queensland throughout the Winter Carnival.  

Hart also drove a double at Albion Park on Friday giving him 111 wins for the season. He has six drives at Menangle today.
