8 March 2011 - Inter Dominion aspirant Villagem sizzled at Lords Raceway Bendigo on Monday night, trialling anti-clockwise in preparation for this month's Championship in New Zealand. Driven by trainer Lisa Miles Villagem trialled with a galloping pacemaker driven by her husband David and cornered like a greyhound around the 1000 metre Bendigo track. David Miles clocked the Chariots Of Fire champion to pace his last half mile of a 2400 metre trip in under 55 seconds. "He actually went better than you think," a smiling Miles said after the trial. "He came home the last half in 54.9." Veteran track clockers had the 5yo pacing the last quarter in a sizzling 26 and change. "Lisa said he cornered super which is great news because we were unsure before this trial and his one at Melton whether he would go the reverse way,he has done it well twice now, " Miles said. Villagem will have another trial going the reverse way at Kilmore next Tuesday before heading to Auckland on Saturday week.
