Former Levin jockey Tony Allan has capped off placings with a double in Queensland.

Allan has been making the most of all opportunities since arriving in Queensland a few weeks ago, some times riding at two meetings in a day.

He made the trip from his Deagon base to Toowoomba on Saturday night and was successful on the favourite Wall Street Tycoon in the first event, then ended the six-race meeting with victory in the last race on the second favourite Aladina, a five-year-old daughter of Darci Brahma and Pavan who formerly raced in New Zealand for her breeder, Sir Peter Vela, when picking up a few placings.

“I was happy to ride a double from four rides,” Allan said. “I’m enjoying it over here.”

Allan was particularly pleased to win on Aladina as he had a long and successful association with Sir Peter before his retirement in 2005.
