DARRYL Gollan has had many special racing moments during a colourful training career.

On Saturday he added another to the list when he teamed with apprentice Travis Wolfgram for a winning Clifford Park double.

Gollan and Wolfgram opened the meeting with race-to-race victories, courtesy of Majestic Charmer ($2 fav) and Tamamushi ($6).

Majestic Charmer did best in a driving finish with runner-up Handful Of Silver ($4.60) to score a short-head victory in the Welcome All Xmas Parties Maiden Plate (1200m).

Tamamushi fought on strongly after racing prominently throughout to hold off Encouragable ($15) for a short-half head win in the Vanderfield Machinery Class 1 Handicap (1100m).

Wolfgram's double ended an eventful week for the 18-year-old.

After scoring his first provincial win at Clifford Park seven days earlier, Wolfgram travelled to his temporary base at

Tamworth to kick home a winner at Armidale on Monday before returning permanently to Toowoomba midweek.

Twenty years ago Gollan was helping launch the successful career of Wolfgram's father Phillip.

"His father was the best and hardest working apprentice I've ever had," Gollan said.

"Travis is a good little rider as well and I owed him a winner.

"Before he got his license he used to come out and ride a couple for me so it's great that we've been able to kick off with two winners together."

Tamamushi earned an end-of-year break with her plucky display.

The four-year-old's win came at her third successive Saturday start.

"She should have won at Goondiwindi two starts back when she came from last to run third and then she won with a fair bit in hand at Texas last week," Gollan said.

"That was a pretty handy field she beat here today, but Travis rode her to the letter of how I thought the race would pan out.

"She's done a good job and has earned herself a little break now."

Wolfgram completed a memorable night with a third win on the seven-race card aboard Women Be Shopping in the Neil Mansell Group QTIS Two-Year-Old Maiden Handicap (1050m) for Toowoomba trainer Paul Wallace.

Women Be Shopping ($1.80 fav) ran up to her good early season trial form with a tough debut win when she overcome a wide run throughout to down Pound On Tubby (4.00) by 2¼ lengths.

* CLIFFORD Park premiership leader Skye Bogenhuber resumed riding at the Sunshine Coast yesterday after her three-week suspension ended at midnight on Saturday.
