STEAM Roller had to survive a protest before the four-year-old was awarded victory in a highweight handicap over 2390 metres.
The Simon Ryan-trained Steam Roller, with Darryl Horner in the saddle, was first over the line in the $22,000 race but Horner's brother Lee, who rode the second placegetter Rex Bell, fired in a protest for interference at the 100-metre mark.
Stewards dismissed the objection giving Steam Roller consecutive wins in highweight races for Ryan.
The popular trainer said Steam Roller will have a short break before being set for jumps races next season.
"I'm going to give Steam Roller a month off," Ryan told The Standard.
"He came to me in excellent condition from Henry Dwyer's stable. I think the change in environment from the city to the country has really helped the horse.
"He's got his jumping tickets and we've schooled him over a few jumps and he goes well. I want to get him ready for the maiden hurdle at next year's Warrnambool May Racing Carnival.
"He looks an ideal jumping type. Steam Roller settles well in his races and can stay, which are great pointers for a horse that is bound for a jumping career.
"I've got to give credit to Darryl Horner. He does a bit of work for my stable and is a great asset to other local trainers."
Steam Roller has won more then $33,000 in stakemoney for his connections from the two starts he's had for Ryan.
