Matt Cameron mightn’t be an ace at tennis, but what he’s doing at present resembles an electronic superstar of the game.

Cameron is like an energizer bunny on both sides of a tennis net, serving and returning serves as he kicks home winners for the two stables battling out the NZ Trainers’ Premiership title.

Cameron is zig-zagging between Cambridge trainers Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman and Matamata horsemen Stephen Autridge and Jamie Richards, for whom he is stable rider.

He kicked home O’Carol for the Baker – Forsman team at Avondale last Wednesday to take them to six wins in arrears of Autridge and Richards, then the following day he guided Rocksun home at New Plymouth for the latter trainers.

As if to get back in the good books with Baker and Forsman, he won on Morethanlucky at New Plymouth, then switched sides at Riccarton yesterday when winning on the Autridge – Richards-trained Hushed to take the Te Akau team to a seven win lead, on 97 wins.

At Te Rapa today the bulk of Cameron’s rides will be for the two stables. He will ride six of the Baker- Forsman’s nine runners (Craftyeva, Elusive Gold, Gesemi, Inastride, Blue Wagon and Scamp) and two of the four Autridge- Richards starters (Zavistic and Royal Success).

On Sunday Cameron will trek to Oamaru where his mounts include Flirty Gertey for the Te Akau team and at Te Teko next Wednesday he has already been booked for four of the six Baker – Forsman horses (Jigsaw Jane, Ambitious Glory, Forreel and San Miguel).

Yeah, Cameron can’t be accused of sitting on the fence – — he’s leaping it each raceday ensuring a titanic finish to the line for the Trainers’ title.

And in the process he is keeping the pressure on Lisa Allpress in their clash for the NZ Jockeys’ Premiership. He is currently five behind his arch rival.
