One Over Da Moon, unbeaten in two starts since joining the Victoria stable of Chris Lang, has the $75,000 Victoria Trotters Derby at Maryborough on July 20 as his next assignment.

The Majestic Son- One Over Kenny colt followed success in The Holmfield at Melton on June 12 with a minor race win at Cobram last week.

His Waimate owner-breeders, Lex and Heather Williams, also bred Mighty Flying Major, the 2-year-old pacer who has won his last three starts, all at Alexandra Park. The Art Major-Fleet's Pocket colt, trained by Ken Barron for Steve Thompson, of Dunedin, is in the care of Peter Ferguson at Cambridge.

Mighty Flying Major changed hands for $ 67,500 at the premier yearling sale last year.

''I am not sure if he will start on Friday night in Auckland or be rested for two or three weeks. He will then be prepared for the Sires' Stakes,'' Thompson said.

''He was not entered for the Breeders' Crown.''
