    HEXUS looking to go one better

    Leading New South Walkes freelance driver, and inaugural Harold Park Medal winner, Greg Bennett will be looking to start the New Year on a high.

    Bennett will cross Bass Strait to partner Hexus in the Wrest Point Tasmanian Pacing Championship over 2579 metres today (Sunday January 1).

    I guess I'd better explain. As HEXUS news admin I am subscribed to Google alerts for the keyword "hexus". I get an e-mail every time something with "hexus" in it is indexed. It helps me see when Google picks up our content for news.google.com and also which other major sites are linking too us (as they too get their articles linked up on news.google.com).

    Of course, there would be some bloody New Zealander who named their racehorse HEXUS, so I get completely random racing news every now and then. Sigh.

    Just thought I'd share that with you, dunno why!
