Healesville 17th November 2007 - A somewhat disappointing day from the race fields perspective at Healesville on Saturday with two fields of three and one of four after scratchings on the six race program. Although some of the fields were small the racing was competitive with close finishes in two of them. Nonetheless, the weather was again fine, the track performed well and a large crowd was in attendance to enjoy the day.
Riding honours to Kane Harris with a double on the consistent Gleneve and first time picnic starter Sparkly Winks. Like last week with Scold, Charmaine Barnes this time presented Gleneve for a first up win. Racing on the outside of the leader Cape Cod Kid and with 4.5kg more, the 8yo mare fought doggedly to the line to just get up in the last stride. (See video below).
