$30,000 PICNIC RACING SERIES 2007 /2008 SEASON READ THE CONDITIONS
Healesville 15th December 2007
A good crowd was in attendance however the weather was not great with drizzly rain on and off throughout the day. The punters had the measure of the bookmakers with horses well in the market winning all races. Racecaller Bill Quinn helped punters on their way by selecting 4 of the 6 winners which were available in Peter Bon's Picnic Race Guide.
The first race went to Fenaughty Lad who got out to good odds from its opening quote. Two starts ago the horse was unlucky when its saddle slipped and then ran over an unsuitable 1200m at its next start before getting everything to its liking and scoring a good win and giving Kara Anderson her second race win.
The second saw Court's Order jump quickly, go to the front and completely outclass the opposition. In the third, Brownie's Gold went on with the job after winning last week at Balnarring and just got up to beat the consistent Tears in the Rain who was the omen bet for the day. A lightly raced horse that appears to have more wins in store given they way it got to the line.
Hula Native lived up to its strong form line of last week where is was just beaten by the top mare Gleneve in a fast time. With no Gleneve in the race today Sean Cerchi who was returning to picnic races took the 8yo gelding to the front for an easy win and another well backed horse got the prize.
Race five saw the ever consistent Warrigal Tom return to the winners list after an unlucky race last start to win its 3rd race from 4 picnic starts at the good odds of $5-00.
The final race of the day went to Chatter Brooke who despite being hard ridden at the rear of the field kept grinding away under the aggressive riding of Adam Bodey to just get up on the line and defeat the heavily backed favourite Tordacity.
Unfortunately there is no race video highlight this week as there were some problems with the race video.
