Drouin Report Saturday 9th February 2008
There were good size fields accepted for the Drouin meeting and a dead track which helped to mix the form up a bit with leaders advantaged on the track. The track rating was dead and there was some slight on and off rain throughout the day but the racing was competitive.

The first race was an open affair which went to the 3yo filly Aster Lass. Giving Kane Harris an early win to take the lead in the jockey premiership which is a close affair between himself and Adam Bodey with each rider on 24 winners coming into this meeting.

There was no weakening today and favoured by the track conditions it led them up and won with something in hand from Cutiebertha and gave Kane Harris an early double.

The third went to Underfoot who also disappointed at its last start when a short priced favourite at Woolamai. Leading all the way and with some concern it would run out the 1200m everyone was left in no doubt as it won easily.

Race four went to the consistent Port Phillip who recently ran a good race in the professionals. The win gave Kara Anderson her third win for the season.

Race five was won by another leader in Dis Reply who was heavily backed at its last start at Yea but disappointed. Today it went straight to the front and held off the two more favoured runners in Chatter Brooke and Deep Rule in the run to the line.

The final event saw yet another leader in Turning Yallah dash away on the turn and and beat the favourite Dover.

Alexandra Report Sunday 10th February 2008
Alexandra finally got a meeting away after being absent from the picnic racing all last season and their first meeting this season when washed out. The day was perfect although without any Melbourne or interstate metropolitan racing the crowd was down and betting was quiet. Fields were generally strong and the tussle for the jockey premiership continued with both Kane Harris and Adam Bodey riding doubles. Go to the picture gallery

The first race was a small three horse distance affair where Imperial World ridden by Paul Koumis and having its first picnic start outstayed its rivals and won well after being backed from $2-40 into the $2-00 favourite.

The second race saw the very good Our Sorsaledo Bay make it four picnic wins from four picnic starts and provide Kane Harris with the first of a winning double.

The third race was a very open affair on paper and proved to be that way in the running where on the turn the entire field fanned in a single line across the track in the run to the finish. Edenvale Lady came home second from the outside to win at the big odds of $11-00 and patiently ridden by Clare Whitehead.

Race four went to Scold who jumped well and led on the fence with 75kg to hold out the courageous Bonserada who pressured the horse on the outside all the way but was just not good enough. The win made it seven wins from seven picnic starts and gave Kane Harris the second of a winning double.

Scold carries 75kg and wins its 7th race from its 7th picnic start. Video courtesy of Video Air Services, servicing all your picnic video & photography needs.

Race five went to the Adam Bodey ridden New Land who was too strong in the run home from the well backed Super Shag. There was not a lot between them at the finish but the strong riding of Adam Bodey made the difference in the final stages. Go to the picture gallery

The final race provided Adam Bodey with his second win of the day on Jacksparrow. The horse raced very poorly last start and appeared to resent racing that day but was on its best behaviour today, jumping well and beating the well backed Prince of Cards.
