This week we return to Woolamai for their Cup meeting which always attracts a large crowd. The weather prediction is for a mostly sunny, cool, breezy, 22 degree day so it should make it ideal for picnic racing. Early nominations for the meeting are the biggest I have ever seen for any picnic races so we should get maximum fields in nearly all races with some good betting opportunities.

The Woolamai Race Club is also donating the gate proceeds from this meeting to the Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Appeal.

With a big eight race program beginning at 12:20pm, my advice to patrons is to make sure you get to the course early to secure a good location for setting up and enjoying the day. The Picnic Race Guide will be available for this meeting late Friday afternoon to help with finding a winner.

Good luck on the punt,

Peter Bon

Report for Buchan 7th February 2009

Justin Willaton has provided the following report and photos from the Buchan meeting.

This year saw the 122nd running of the Buchan & Gelantipy Race Club Cup ran at Canni Creek. The meeting was run in extreme heat and while there were a number of scratching’s the racing was very competitive. While the meeting was very much a success it would have to be said that the weather did keep many spectators away. Those that did attend all had a great time. There were 3 runners in the Cup which was one by Ancient Faeroe ridden by Kane Harris and trained by Charmaine Barnes by ¾ of a length to a very gallant Miss Gisborne ridden by Karen Gillahan which fought on very well, ahead of the fast finishing Reddy For Kerry ridden by Shane McGovern, which made up some 6 lengths over the final 400m.

Kane Harris rode a treble while 6 individual trainers prepared the winners.

Some of the stand out performers were Purple Zar, Urban Gypsy, Ancient Faeroe and Kiarchs Luck which all won very well.
