STAKES DAY AT BALNARRING - BODEY SNAGS THREE
The final day of the Flemington Cup carnival closed out what has been a busy week of picnic racing. The weather was ideal for the entire carnival and Balnarring put on a strong card of picnic racing. Riding honours once again went to Adam Bodey who picked up a treble. The unlucky jockey of the day was Kane Harris who had rides in five of the six events and came second in all races.
The main race of the day was a thrilling finish between Rapid Thrill and Petite Gold. The short priced favourite who was solidly backed from $1-80 into $1-45 and looked like it was not going to get there as Kane Harris opened up a break in the straight.
