A Day of Firsts At Alexandra
It was a day of firsts at Alexandra Picnic Races with jockeys Michael Schrapel and Owen Davies both riding their first winner. Owen Davies booted home Rosecoloredglasses and followed it up with a double when he landed the short priced favourite New Land. Michael's winner was the consistent Delta Dane who finally broke through after recent placed runs.
Benjamin Sporle had a first in calling a full picnic racing meeting and a wonderful job he did. I was surprised to learn this up and coming young caller from Bendigo is only 15 years old.
