So you think you can tip a winner at the picnics ? Well, picnic racing enthusiast Gino Deluca has put forward the good suggestion of having a competition to find the Picnic Punter of the Year. They have annual awards for jockeys, trainers, horses etc. so why not one for the punters on the circuit !
Peter Bon's PicnicBet.com has offered sponsorship for the event and will provide the 1st prize of a Hisense LCD TV. The competition kicks off this Satuday at Balnarring and the How to Play- Rules can be found under the Discussions Tab on the Picnic Racing Facebook page.
It is Free to enter so why not have a go and see who is the smartest tipster at the picnics.
Woolamai Gets Started but Finishes Early
Unfortunately the bad weather continues to haunt the start of the picnic racing season and another meeting was lost to the rain.
Despitegetting started in what were fine and humid conditions, after the completion of race one the heavens opened and dumped upon the track and stewards abandoned the meeting.
The one and only race went to Bubbly Black who was having its second run from a spell and backed up with a solid win after running a good first up third at Balnarring recently.
Ridden by Ben Wade and trained by John Kilgower the 6yo mare settled at the rear but made a strong run around the field and just hung on to beat the heavily backed and short priced favourite Brass Razoo.
