Big Day at Balnarring
It was a big day of racing at Balnarring with big fields and a big crowd. With so many recent meeting cancellations due to the weather large nomination numbers were inevitable as owners and trainers sought to get a run for their horses. It was good to finally get in a full day of picnic racing and although the track was rain affected the racing was competitive with some good priced winners for the punters good enough to find them.
The "Picnicbet.com Picnic Punter of the Year" competition got started and although there were not a lot of starters three out of the nine selected winners.
On the day riding honours once again went to Adam Bodey with a double and it was good to see the apprentices Matthew Corbisiero and Whitney Hurst boot home winners. Matthew had a lot better luck this week on High Kinglana when the saddle slipped coming around the home turn and ending his chances last time at Balnarring.
