It has been a long time coming but Healesville finally got a full meeting away and despite the earlier gloomy weather prediction everything went well. Even the track which was rated as a slow 6 early was upgraded by the time racing began to a dead 5.
Adam Bodey was again on fire in the saddle riding a treble and his consistent horse Whenwegoineast made it 6 wins from 8 starts. Apprentice Jarrod Lynch landed another winner aboard the John Kilgower trained Delicate Jane and continues to impress. Unfortunately we will lose him from the picnic circuit next season as he pursues a jumps career.
Caitlin Jones and Matthew Corbisiero booted home the other two winners of the day and punters had the edge over bookies with 4 of the 6 favourites winning.
