Woolamai Report
by Brad Best

After sweltering through an Indian summer at Alexandra and Balnarring, picnic racegoers felt the brunt of an early winter at Woolamai, leaving many to ponder what on earth happened to autumn. Despite difficult riding conditions, punters were kept entertained throughout the afternoon with quality racing taking place between sporadic bursts of wind and rain.

Congratulations to Dani Walker who rode a winning double on the day, leaving her best work to last with dominant victories in races five and six aboard Fontainette ($3.20) and Cheeky Wizard ($4.40) respectively.

Earlier in the afternoon, Clay Beasy steered home even-money favourite Storm Rider to a solid three-length victory in the opening race of the day; while Matthew Corbisiero made the most of his late call-up aboard Trevor by taking out the San Remo Hotel Maiden Handicap by two-and-a-half lengths.

Race three provided the closest finish of the day with favourite Perisher Blue pipping Umanugget at the post to deliver the in-form combination of Stephanie Dorning and Kim Mayberry another victory for the 2012/13 season. In race four, Adam Bodey again proved to punters why he is still King of the Picnics by smashing his rivals to the tune of five lengths aboard Jive Music.

Thanks to all the bucks, hens, families and friends who made the trip to Woolamai despite the less than encouraging weather forecast. A special mention must go to all the guys who flew in from England for their mate’s buck’s party. All reports indicate that they enjoyed the balmy conditions and are looking forward to showing off their tan lines at the upcoming wedding.

Many thanks to the Woolamai Racing Club for another successful picnic racing season. We are already looking forward to the start of another one when spring rolls into summer (or autumn…or winter…or probably a bit of all four).
