Balnarring Report
by Brad Best

Pleasant conditions greeted spectators at Emu Plains Reserve on Saturday for the final meeting at Balnarring for the 2013/14 picnic racing season. A magnificent crowd attended, soaking up the relaxed atmosphere on the front lawn and cheering on their favourites under a sparkling autumn sky.
Riding honours went to Clay Beasy who rode a fantastic double from just three race rides. In race two, Beasy took the reins of topweight Bemarydan, steering the six-year-old gelding to the front and kicking away in the straight to win by one-and-a-half lengths. He notched up his double in the fourth, sitting just off the pace on seven-year-old gelding Umanugget before taking control of the race in the straight for a one length victory.

In other races, the ageless Debbie Waymouth kicked off the day in style with an all-the-way win in the first on board four-year-old gelding Pure Kerosene.

In race three, Courtney Pace positioned herself perfectly on six-year-old gelding Here’s To A King, sitting just behind the leader before hitting the front halfway down the straight, pulling away for a one-and-a-half-length victory.

In the fifth, Angela Bence made an early move on the well-tried second favourite What Logic and the five-year-old gelding responded, finding a second wind in the straight to win by one-and-a-half lengths.

In the last, punters were treated to a spectacular finish with eight-year-old gelding Mateo, first up after a six-month spell, holding on in a photo finish against the fast-finishing Vin De Vie, winning at the amazing odds of $26.
