Country Championships another stunning success!
DUBBO hosted the last of the Regional Qualifiers for the $500,000 Country Championships recently.
Appropriately it was Good Host ridden by Jake Pracey-holmes who saluted the judge, a half-head clear of Coonabarabran-owned Sea Lady.
In a thrilling charge down the straight the horse from the Warrumbungles seemed to grow an extra leg as she bravely ran up beside Good Host.
Both horses qualified for last Saturday’s final at Randwick but were not able to repeat their local success and finished off the pace.
Dubbo Turf Club President Chris Davis and CEO Vince Gordon were over the moon with the 9 Race Program and are already planning for next year’s Qualifier.
The ANZAC Memorial meeting is coming up on Friday, April 27, and the Lifeline Boys Day Out is set for Sunday, May 6.
