Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

in the sec­ond round of these heats go on to con­test the Water­loo Purse.

Sun­day morn­ing dawned with bright sun­shine but it soon clouded over and a strong icy wind blew up.

The wind and oc­ca­sional show­ers, how­ever, did not put a damp­ener on the com­pe­ti­tion as quar­ter­fi­nals got un­der way with close fin­ishes the or­der of the day.

A lun­cheon catered for by the lo­cal com­mit­tee of vol­un­teers was en­joyed by over 60 peo­ple in­clud­ing of­fi­cials of the NCA, Strath­bo­gie Shire rep­re­sen­ta­tives and Long­wood com­mit­tee mem­bers.

A num­ber of races were held through­out the day mak­ing for non-stop ac­tion cul­mi­nat­ing in the Water­loo Cup fi­nal at 4pm.

In a first for the Long­wood Club the race was livestreamed and within 15 min­utes of the event be­ing held over one thou­sand hits had taken place.

The win­ner of the pres­ti­gious Water­loo Cup was “Bet­ter Than This” and the run­ner-up was “Night At­tack”.

The win­ner of the Water­loo Plate was “Last Out­law” and the run­ner-up was “Sweet Spud”.

The win­ner of the Water­loo Purse was “Dual Keromo” and the run­ner-up was “Prove­nance”.

Fol­low­ing the run­ning of the cup, ev­ery­one moved to the warmth and com­fort of the Long­wood Com­mu­nity Cen­tre where pre­sen­ta­tions were made to win­ning con­nec­tions.

Heather Villinger, trea­surer of the NCA, com­mented on the strength of cours­ing in the area and the great con­di­tion of the Long­wood track.

The spec­ta­tors as well as those in­volved in the train­ing and pre­par­ing of com­peti­tors en­joyed their stay in the Euroa area with many favourable com­ments made about the qual­ity of the ac­com­mo­da­tion and din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences they had en­joyed.

The Long­wood cours­ing com­mit­tee ex­ec­u­tive and mem­bers were con­grat­u­lated on their stag­ing of the event.
