Hun­dreds flocked to the Roe­bourne race­track for the Nor-West Jockey Club’s an­nual Ladies Day last Satur­day.

Great weather, fash­ion­able frocks and some ex­cit­ing races marked one of the big­gest events in the club’s cal­en­dar.

It was a good day for Pil­bara train­ers, with four of the six horses that crossed the fin­ish line first trained by Port and South Hed­land lo­cals.

Spirit Cent started the day off with a win in the 1200m, fol­lowed closely by Bernar­dini Ge­nie in sec­ond and Ro­man Fighter third.

Jockey Chelsi Forder took two horses over the line first in races two and three, with Canny Doubt win­ning the 1100m and Tem­pes­tu­ous Strike com­ing first in the hand­i­cap 1100m. Totes Amaze, trained by South Hed­land’s Dean Co­civera, won race four, fol­lowed by Vic­to­ria Peak in sec­ond and Our Two Bobs Worth in third.

There was much cel­e­bra­tion in the mem­bers’ area af­ter fea­ture the race of the day, the Hard­ing Cup, was taken by Cru­soe.

Boys Ge­taround Him ended the day on a high af­ter jockey Chris Ni­coll rode it in first, fol­lowed by Speed ‘N’ Reef and Looka­tim Go.

Nor-West Jockey Club pres­i­dent Kevin Kevin Kin­in­month said the day was a great suc­cess.

“We had some good wins to­day, with Caruso win­ning the Hard­ing Cup and (the day was) good in the re­spect that the own­ers are some lo­cal boys too,” he said.

“I’m pretty sure ev­ery­one’s had a great day.”

Mr Kin­in­month said he ex­pected another good day for the Roe­bourne Cup on Satur­day, July 29.
