RAC­ING

WHILE he didn’t get a win in the prized Bowen Cup, Satur­day still proved a fruit­ful out­ing for Mackay trainer John Manzel­mann.

Manzel­mann had win­ners in races one and three at the Bowen Turf Club at the week­end, led by the Lee At­tard rid­den Rocket Billy Rebel in the 1470m Class B Hand­i­cap.

The four-year-old geld­ing fin­ished four lengths clear of the field to col­lect $6500.

Strike Zone and Wind­sor Gold rounded out the top three.

Later in the day it was Manzel­mann’s Kather­ine Gorge who joined the party, win­ning the 1200m Bench­mark 55 by 1.5 lengths over Tup­peny’s Opin­ion and Il­lu­sions.

Adrian Coome rode the four-year-old mare to vic­tory, start­ing from bar­rier nine.

Bill Ken­ning’s Semi Writ­ten was also vic­to­ri­ous on Satur­day, clean­ing up the field in the 1200m Maiden.

The four-year-old geld­ing, rid­den by jockey Frank Ed­wards fin­ished ahead of Who’s Your Caddy and Richie Pocket to win $7150.

Out­sider Star Truce, trained by Olivia Cairns, tri­umphed in the 1100m Open Hand­i­cap de­spite start­ing the race at $15.

The five-year-old geld­ing won by just 0.2 lengths over Owen Cullen’s Dream’N’Ig­nite.

Loke­lani rounded out the top three while pre-race favourite Sammy Ju­nior ($3) ran sixth.
