A day at the races in Wandoan
HORSE RACING: Race-goers from near and far converged on Wandoan for a day at the track.
Wandoan Diggers Race Club secretary Majella Erbacher said overall it was an excellent race day.
“We got off to a shaky start, two horses broke through the barriers in the first race,” Erbacher said.
“After that, whether the front gates got a bit touchy after that, we had to be very careful but we got through the rest of it with no problems.”
Jockey Jason Hoopert riding Coalbank Caviar took out the first race, while Adin Thompson on Tycoon Zip snatched the win in race two.
Cocktailsallaround jockeyed by Cecily Eaton dashed to victory for race three, while race four was claimed by Michael Schrapel on Bondi Battle.
The last race of the day was won by jockey Natalie Morton on San Vincenzo.
