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.
