Dubbo Harness Racing Club hosts Boxing Night Meeting
AN excellent crowd was in attendance at the Dubbo Harness Racing Club’s Boxing Night meeting where many families and friends traditionally complete their Christmas celebrations with the Dubbo trots.
With eight very competitive races, Goulburn Trainer/driver Ben Battle was successful in winning the feature event, The Colleen O’neill Memorial, on Jakes Way. Ben also drove a winning double with Whostolemypigeon.
Two other drivers also drove winning doubles with Madi Young on Alabama Ace and Playing Arkabella, and Jake Davis
on Studleigh Kristen and Rays Choice.
Race 1 was a battle of the locals with Brad Peisley’s Bradness Abuela edging out Jacquie Ingham’s Roseuponher by a nose.
Race 8 was taken out by Mckayler Barnes on Kyle Shannon, being named in honour of her father Kyle Barnes, a leading Dubbo reinsman for many years who passed away three years ago.
A Penrith Panthers jersey signed by the Panthers team was auctioned on behalf of the Yeo family. Penrith’s Captain Isaah Yeo was on hand to present the jersey to the successful bidder, David Jones. The Yeo family donated the proceeds of the auction to the Molly Croft Appeal.
