Hard runs at Lock­yer races

Gatton Star - - Sport -

PUN­TERS and the rac­ing elite gath­ered at the Lock­yer Race Club yes­ter­day to en­joy a hard fought and en­ter­tain­ing seven race TAB pro­gram.

Wel­come rain last week had af­fected the track, but it was rated as a good three and looked a pic­ture for an ex­cel­lent day of rac­ing.

The first race of the day was the Fresh­wayz Trans­port QTIS three-year-old Maiden Hand­i­cap over 1400m.

To­tal prize­money for this race was $10,000.

Court Cou­ture, trained by Dar­ryl Gol­lan and pi­loted by jockey Kenji Yoshida, crossed the line first.

Yoshida pushed his mount right to the fin­ish to get on top of sec­ond favourite El­lie Belle.

El­lie Belle was trained by Kevin Kemp, and rid­den by jockey Nozi Tomizawa.

Clan­go­randa, trained by Greg Cor­nish and rid­den by jockey Sheree Drake, came in third, who was then fol­lowed by Nada To Prada, trained by Pat Duff and rid­den by jockey Ms Ruby Ride.

Favourite Fel­ton Phan­tom, trained by Dar­ryl Gol­lan and rid­den by jockey Alan­nah Fan­court, fin­ished in sixth place.
