Conditions were perfect today for racegoers and horses in a competitive day of Sunday racing at Goulburn District Race Club.
The meeting attracted large fields across a strong seven race program.
Horses from a cross section of local, provincial and Sydney stables took to the track and it was the visitors who stole the show early.
The renowned Sydney based Peter & Paul Snowden stable took out an early race to race double with Morpheus (ridden by Mitchell bell) winning Race 2 and Rio De Janiero (ridden by Adrian Layt) backing that up with a win in race 3.
The locals then hit back in the second half of the meeting with the always producing Danny Williams stable delivering a win with Tiara Road in Race 5. The John Bateman trained Nicconita then confirmed the big wraps on her with a scintillating win from back in the field in Race 6. She really looks a filly to follow having now won twice in just six starts and notched another three minor placings to keep her owners well in credit!
Goulburn Race Club CEO Robyn Fife says Sunday racing is a real positive for the club. “Racing on a weekend not only gives the local community a chance to get out to the track but also exposes the club and its facilities to a broader national audience via television and other media,” Ms Fife said.
“We were thrilled with the mix of visiting and local horses racing at Goulburn today. We always get a kick out of seeing the local trainers and their horses win a few races like they did today.”
Goulburn District race Club will hold its next meeting on Tuesday 5th June.
