Race 1
Race one in the schedule was sponsored by Scott Grant at Quality Wools, with only 5 ponies running in both the races. The conditions of a warm day did not slow the ponies down in this race and track conditions were prime for the ponies. Buddy Boom Boom with Evie Sealey followed by Jerry driven by Nicola Bowditch were the leaders of the field until the top turn where Marmalade and Bryce Bygate did not hold back and stride by stride made it to the front, however, Minty and Jessica Shepherd quickly approached the pair on the outside of the track.Jessica Shepherd drove Minty over the line fofr the race one win ahead of Marmalade (Bryce Bygate), Evie Sealey had another flawless drive on Buddy Boom Boom for a third placing, with Jerry (Nicola Bowditch) and Blaze was last over the line,driven superbly by Courtney Sealey.

Race 2 was another interesting race, with smallest pony on the track, Buddy Boom Boom racing 600 metres compared to the usual 460 metres. All ponies had a smooth start for this marathon race, expect for Minty who was a bit too excited.  Frontrunners, Jerry and Buddy Boom Boom were the leaders again until Marmalade (Bryce Bygate) came to lead on the home straight, Blaze (Amber Formosa) were in sight of leading but couldnt quite make it. Minty and Jessica Shepherd  took out the double for the afternoon, Marmalade and Bryce Bygate took the second placing, ahead of Buddy Boom Boom, Jerry (Nicola Bowditch) and Blaze (Amber Formosa)
We would like to thank, Scott Grant from Quality Wools for sponsoring both races on the nigt and supporting the pony trots each meeting.
