What a buzz for the kids to drive in front of the huge crowd tonight.  The three back-markers took control in this race.  Magpie Mary turned for home in front but was soon overtaken by Chilli Knights driven by Brodie Webster who went on to win with Westbury Bogart driven by Jacinta Gilbert finishing a few lengths behind in 3rd position.  When Jodie Billinger took up driving 6 years ago Magpie Mary was her first pony and first winner so she definitely has a soft spot for her but tonights race will probably be her last drive on Mary as from tomorrow little Kaycee Carey will be taking the reins.

The second of the races on the night was made up of all the classes but the two little shetlands weren't fazed at all and took out the quinella, they of course are Wandarra Tess tonight being driven by Samantha Pascoe and Till We Meet Again (Brodie Webster).   At the top of the straight it looked like Monkey Business (Chantelle Dodd) and Way To Go (Kathryn Lehmann) were a threat to the shetlands but closer to the line they got a little tired and finished 3rd and 4th respectively.  Interestingly, in the last 6 starts that Wandarra Tess and Till We Meet Again have clashed they have rotated finishing either 1st or 2nd in every race.

It was worth Scott and Mandy driving to Globe Derby the past two Saturday nights of the Carnival to watch their daughter Samantha drive as she picked up two nice outside drives who went on to win, last week Magpie Mary and this week Wandarra Tess.
