Due to the Summer Carnival we only had two pony races tonight and we were privileged to have Jim Jacques as our race caller.

The first of the races was a spectacular finish with most of the field going over the line together.  The winner was Magpie Mary driven tonight by Samantha Pascoe.  Samantha hasn't driven since the official season began but tonight showed she knew what she was doing and came around the outside to win from My Little Pony who led most of the way and the backmarker Westbury Bogart finishing third.

Hopkins Saddlery were our Sponsors tonight and Joanne Karutz handed out the ribbons to the placegetters.

Coming down the straight Magpie Mary outside My Little Pony.  On the line 3rd to 11th placings were very close!

With a huge crowd on the lawn to watch the ponies the second race was taken out comfortably by Little Paleface with Sundance driven by Brett Lowe and Cheeky Charlie driven by Jacob Starick filling the placings.



A pat on the back this week should go to our handicapper Angela Wise who due to the Summer Carnival had to squeeze four fields of ponies into 2 races.  I think Angela succeeded as it is not easy to match up different classes and adjust the handicaps so all ponies are competitive and finish together.
