My Little Pony and Jennifer

In the Kapunda Cup for the Shetlands Oungachucka started off the front mark but was soon overtaken at the 350m mark by My Little Pony and Midnight Star.  My Little Pony driven by Jennifer Lehmann definitely made amends from his performance in the heats where he didn’t complete the course and today after taking over the lead early never looked like being beaten.  Midnight Star battled on well for 2nd ahead of the backmarker Till We Meet Again.

The three placegetters with their Rosettes


1st – Magpie Mary – Kaycee Carey

2nd – Mr Mischief – Matthew Williams

3rd – Way To Go – Kathryn Lehmann

4th – Chilli Knights – Brodie Webster

5th – Little Paleface

6th – Lord Monty – Jacob Starick

7th – Wynkie Sweet Fairytales – Jodie Billinger

8th – Monkey Business – Chantelle Dodd

9th – Born To Be Wild – Hayley Lehmann

10th – Aadelaidee Lady – Madison Smith


In the Kapunda Cup for the Open Class Magpie Mary driven by Kaycee Carey started off the front mark and cruised away for an easy win beating last night’s winner Mr Mischief with Way To Go finishing third.


It is hard to tell who had the bigger smile after their races Jennifer Lehmann or Kaycee Carey.
