Buchan and Gelantipy Racing Club

Good crowds at Canni

Buchan and Gelantipy Racing Club secretary Ian Dunkley reported one of the best crowds ever last Saturday for the Canni Creek picnic race meet.
Good weather gave the spectators a lovely day. There were even quite a few campers and caravans on site for the event.
Excellent racing on the day saw some good times run, and stiff competition.
It was good to see so many local trainers and owners represented on the day, even though the cup went to a Sale horse, Haka Brave, for trainer Cliff Murray and jockey Cory Jones, who outrode his apprentice claim on the day with one winner and two seconds.
Another apprentice jockey, Jarrod Lynch also had a good day, riding the first three winners.
Gippsland picnic racing now has two more meetings for the season to prepare for Hinnomunjie on Saturday, March 10 and Swift’s Creek on Sunday, April 8.
Bairnsdale racing has its next meeting set for Saturday, April 7.
