TWO IN A ROW FOR GREG RYAN
Record crowds have battled the heat at our annual Wellington Boot Racing Carnival and Country Championship Qualifier. With 7500 people coming through the gate on Sunday, cheering was in the air with the main two races at the end of the day. Greg Ryan has glided home on Alitterate to win his second Boot in a row and his third Boot win overall with all winners trained by Pat Farrell from Muscwellbrook.
Pera Pera has won the Country Championship Qualifier just ahead of Iron Blue and these two horses are now off to Randwick for the final of the Championships. Both horses are definately a chance at winning the final.
The Chestnut Filly that was up for grabs was drawn on Sunday and the winning ticket went to John Robertson from Bacchus Marsh Victoria and has chosen to keep the Filly by Snippetson.
