The racing season is fast coming to an end and astute trainers are placing their horses to their best advantage, given that the higher profile contenders have mostly been spelled with a view to the next season.
Our Owners of the Month for June were: Nathan Hurst, Ray Grubb and Dean Latter.
Nathan, who always has a large team in work, is based at Eglington in the Central West of NSW. He shared in the ownership of three winners of 4 races in June, at Peak Hill and Bathurst, namely Blazing Brax, Tulhurst Ace and Tulhurst Sarsha.
Ray Grubb, who hails from Sutton, has been a long time member of our Association and an even longer time supporter of Harness Racing, through his Stud Farm, Sutton Lodge.
Ray won several races at Menangle with Bettor Believe It, one of which was in 1.53.8. Her stakes won now exceeds $100,000.
Dean Latter, our third recipient is one of our latest members and won two races with Justa Glamour at Tamworth and Newcastle. Well done Dean.
Our Owners of the Month for July were: Reg Walsh, Kirsty Formosa and Wayne White.
Reg has been an Owner/Breeder for many years and always has his share of winners. In this month they were Most Admired and Rodney Strides, both at Penrith.
Kirsty Formosa, is the wife of Ellalong trainer, Michael Formosa, and has enjoyed much success in recent times particularly with Ultimate Art, who was a Group 3 winner at Menangle in July. Other successes came via Ultimate Trump at Tamworth, and we hope Kirsty is sharing the winnings!
Out third winner is Oberon based member Wayne White, whose mare Miss Rodriquez won her first race at Bathurst. This handy mare has had 12 starts for a win and six places and hopefully more success is on the way.
We would suggest that everyone view our website to update on upcoming benefits, such as the Owners Bonus Series which begins with the Bathurst meeting on 9th September.
