Wellington Invasion at Narromine
It was a day to remember at Narromine on Wednesday for the Wellington Race Club and its local exports as they took home the last 3 races.
Michael Mulholland trained a double taking out the last event with OLD HARBOUR as he was given an expert ride by Kate Bell-Pitomac to kick clear in the straight winning by a length.
Mulholland’s other winner was ATHENA’S LAD in the sixth event but he also managed to run 4th as UNIVERSAL THIEF snuck in under the urgings of Kate Bell-Pitomac and completed the Wellington based first 4.
Karen McCarroll settled in third with her mare Lady Riz and Not Negotiating was a narrow second for Peter Stanley and his grandson Dylan.
The Stanley pair would not be denied a race later as The Long Run came away victorious by a head, it was a great Stanley family moment with Peter and Dylan combining with the added storyline of it being Dylan’s first winner.
Expect to hear Dylan’s name often as he plies his trade as Kody Nestor’s apprentice whose stable is flying at the moment.
A first 4 to remember in the BM66 Hcp (1600m) with Wellington trainer horses filling the 1,2,3,4.
