Christmas Eve racing

THE annual Christmas Eve race meeting takes place on Wednesday.

There will be very good class races on the program and two $30,000 country showcase races offering a great Christmas present to owners and trainers.

Sharyn Trolove has been close to a win with God Help Her and with apprentice Beau Mertens on board, the claim may make all the difference.

Nick Hall is back riding as well as ever and has a good book of rides including recent winner Boart and Easter Rising for the Aldersons, Zedi Gold for Andrew Murray and Barkly Boy, a Ciaron Maher runner.

The old team of Ian Hutchins and Vlad Duric are back together again for Nahgo and Somethinghappening and both are good chances of earning prize money.
