Matcott’s Coursing Treble In South Australia
Written By Judi Hurley, Virginia GOTBA Coursing Correspondent Wednesday 3rd August 2011
On a small 6 race program, Shaun Matcott led in a treble with Bambi Bale, Allen Dodger and Allen Davis.
The other Shaun, Laffin that is, produced a very handy dog in Lorenzo who took time honours when running 15.06 and then went on to win the GOTBA Maiden Stake.
Tim Ieraciâ€™s Elusive Passion greeted the Judge as did Carole Scottâ€™s Daddy Kewell.
Our next meeting is set down for Sunday 14 August when normal graded events will be run â€“ all dependent upon nominations received. Remember, if the Club receives enough nominations, a Veteranâ€™s Stake will be run so itâ€™s over to you.
Please note that the Waterloo Cup, Oaks and Derby will now be run on the originally scheduled date of 17 â€“ 18 September. Both the Oaks and Derby carry prizemoney of $1800 to the winner provided 16 nominations are received.
The Waterloo Cup carries a winnerâ€™s purse of $3000 with 32 nominations needed.
The Waterloo is run over 2 days with 2 runs on Saturday 17th and 3 runs on Sunday 18th.
