The Bert Clark Memorial taken out by Pandanus trained by Gary Brett performed at his best.

It was great to see Julie Stefanos able to attend the meeting for a couple of hours, considering her recent health problems and only very recently being released from hospital.

Bert Clark was Julie’s father and they were responsible for the Longwood Coursing Club to continue after being run down for some years. The track today was outstanding and congratulations to all concerned.

The Fothergill Family had a great win with Billabong Spur and Be Kind.

Calvin Russellhad some success with his charges and was also successful in winning the club raffle, much to his delight.

To all the participants, I hope you enjoyed your weekend and to the newcomers who were not successful, keep trying maybe next week at Werribee will be your turn.
