Shambler & West Train Armidale Doubles
Written By Kevin Pitstock Tuesday 19th August 2008
Michelle Shambler bagged two of the ten-race program, with her dogs Killer Queen and Swanky winning the third and ninth races respectively.
Fellow Uralla trainer Ross Clay took the first race.
Maureen West, from Beechwood, also trained two winners on the day.
Club president Greg Nordstrom said the meeting was a success.
â€śIt was a good day, except for the cold wind,â€ť he said.
â€śThere was some good racing, the track specialist Kingâ€™s Man got up again and Maureen West did well, sheâ€™s always a trainer to follow here.
â€śIt was good to see the locals getting amongst it as well.â€ť
Nordstrom said the clubâ€™s next meeting would be in late September, and plans were underway to stage heats for the Maitland Country Cup final to be held in November.
