Trainers 'Rush' To Nominate For Tamworth (Tuesday)

By Geoff Newling

Tamworth Jockey Club is preparing for its Tamworth Rush, the annual 1000m sprint the feature race on next Tuesday’s seven-race TAB program which drew 139 nominations today, an average of almost 20 per race.

“They are great noms,” said TJC general manager Kay Jeffrey. Ironically, she said, the Rush has the least nominations, just 10 “but the noms for that race have been extended and we are hopeful of getting a few more.”

The Tamworth Rush and the Class 3 1600m Handicap have had nominations extended until 11am Thursday but the other five races have attracted more than 20 per race with one, the Benchmark 58 Handicap 1200m finishing with 28 nominations.

While Tamworth’s most recent meeting as transferred to Scone due to the track conditions, Kay Jeffrey said Tuesday’s meeting is still to be run at Tamworth: “The track is looking great at the moment,” she said.

“We’re still hoping to improve our drainage but at this stage we will race at Tamworth.”

She also said while the Tamworth Rush had just 10 nominations, there were some nice horses such as Stephen Gleeson’s Don’t Tease Me, Brett Cavanough’s Just A Bullet and the quaintly named Billy Bent Ear, a last start Quirindi winner trained at Dubbo by Connie Greig, nominated.
