All Roads Lead To Mudgee For Easter Sunday

By Tony Megahey

Regular TAB Highway contender Marc Quinn and rising apprentice Chloe Baker continue a successful combination with strong prospects for a double at Mudgee’s Easter Sunday TAB meeting.

They team up with Randwick Highway placegetter Explosive Scene in the Happy Easter BM 65, 1500m event, and promising Phoenix Sunrise in the Jungle Wax Class 1 1100m race.

Chloe, who claims 2.5kgs, has ridden 24 winners so far this season, several saluting for Quinn.

“We’ve missed races through washouts but I’ve kept them right up to the mark with jump outs and both are well placed with Chloe’s claim,” Quinn said.

“Explosive Scene trialled really well Tuesday at Taree. He’s held his form and indicated he was up to city grade when he ran second to that smart Snappy One in a Randwick Highway earlier in the season.”

Quinn won a subsequent Highway Handicap with talented Cogliere who also made the Country Championships Final.

“Phoenix Sunrise is a nice progressive filly,” Quinn said. “She’s had two recent trials but looking at the race form Bjorn Baker’s filly Skirting will be real hard to beat off a Scone win and Wyong placing. That’s strong form for Mudgee, but mine will run a race.”

Chloe rode Explosive Scene when the six-year-old gelding won at Port Macquarie and ran second at Kempsey to accomplished local, Don’t Nicme.

“Chloe did a lot of work for me when she was based in Port Macquarie,” Quinn said. “She’s a confident young rider and I’ve been happy to keep giving her opportunities.”

Ironically the main threat to Quinn’s Explosive Scene is a training friend in local Gayna Williams with Strong Boy. Williams is guesting Quinn’s runners at her Mudgee stables over the Easter week-end.

Mudgee volunteer racing official Colleen Walker and her helpers have organised family entertainment and are predicting a bumper holiday crowd.

“The fields are highly competitive and stables with city performers have been good enough to support us again,” she said. “We’ve got fashions on the field and an Easter Egg hunt is always exciting for the kids.”
