'Fresh' Billy Enters Calculations For NSW Picnic Champion Series

By Mark Brassel

The theory "fresh is best" came to the fore at Moree picnic races last Saturday (25th May) when Free Billy took out the Chesterfield Australia Bracelet Trophy (950m).

The eight-year-old was having his first start for four months when he outsped the opposition to record a near three-length win under the guidance of Ashley Boyd ($3 equal favourite).

Free Billy defeated the other joint favourite Only Choice (Ridge Wilson) with Beau in Chains (Steven Kehoe, $5) finishing third.

The seven points are the first Free Billy has earned in the NSW Picnic Champion Series with the Final to be run at Dubbo in the spring.

Also earning seven points at Moree was tough seven-year-old Track Flash ($1.30 fav), who was also ridden by Ashley Boyd, and has now moved up to a total of 10 points.

Track Flash scored by a length and a half from Another Plan (Maddison Wright, $2.10) and Free Ticket (Wesley Boyd, $2.10).

Tearful Kitty (37 points) remains the Series leader from Southern Gamble (34pts) and Oh What a Thief (29pts).

Mallawa Amateur Picnic Race Club hosts the next NSW picnic meeting on Saturday, 8th June 2019.
