Tamworth Race Should Be A 'Cracker' On Friday

By Geoff Newling

Fresh from a successful Tradies Day last Friday, Tamworth Jockey Club now has a Christmas in July Quast’s Turkey meeting on Friday.

Winning trainers can expect a magnificent turkey with their winning sash Friday on a day that has drawn 149 nominations for eight races.

TJC general manager, Mitch Shaw, said nominations for the Benchmark 66 1200m have been extended until 11am on Tuesday as well.

“We did the same last Friday,” he said of that day’s Benchmark 66 Handicap. “It was a good race too. Hopefully, it will turn out the same this Friday.”

Mitch Shaw said the prospect of finishing with 150 plus nominations was pleasing and promising.

“It’s a great response considering the amount of racing out here. We’ve got Muswellbrook racing today, we raced last Friday and Gunnedah also race next Monday.

“The B66 field is going to be a cracker of a race. There are four or five last start winners nominated.”

Trainers from all over have nominated including Scone’s Stephen Jones, who won the Horsepower Handicap (1280m) at Muswellbrook’s Skellatar Park with Herzogovina today.

The six-year-old gelding, a son of All Too Hard, led and won impressively. It was his third career win and second from two starts back this campaign.

“He’ll probably go to a Highway Handicap (in Sydney),” Stephen Jones told Sky Thoroughbred Central’s Gary Harley and Chantelle Buckley after the win.

“He’s got a bit of talent, a lovely horse.”

Jones said Aaron Bullock rides the gelding “well” and the talented jockey had a bit of work to do early on the hard-going gelding early in the race.

“There was no speed on early,” Aaron Bullock said. “He was too good for them. He’s got a lot of ability and is going to make a nice horse.”
