Cobar Hosts Final Event Of NSW Picnic Champion Series

By Mark Brassel

Saturday's Cobar Miners' Race Club picnic meeting will round out the last of the qualifying races before Dubbo Turf Club stages the $50,000 NSW Picnic Champion Series Final (1400m) on Sunday 15th September.

The Final will be the third running of the highly-successful Series that culminates with the only race of the year for Approved Riders staged on a NSW TAB program.

The Trevor Sutherland-trained Tearful Kitty leads the points score on 37 points from Southern Gamble (34 points), with Getting Ready and Oh What a Thief next on 29 points.

To qualify for the NSW Picnic Champion Series Final, horses acquire points for every picnic race meeting they attend in NSW and the highest-ranked horses at the end of the 12 months are then eligible to nominate for the NSW Picnic Champion Series Final.

All horses except Maidens are eligible to qualify (Clubs must be affiliated with the NSW Picnic Racing Association and use Approved Riders).

Nyngan trainer Rodney Robb has taken out both NSW Picnic Champion Series Finals with Security Code ridden by Maddison Wright winning the inaugural event in 2018, and Austin (Mollie Partridge) giving Robb back-to-back wins when he cruised home by just under five lengths.

At Cobar tomorrow, consistent galloper Cooee March (ridden by Ashley Boyd) will step out as topweight of the feature, the DJW Constructions & Wells Ventilation Cobar Picnic Cup (1700m), where he will carry 66kg.

In the supporting feature, the Landmark Russell Copper Sprint (1200m), Gadfly (Angela Taylor) will be asked to lump the steadier of 75.5kg, having taken out the Duck Creek Picnic Cup at Nyngan two starts earlier.

Former great jockey Jim Cassidy is the special guest of the Club.
