Victories in the Macquarie Picnic Cup (at Trangie) and the Geurie Picnic Cup last Saturday has seen Drummed Out race into equal second place in the 2020 NSW Picnic Champion Series.

The Roy McCabe-trained Arrow Haze (Ricky Blewitt, $1.60 fav) won the final race of the day at Geurie and her five points have advanced the mare to seven points in total.
Georgian Court, trained by Natalie Jarvis, leads the points score on 16 points following her win in the Young Picnic Cup and a second placing in the Harden Cup, both back in October.
