Trainer Peter Sinclair's gallopers Liberty Head and Scout have made claims for a berth in the $50,000 NSW Picnic Champion Series Final at Coonamble following last weekend's Moree picnics.
Liberty Head (Michael Johnston, $3.20) narrowly took out the B & W Rural Boolooroo Moree Picnic Cup (1400m) from Equilibrium (Leandro Ribeiro, $11) to land his first points (seven) in the Series.
In the following event, Sinclair's four-year-old Scout (Ricky Blewitt, $1.70 favourite) also scored in a close finish from Folkstone (Michael Johnston, $3) in the Vanderfield Bracelet (950m). It was Scout's first appearance for the Sinclair camp.
Scout also picked up seven points, but they lag behind the current leader Drummed Out on 28 points. Sitting in second spot is Opera Tickets on 22 points, with Call Me Trinity, Nevada Sunrise and Song One each on 21 points.
The $50K Final will be run at Coonamble on Sunday 10th October.
Picnic racing continues with Mallawa picnics on Saturday week (12th June).
