Dubbo-trained galloper Drummed Out has shot to a commanding lead in the NSW Picnic Champion Series following his narrow win in the Open Trophy Handicap (1000m) at Tottenham picnics last weekend.
Drummed Out (Michael T. Johnston, $4.60) scored by a head from Bee Double Bee (Maddison Wright, $4) with Hu Hit Hu (Zara Lewis, $6) three-quarters of a length away in third placing.
The seven points earned have taken Drummed Out to 28 points for the Series and now sits seven points clear of Song One with Regina Margherita running third on 20 points.
Regina Margherita (Leandro Ribeiro, $10), also prepared at Dubbo, was another to grab seven points at Tottenham when she won the feature, the Tottenham Picnic Cup (1400m).
The mare defeated Waldo Waldorf (Ricky Blewitt, $9) by just under a length with Raise a Drop (Zara Lewis, $11) third, more than four lengths back. The favourite Another Plan ($3.20) disappointed in finishing last.
