Dabamirak could continue Glen Innes trainer Paddy Cunningham’s amazing run of success at Bingara this Saturday.
Cunningham won the Glen Innes Cup with Hula Girl recently and also snatched second and third in the race, giving him a rare Cup trifecta.
He then went to Tamworth last Friday and won two more races on the Country Music Cup program before notching his first Deepwater Cup (as a trainer) on Saturday.
Race caller Greg Kachel has been calling the one-day-a-year meeting for a number of years and was stunned at the size of the crowd and the reception Cunningham’s Carry Me Gee Gee received.
“It was the largest crowd I’ve ever seen there,” he said.
“They reckon it was about 4000.
“I also did the fashions on the field and they came from everywhere, Brisbane, Toowoomba, Sydney and Newcastle.
“And when they came into the straight and I called Carry Me Gee Gee coming at the leader I heard the biggest roar I’ve ever heard there.”
Dabamirak is one of 16 nominations for Saturday’s $9000 Bingara Cup, a benchmark 65 handicap over 1300m.
