Picone Summer Bonus Heads To The Hills (Glen Innes Saturday)

By Mike Witherdin

Everybody likes to take money off the bookmakers and the men from the mountains of the northern New England area get their chance at Glen Innes on Saturday followed by Deepwater next Saturday when the two clubs each have their once a year meetings.

Glen Innes has a 7 race TAB program and Deepwater has a 6 race community race day with both clubs having a 1400m cup as their feature.

As the locals only get one day a year to play, they will be out to show you don’t need to be at the Magic Millions to have fun at the races.

The leading riders and trainers in contention for the cash bonus provided by Phillip, Terry and Chris Picone for the Northern Summer Circuit will be continuing their battle with Jodi Worley who holding a 13 ½ point lead over Darren Jones and Jackson Murphy.

Worley has a book of 6 rides this weekend but most look to be outsiders. Meanwhile Jones has a smaller book but each ride is likely to be near the top of the market including Arawak for Peter Sinclair in the Cup.

Jackson Murphy, an up and coming 2kg-claimig apprentice, rides Mind Freak in the Cup and Floral One in the BM55 for Grant Prosser who has been supporting the northern circuit from his base in Wauchope. Both are last start winners.

As always Paddy Cunningham is hard to beat at Glen Innes and has 8 runners with 3 in the Cup. He will be trying hard to run down the lead of Peter Sinclair and Sue Grills in the trainer’s bonus.

Paddy had a rough day at Inverell on Cup Day with several short priced horses disappointing and Crossroad pulling up lame after the Cup. Horses trained at Glen Innes have a big advantage though due to the experience handling the rising ground approaching the home turn.

Nancy Stewart’s Safety Peg steps up in class in the Cup with Grafton apprentice Carla Dougherty to ride. It follows a big win at Inverell leading all the way over 1600m on Cup Day in BM65 class.
