Victory Lass Chases Rare Treble In NSW Picnic Champion Series

By Mark Brassel

In-form mare Victory Lass will be chasing a rare treble after winning the Tait Toyota/Helen Boland Memorial Bracelet (1000m) at Talmoi picnics last weekend.

Victory Lass (Ricky Blewitt, $2 favourite) won the race by two lengths from Cool Rules (Kath Bell-Pitomac, $2.20) with Achanizo (Wesley Boy, $4) just under two lengths back in third place.

Having previously taken out the Chesterfield Australia Mallawa Bracelet (1000m) a fortnight earlier, connections of Victory Lass will be hoping the five-year-old can land the last leg on Saturday week, the Wean Bracelet Trophy (1000m) on Saturday 8 July.

But first the Todd Payne-trained Victory Lass is entered this Saturday for the B&W Rural and Namoi Cotton Rural Mungindi Cup (1400m) which should top her off nicely for the treble attempt.

Victory Lass sits just outside the top 10 with 19 points, just ahead of Our Boy Danny (17pts) who also shot up the leader board following his win in the B&W Rural/W.C. & R. Hunter Memorial Talmoi Picnic Cup (1400m) on Saturday.

Sergeant Bilko (52 points) still leads the series from As Easy As (42pts) with Black Fusion and Zaphod both on 30 points.

Black Fusion, who won the Boorowa Picnic Cup (1700m) three starts back, came out a week later to claim the Leeton Cup (1600m) in dogged fashion before a close third to Allelu in a Wagga TAB meeting on the Riverside Course.

The points score began at Harden in 2016, with the NSW Picnic Champion Series Final being run on Dubbo Gold Cup Day (Sunday, 17th September 2017) offering $50,000 in prizemoney.

To qualify, horses will acquire points for every picnic race meeting they attend in NSW, with the highest ranking horses at the end of the 12 months being eligible to nominate for the Picnic Champions Final.

All horses except maidens are eligible to qualify (Clubs must be affiliated with the NSW Picnic Racing Association and use Approved Riders).
