Racing

Rehanaat, trained at Parkes by Sharon Jeffries for Phil Easman, made it four Cup wins from the last five starts when taking out the feature race at Nyngan on Saturday.

Ridden by Scone based Ashley Boyd, Rehanaat ($5.50) travelled in fourth position  and then finished strongly down the centre of the track to win the Three Rivers Machinery Duck Creek Picnic Cup (1250 metres) by a length from Austin (Maddison Wright, $4.20) And Flatley’s Fortune (Wesley Boyd, $7.50).

Following a win in the Trangie Gold Cup,the six year old chestnut mare Rehanaat won the Grenfell Picnic Cup and then was a dead heat for first with Track Flash in the Marthaguy Picnic Cup before finishing fourth in the Gulgong Cup and winning the Cup at Duck Creek Picnics held at Nyngan.

Ashley Boyd also rode Rehanaat for Sharon Jeffries and Phil Easman when winning the 2017 Duck Creek Picnic Cup from Didyahearme and Emerald Fortune.

Nyngan trainer Rodney Robb and south coast jockey Maddison Wright have been a formidable combination over recent seasons  and they had a winning treble with Blue Channel ( Maiden Plate, 900 metres ), Bulbadah ( Class 2 Handicap, 900 metres ) and Bells ‘N’ Bows ( Class B Handicap ( 1250 metres ).

Owned by John Smith from Gilgandra, Blue Channel  ( $3.20 to $2.10 favourite ) after racing close to the lead cleared out to score by nearly seven lengths from Sutton ( Caitlin King, $6 ) and High Tail It ( Ashley Boyd, $6 ).

Bulbadah ( $3.50 ) raced by David and Heather Ringland from Dubbo and the Wayne Brown owned Bells ‘N’ Bows ( backed from $2.20 to $1.60 favourite ) both tracked the leaders before taking control in the straight.

The well bred five year old mare Trajectory, raced by media personality Tim Moses and trained at Dubbo by his partner Cindy Monaghan, was heavily supported in the betting ring ( $4.60 to $2.70 favourite ) before winning the Rob Ellison Memorial Class 1 Handicap,1600 metres, with Ricky Blewitt in the saddle.

Fifth to the hometurn, Trajectory won by over two lengths from Whinna Whiskey (Maddison Wright, $4) with Al Artois (Ashley Boyd, $10) four lengths away third.

A valuable broodmare prospect,Trajectory is a three quarter sister to Group One winner  Duro Valley.

Trained at Cobar by Wayne Prisk for Jarrod Marsden, Vonnida (Wesley Boyd, $6) was very impressive when coming from a long way back to win the 900 metres Open Handicap from Lulu’s Destiny (Maddison Wright, $2.50 fav.) and Mr Swift (Ricky Blewitt, $3.80).

Duck Creek Picnics attracted a record crowd.

Racing on Saturday at Cowra ( TAB ) followed by Dubbo ( TAB ) on Friday July 20 and Carinda on Saturday July 21.
