Harness Racing South Australia Awards

Prominent owners Adam, Ben and Terry Cormack were big winners at the 2016/2017 Harness Racing South Australia awards day on Sunday.

Three-year-old trotter Rocknroll Baby, squaregaiter Al Bundy and quality mare Just Rockon Bye collected awards.

The Cormacks have developed an impressive property outside Two Wells with Greg Norman as their stable trainer.
