Monday 19th May at Pinjarra will see the culmination of the Garrards Junior Concession 
harness racing driver challenge with the running of the $14,999 Final of Series Three. 
 
The driver of the winner of next Monday’s race will receive a $250 voucher from Garrards 
while the winner of Series Three will earn for themselves a $500 Garrards voucher. 
 
There is however a lot more at stake next Monday as the overall winner of the Garrards 
Challenge will receive $2,000 cash from Garrards and will be Western Australia’s 
representative at the 2014 New South Wales Rising Stars Series. 
 
The New South Wales Rising Stars Series will commence on June 22nd and culminate on 
NSW Breeders Challenge Day at Menangle on Sunday June 29th. 
 
Cody Wallrodt, with 21 points, has a three point lead in Series Three from Kaiden Hayter (18) 
and Harley Matthew (16). With the winner of Monday’s race to receive 10 points, 2nd (8 
points), 3rd (7), 4th (6) etc the Series Three challenge is wide open. 
 
The overall Garrards Driver Challenge is even more wide open with anyone of the leading five 
drivers capable of taking the title and the rewards that go with it. 
 
Stuart McDonald has a two point lead heading into Monday’s race and is poised to become 
the only driver to score better than 20 points in each of the three series. 
 
McDonald has a total of 58 points and leads from Bunbury based Tom Buchanan and Kristy 
Sheehy who each have 56 points with Kiara Davies and Cody Wallrodt each on 50 points. 
 
The ballots for both drives and barriers will be done on Thursday 15th May and the field 
released at 3:00pm that afternoon.
