Warragul - Ready for their meeting on Monday
Warragul's final race meeting of the 2014/2015 Victorian harness racing season this Monday afternoon will be an intriguing one.
 
The Warragul Harness Racing Club annual premiership awards, presented to the leading trainer, senior and junior driver and most consistent horse, will be decided at Monday's meeting.
 
Some of the awards could go down to the wire with current results the closest they have been heading into the last raceday of the season for some years.

Greg Sugars is engaged in an interesting battle with fellow top reinsman Chris Alford in the Driver of the Year Award.

Greg leads the award, having driven three winners at last month's race meeting, however Chris is closing, and has been one of the most successful drivers in history at Warragul.

Locally owned and trained trotter Stoned Again holds a one point lead in the Horse of the Year Award.

With two wins and a second from three starts on the track, and a record winning time at the recent race meeting, Pearcedale's Walker family are looking for their first win in this award with their trotter.

Top junior reinsman Josh Duggan holds a one point lead in the Concession Driver of the Year Award, with Zac Phillips and Vin Langdon both chances of claiming the win in this award if results fall their way on Monday.

Cranbourne trainers Jayne Davies and Noel Alexander have dominated the Trainer of the Year award since its inception in 1981 - and they go into Monday's meeting with a lead that should be big enough to claim the award again.

Under the points scale, race winners receive four points, with two points for a second placing and one point awarded for a third place finish.

First of eight races on Monday runs at 12:36pm with free entry for patrons.
