The autumn weather has been superb but even better for our Owners of the Month for May, namely Bradley Hewitt, Lester and Linda Hewitt and Peter Trevor-Jones.
Brad Hewitt has had a purple patch of late, winning 7 races with 4 horses; She’s All Magic, Spare Me Days, the exciting He’s A Dude, and the ever improving I’m Jay Tee. An impressive aspect of this success is the consistency shown by the stable runners.
The Western Districts husband and wife team of Lester and Linda Hewitt won 5 races with 3 horses; Casino Chimes and She’s So Foxy at Bathurst and Armbro Chimes at Penrith and Menangle. The latter horse will figure prominently in the upcoming 4 year old division of the Breeders Challenge.
The last recipient for May is the very successful Peter Trevor-Jones with 5 wins with 3 horses including the highly rated Ominous Warning. This 2 year old has gone from strength to strength and will no doubt start a warm favourite in the upcoming Breeders Challenge final for Colts and Geldings. He has speed and stamina and is rewarding his owner for many years of involvement in Harness Racing.
This Association would urge all participants to be aware of the proposed changes to Handicapping and Programming that are proposed to be introduced from the 1st of September 2014. Harness Racing NSW have been conducting road shows to explain the changes which they intend to implement and these changes will have far reaching impact on all participants. Further information can be obtained by contacting HRNSW.
