There is just over two months until the Ready2Run Sale on Sunday December 6 at Tabcorp Park Menangle and the catalogue is starting to take shape. Sales Co-ordinator John Coffey has confirmed 42 entries have been received and encouraged potential vendors to contact him within the next fortnight if they are interested in selling a horse at the sale. “A number of the big stallions are represented including Courage Under Fire, Rocknroll Hanover, Art Major, Mach Three, Sportswriter, Bettors Delight, Somebeachsomewhere and Roll With Joe,” Coffey said. “If there is anyone interested in having a horse included in the sale they would need to contact me in the next two weeks because the sale is just around the corner.” With a number of sale graduates performing exceptionally well on the racetrack, Coffey is encouraging buyers to get to Menangle on the first Sunday in December. “Perfectly Written won a group two race at Melton earlier this month and took her career earnings over $30,000 in the process while Iam Mr Brightside won at Menangle two weeks ago in 1:50.8 and has now won more than $175,000. “Other well performed horses include Zee Dana and Nathans Courage, both came out of last year’s sale and I think it shows that if owners are looking for horses that are ready to go to the races then this sale is the place to buy.” The sale has attracted strong sponsorship from Garrard’s Horse & Hound, Wollondilly Equine, Gow-Gates Insurance, IRT, Chips Lett Photography, Coromandel Agistment & Spelling, Alabar Farms and has received great support from HRNSW and the NSWHRC. The NSW Standardbred Owners Association is behind the Ready2Run sale and Treasurer Peter Green is looking forward to the event. “The Association is going to be busy before the end of the year, we’re expecting a big sale and looking at the breeding of some of the horses that have been nominated I know it is going to be successful,” Green said. “We also have our Annual General Meeting and Awards Night on Saturday October 10 and we are looking forward to a big turnout at Menangle that night.” The AGM will start at 5pm while the Awards Night will follow at 6pm. “Both will be held in the Directors’ Lounge at Menangle and the Awards Night is free for all members and their partners. “One lucky member will win a trip for two to Paris and the holiday includes return airfares and accommodation for seven nights.” There will also be an auction on the night with a service to Passmaster Hanover on offer, while a 50% share in a well bred, broken in two year old eligible for the Bathurst Gold Crown and Breeders Challenge, donated by Peter and Marie Neil will also be available.

Driver Mat Rue has tasted success at the highest level in harness racing. The talented reinsman won the 2013 Miracle Mile driving Baby Bling for trainer Belinda McCarthy but a victory in the 2015 Eugowra Canola Cup on his father Ken's horse, Lucy Lamb would be very memorable. Lucy Lamb won her heat by a big margin despite Rue sitting calmly in the sulky and the talented mare remains undefeated after four starts. "She did that all by herself in the heat, there was a driver behind me who was making a bit of noise and she just took off, I didn't ask her to quicken at all," Rue said. "Dad has always had a really nice opinion of her and I remember her first educational trial she competed in I thought she had a bit of a future." Lucy Lamb found her way to the stables of Ken Rue after a conversation between Ken and Golden Gait's Wayne Lamb. "Dad was working one horse and he always says if you are going to work one you might as well work two so he spoke to Wayne Lamb about leasing one and he said to head out to Golden Gait because he had a few there that he could have a look at. "When Dad drove in Lucy Lamb was at a tie up rail and he was hoping Wayne would offer him her and when Wayne said to Dad you can lease her, Dad said yes straight away." Mat Rue is no stranger to Canola Cup success having driven Bobbee Dee Dee to victory in 2011. "I'd love to win on Lucy Lamb for Dad, there is going to be a pretty big cheer squad for her at Eugowra next Monday and I know my brother has already organised to have the Tuesday off work so I think he might be planning on a big celebration if she wins. "Dad only lives 25 minutes away from Eugowra and it is his closest track so he does travel into the track and works her there a bit, I think it would be classed a local win if she can get the job done." Lucy Lamb has drawn barrier seven and will follow out the Steve Turnbull trained Oh I Am The One. "It probably isn't as bad as it looks because I think Steve's horse looks as though it will lead and that should mean I'm in behind the leader which will mean we get a pretty good trip into the race. "We might just need some luck swinging for home. Greg Hayes

Goulburn harness racing trainer Brad Hewitt has watched his extended family dominate the Canola Cup at Eugowra since its inception in 1999. Two of Hewitt's uncles Neil Day and Bernie Hewitt have won the race nine times between them while his father David won last year's edition with talented mare Holm Three. Hewitt will look to add his name to the trainer's honour role after Tullow qualified for next Monday's final with an impressive heat win. Tullow and Hewitt's job was made harder after the barrier draw was conducted and the former kiwi came up with barrier six and will start from outside of the front row. "It is never easy when you draw wide at Eugowra but he did gallop in his heat from the inside so it might be a blessing in disguise because I will be able to nurse him around the first turn," Hewitt said. "If you go back and have a look at the Canola Cup results from previous years, it tends to be dominated by horses that race up on the speed so I will have to push forward in the early stages and see where I can lob." Hewitt purchased Tullow out of New Zealand after watching him compete in the North Island. After making a few calls across the Tasman, Hewitt contacted race broadcaster Mark McNamara to help finalise the purchase. "I've used Mark to purchase horses from New Zealand before and I started watching this horse and really liked him because of his speed. "I spoke with Mark and he helped me getting the purchase sorted out, he'll be calling the Canola Cup again this year which adds to the whole story I guess." After galloping in the early stages of the heat, Hewitt thought his Canola Cup plan had unravelled. "I had my heart in my mouth when he started pacing roughly, he has done most of his racing in Australia at Menangle so going back to the smaller track made it a bit tough on him but I'm sure he will be better for the run on the tighter circuit. "I always thought he had a fair bit of ability and it took him a while to win his two three year old races last season so I thought the Canola Cup would be a good race for him." Tullow will be cheered on by a large group of owners including NRL players Jarrod Croker and Sam Williams. "There are a few people in him but Jarrod and Sam both have shares, hopefully he can win it for them. "Holm Three won the Canola Cup for Dad last year, I think Tullow is definitely as good as her if not better and I think he will make the graduation to metropolitan racing in the city." Greg Hayes

Bathurst Harness Racing Club held its Annual General Meeting on Tuesday night at the clubs new home of racing, Group 1 Feeds Paceway. After 8 years of leading the club, outgoing President Mark Collins has stood down and handed over the Presidency to current Vice President Wayne Barker. In his farewell speech, Collins said “It has been an honour for me to be the Club Chairman and being involved with this club is something that I will cherish for the rest of my life." "The track and facilities are first class and the number of positive comments I have received over the last 12 months is testimony to the great facility we have.” Collins added. “I can’t thank Harness Racing NSW and Bathurst Regional Council enough for allowing this to happen.” Collins said. “I would also like to thank my fellow Directors and Staff, particularly our CEO Danny Dwyer and recently retired Vice President Wayne Loader for their valued assistance.” Collins concluded. Popular Board member, Wayne Barker will now take the reins and is looking forward to continuing on the fantastic work that his predecessor has already undertaken. “I’ve got big shoes to fill." "To me, replacing Mark would be akin to taking over the Queensland Origin Captaincy from Cameron Smith. " "But I’m ready and looking forward to it as well.” Barker suggested. “This is a great club and there wasn’t a prouder person in the room last night, besides Mark, than me” Barker added. Laurie Clifford has assumed Barker’s previous position as Vice President. Greg Hayes

Hunter Valley Mini Trotting administrator Daryll Jackson won the inaugural Industry Volunteer Appreciation award on Saturday night at the Harness Racing New South Wales Industry Awards in Sydney. Mr Jackson has been the Secretary of the Newcastle/Maitland Mini Trots for 33 years and on the NSW Mini Trots committee for the equivalent period of time. Mr Jackson organises the Mini Trotting State Championships at Gunning annually, with ponies and drivers coming from across New South Wales to compete in one of the 100 races run over the weekend. While Mr Jackson acknowledged he had been involved in the sport for a long time he was surprised when he was named the winner. "It was sensational to win but it was a big surprise and it came from nowhere," Mr Jackson said. "It has been a long stint but I've enjoyed every minute of it and I hope to continue in Mini Trotting for many years to come." Mr Jackson spends hours every week organising Mini Trotting events for his local Newcastle/Maitland Club and still works tirelessly for the state body. "I'm happy to do it, I got involved initially because my sons were involved in the sport and they have since moved on but I just get a big thrill out of watching all of the kids compete and become more confident around horses. "Daniel Morgan received the Junior Encouragement Award for the Country and I have seen him come through the ranks as a young driver so to see them develop like that is what keeps me going." While Mr Jackson was presented with a trophy on the night, he also received flights and an accommodation package to the Perth Inter Dominion later in the year. "Wendy (Strickleton) is a great support for me and if I didn't have her support I don't think I could get everything done, we will definitely enjoy the time in Perth." Greg Hayes

Popular harness racing broadcaster Mark McNamara will return to Australia to call the Lexus of Parramatta Canola Cup at Eugowra on Monday October 5. The Australian who now lives in New Zealand will return for the long weekend and is looking forward to getting back to his favourite country track. "I think this will be my sixth or seventh Canola Cup, I really enjoy calling the Club's big day and there have been some very nice horses win it during that time," McNamara said. "The atmosphere at Eugowra is hard to beat, when the weather is nice and a big crowd rolls in it is very hard not to have a good time." McNamara called his first Canola Cup in 2006 when the Carnival of Cups concept was introduced by the controlling body. Four-year old mare Aldebaran won the event narrowly from Zippy Life. "The Eugowra Club work very hard in promoting the meeting locally and I like catching up with all of the people who make the regular trip to the Canola Cup. "In New Zealand the meeting that I would say has a similar feel to Eugowra is the Kaikoura Cup, it is a great afternoon of racing, a lot of people attend and there is a great atmosphere." Harness Breeders NSW has invited McNamara to be a special guest to the annual HBNSW Awards Presentation at Tabcorp Park Menangle on Saturday October 3. "I was contacted and asked if I'd like to go along to the Breeders Awards night and I was happy to attend so I'm looking forward to seeing a lot of familiar faces at the evening also." The heats for the Lexus of Parramatta Canola Cup will be held Sunday September 27th with nominations closing on Wednesday September 23rd at 9:30am. Greg Hayes

Dual Inter Dominion winner Beautide was crowned NSW Horse of the Year at the Harness Racing NSW Awards Night tonight in Sydney. The James Rattray trained gelding won his second successive Horse of the Year title joining recent winners Smoken Up and Lombo Pocket Watch as multiple title winners. Beautide raced ten times in the 2014/15 season winning on five occasions and was placed a further three times. The son of Bettor's Delight won twice at Gr.1 level during the season after winning the Inter Dominion in March and the Coca Cola Amatil Sprint in November. Beautide was also placed second in the Miracle Mile and the Len Smith Mile, the two feature sprint races in Australia. HRNSW CEO John Dumesny congratulated Beautide and his connections, singling out James Rattray for special praise. "James has done a tremendous job with Beautide, every sport needs heroes and after winning his second Inter Dominion at Tabcorp Park Menangle I think Beautide has truly shown his status within the harness racing industry," Mr Dumesny said. "I would like to take this chance to congratulate all of tonight's winners, it has been another great season of racing and these nights are important because while the participants are fierce rivals on the track, it is good to see them enjoying one another's company here at Doltone House." Beautide has been nominated to defend his Inter Dominion title in Western Australia later this year and is expected to return to the trials in the next month.

Club secretary Mark Croatto invited Goulburn High School to be involved with students assisting in the planning and running of the successful event.

Long time harness racing supporter Brian Ingram was elected Mayor of Young on Wednesday night at the town's Council Chambers. Mr Ingram has been a well respected owner, breeder and administrator in the sport for a number of years and HRNSW CEO John Dumesny congratulated Mr Ingram on the honour. "This seems like a coup for Brian and I can envisage the advantages harness racing will be the beneficiaries of in the future," Mr Dumesny said. "Brian has worked tirelessly for the sport for many years, I would like to wish him all the best in his future endeavours and despite an increased workload I'm sure he will still be involved in harness racing in and around Young."

Not every harness racing driver can lay claim to winning a race at the first meeting they compete at but 20-year old Stephanie Lippiatt celebrated the achievement when she scored on Flying Cameron for trainer Noel Morris at Penrith last week. Stephanie's long term partner David Morris is a successful driver and it was through their relationship that she became involved in the sport. "My parents bred heavy horses when I was younger so I grew up around horses, just not harness horses but I was quickly introduced to them when David and I started going out," Stephanie said. "It is quite funny because when I first started jogging a few for David I hated how the rocks keep getting kicked back in my face and I told him that I would never drive another horse." After working for several different stables, Stephanie decided she would like to get a licence to drive in races and went about driving in trials however was forced to take a break from driving after discovering she was pregnant. "When David and I found out that I was pregnant I think I had only eight or nine trials left so I had to put it on the backburner for a while but I think I was back driving in trials two weeks after I had Riley so I was still very keen. "It didn't take me long to complete the rest of my trials and then I finally got the chance to compete last Thursday night in two different races." Stephanie drove Battling Boy in race five and Flying Cameron in the seventh event. "Battlin Boy was my first drive and I was really happy with his effort to finish fourth, I got him off the arm well and he was able to lead so I was pretty happy for him to finish so close to them. "I wasn't expecting Flying Cameron to win but I did think he was a pretty good chance and when he won I was ecstatic, my whip went a little bit crazy too." After driving her first winner Stephanie is keen to get back out on the track soon. "I want to prove to myself that my first couple of drives weren't a fluke and I think I'll have a couple of drives at Penrith again next week. The victory was an early 21st present for Stephanie as she is due to celebrate her birthday this weekend. "After the win I went up to Mudgee and spent some time with my parents, they only recently moved up that way from Badgerys Creek." Greg Hayes

Pixies Parlour was the filly that broke the Steve Turnbull hoodoo at the Bathurst two year old carnival. Despite having won countless feature races including the Inter Dominion and Miracle Mile with Smooth Satin, the multiple premiership winner had never won a Bathurst Gold Crown or Tiara until 2015 and off the back of that performance could Pixies Parlour be NSW 2yo filly of the year? Pixies Parlour won the first Gold Tiara on the new Bathurst track and recorded two other victories during the season taking her career stakes earnings to $62,575. Unfortunately for connections she never regained the form she showed during the Bathurst carnival and was placed twice in her subsequent four starts. Importantly Pixies Parlour led home three other fillies in the Gold Tiara that have been nominated for NSW 2yo filly of the year. Other nominations include: Abettorrose - Won the Pink Bonnet at Tabcorp Park Menangle and competed in some quality races throughout the season. Hot Shot Woman - Raced 14 times throughout the season and despite winning only two races she was placed in a further nine including three at group one level and won more than $168,000. Soho Madeline - Spent time in two different stables during the season but raced well during her stint in NSW. Won three races including a heat of the Bathurst Gold Tiara. Three Squared - Boom filly in the early part of the season that recorded a slick 1:55.9 victory on debut. Raced in a number of feature events during the season and banked more than $60,000. The best 2yo filly in NSW will be announced at the HRNSW Awards Night at Doltone House, Darling Harbour on Saturday September 19th. For tickets call Nancy O'Grady on 9722 6600. Greg Hayes

Our Waikiki Beach has dominated two year old racing in Australia this year and is the clear favourite for NSW 2yo colt/gelding of the year. The son of Somebeachsomewhere won eight races in New South Wales for his New Zealand trainer Mark Purdon including two group one events at Tabcorp Park Menangle, the Australian Pacing Gold Final and the Breeders Challenge. With the horse being trained by Purdon, only the gelding's performances in New South Wales can be considered however his dominance has not been seen since Lombo Pocket Watch racked up 17 wins as a two year old in 2005/06. The other nominations for this year's NSW 2yo colt/gelding of the year are: Bettermatch - Dominated the early season 2yo racing scoring in a blistering 1:55.8 on debut.

Banked more than $60,000 and recorded a season best of 1:53.9 Shadow Runner - Sam Dimarco, his daughter Marissa and Shadow Runner were the stars of the Bathurst Gold Crown carnival. The Shadow Play youngster won four straight early in the season before finishing fourth in the Breeders Challenge.
