    Trainers and drivers were notching up doubles (or trebles) all over the place at Mildura tonight
    Leading trainer by prizemoney for the last 12mths, Andrew Vozlic must wonder about the invasion as from 7 runners, the best he could do was 1 third

    R6 at Mildura tonight has me baffled
    The race conditions include:
    Restricted to horses which have not won any race with advertised stakemoney of $15,000 or more which have had at least 5 race starts at Mildura, Ouyen and Swan Hill since 30 March 2020 inclusive.
    Now l like the idea of rewarding horses that have patronized the region but why should this race be worth $15k?
    We are 'granting' a $15k win to a horse that has not been good enough to earn it under normal circumstances

    Once again I have been told how good the Cup Carnival was
    Post Cramp days the new committee has done wonders up there
    The local newspaper was full of harness racing!
    It was a pity that due to Covid they were limited to 1,000 on track

    Harness racing never ceases to amaze and 'educate' one

    The disadvantage of being remote
    This is the best you can get for a $20k race

    Bernie and the drencher looks a certainty. If the race was at Melton he'd by only a rough chance. Smart placement of the horse has paid handsome dividends.

    He is pushing up to $200k from his Mildura campaigns - surely it won't be long before the owner of a better horse places it with a Mildura trainer

    Bernie is going around again at Mildura on Friday, this time in a $12,000 NR 72-120.

    There are 12 races from 11:32 to 5:37.

    Bendigo is on at night, with another 12 races...24 for the day.

    Believe it or not, Rod Lakey, Ryan Sanderson, Ellen Tormey and Jayden Brewin are listed to drive at Bendigo , after competing at Mildura with Rod down in the 8th at 8:47, and the others in races 11 and /or 12.
    406 km from Mildura to Bendigo. Total of 812 km for the day !
