Charity still the big winner for race day

NORMALLY the Blackwater Lions Race Club stages its annual race meeting at the Bluff race track but as that track is under repair, this year’s event will be held at Dingo.

No doubt club officials will be delighted with the support received from owners and trainers as larger-than-normal fields are the order of the day.

Each year the Blackwater Lions Club receives valued support from officials and workers from the Bluff Race Club to help them stage the annual race meeting and raise funds to be distributed to worthy organisations in the community.

This year the Dingo Race Club has also involved itself to ensure the meeting can proceed.

Jeff Olive and his band of workers have been working tirelessly this week to ensure the course and surrounds are in peak condition for tomorrow.

The stand-out bet on the card appears to be Flyer Belle in the 950m Class 3 Plate.

Going on her last start third behind Eight Pieces and Nerangatang at a recent Mackay TAB meeting, it is hard to see her being beaten and her trainer has a great chance to bring up a winning double. I also expect Coco Loco to be hard to beat earlier in the day.

Horses in other races with good winning chances are Gypsy Star, Give Im Zar and Sunday’s Girl.
