Several Maitland district trainers have horses in action at Friday night’s eight race meeting at Newcastle International Paceway.
The Glenn Tomlin Memorial is the feature event in race five with a tight field and plenty of chances to take out the $8000 prizemoney.
Sawyers Gully trainer Rod Pike has seven of his charges racing on the night including Kreuzer in the fifth. The horse has won twice and placed twice in its past five starts.
However, Friday night will see Kreuzer go up against Guy Chapple’s The Falcon Rainbow and Weston trainer Jason Proctor’s Hezabigfella along with fellow Weston local Josh Osborn’s Lady Son Yador which has won three of its last five.
The Glenn Tomlin Memorial, over 2550 metres, will also see Michael Formosa’s pair of Eye Spy Lombo and Level Two look to continue their impressive recent form after claiming six places and a win between them in their past 10 starts.
Proctor has Asituation and last start winner Jansinawink.
Shane Tritton’s horses Major Bonus and Im Cool Harry are running in races two and six respectively.
Racing starts at 6.30pm.
At Menangle on Saturday night, Cawdor trainer Paul Fitzpatrick will be hoping local knowledge is a factor as he takes his pair of Pub Blitz and Rohan Home the short journey east to contest the Menangle Winter Cup final.
Racing starts at 5.05pm.
