Born This Way takes out Cup

A HUGE crowd turned out for the excitement of the Alex Scott and Staff Woolamai Cup Day on Saturday.
The heat was no match for the enthusiastic supporters who came along to place a bet and cheer on the horses.
“It’s been quite good considering the weather, we are very pleased,” Woolamai Racing Club secretary Bev Carmichael said.
“We have a happy crowd and a great turn out of horses with very few scratchings.”
The races started early to combat the heat. The first race was at 12.15pm and the last was run at 3pm.
Proud trainer Cliff Murray watched on as Born This Way and jockey Angela Bence crossed the line first in the Woolamai Cup Race. Second and third place were claimed by Wait Forette and Kadena Lane.
“It was enjoyable day with the help of our lovely elm trees to provide shade,” Mrs Carmichael said.
