BBQ Stakes 9th May 2012
Timekeeper today was Caroline Campbell following her third place, placing last week, even though she was the winner, and it was something like one year since her last win. She has however helped with the timing several times since that win. Rad had a severe fall at the Vets handicap at Mt Majura last weekend and will be out of action for a few weeks, until he has recovered, although the doctor wants him to keep exercising with gentle walks. Helen Larmour surprised by turning up early today, and finished back in the field. Nathan Smyth had his first run for the year. Mentioned at the presentations were Simon McAlister, Kevin Chapman, 12 years in the stakes.61 ran today, Simon Quan was first eligible, his 14 th run and first win, with a P.B. of 26:49, second was Terry Levings, angling for a win soon, following his good run last week. A field of 61 runners today, with at least one new runner (female). Nail Can Hill run results are in a separate post, I think 3 new runners in a recent run, including two females and one male. Nail Can run results; Anne Young 89:53, Carol Baird first W 60, Diana Schneider 63:58, second W60, Peter Clarke first M 60, 50:04 probably a new age record, 50:04,Jim White Kevin Chapman, Ewen Thompson had good runs although Jim is still troubled with his leg injury.
