BBQ Stakes 31 st May 2012
Due to changes in Waldock St for pedestriams and vehicle traffic, where the top of the street has a freshly laid concrete path. This makes for an additional 40 metres or so to the course.
58 runners today, with Rad making a return to this event following his fall in the Vets handicap, he was told not to run until the end of May, and took it easily today. Helen Larmour performed the timekeeping and did an excellent job. Helen has a P.B. of 26:12, and last week ran a time of 26:36.
Today's winner was Daniel Buckley across the line at 39:33, he has a P.B. of 36:27 on 6 August 2008, and 7 wins from 155 runs. Second was Damien Kennedy, across the line at 39:34, third was Bob Harlow crossing the line aj 39:36. What you might call a close finish.
Bill Rendall, a well known runner at the Vets Handicaps, was just passing by, and had a little chat with the early gathering waiting for their starts.
