The Prostate Cancer Foundation Of Australia silks were prominent on Clubs NSW Men’s Health Charity Race Day greeting the judge twice.

It was two local runners that carried the flag for the charity, with Kristen Buchanan’s impressive debutant Bullet Wing and Damien Lane’s Fielding (pictured above) winning their respective races. 

Jan Bowen’s progressive mare Running Bear was an eye-catching winner, along with the Waterhouse/Bott The Milkybar Kid.

Check out the full review below.


The James Ponsonby trained Alloway opened the program with a dominant win in the THE ENTRANCE LEAGUES CLUB 4YO&UP CLASS 1 & MAIDEN, out staying his rivals over the 2000m. 

The $120,000 Magic Millions yearling, was having only his third start for the stable, having previously been trained in Victoria where he was placed second in the Listed Tasmanian Derby over 2200m.

He was coming off a third at Cowra and Ponsonby wasn’t surprised to see him improve over more ground. 

Winona Costin settled the Wandjina four-year-old just off the speed, before hitting the front in the straight and drawing away for a three-length victory. 

Ponsonby had expected a nice performance by Alloway and wasn’t disappointed. 

“I thought today’s run might have been a fraction short of his best, but knew he was going to get a good chance from the nice draw,” he said. 

“He’s a lovely horse to train.”

Alloway ($6.50) beat Karen Outrim’s Mr Luke ($10) who fought on in the straight, with Dunlee trained by Nikki Pollock ($41) third. 



An impressive win by Kristen Buchanan’s Bullet Wing, taking out the 1350m MINGARA RECREATION CLUB MAIDEN on debut, giving the stable a winning start for new owners Trilogy. 

Buchanan made the right decision choosing the home track option, after scratching the three-year-old from a 1300m race at Scone on Tuesday. 

Koby Jennings was able to cross the field and lead from barrier nine, and despite the early effort Bullet Wing was able to hold out his rivals on the line to win by almost a length. 

“He’s a really lovely horse and it’s great to get the win today,” Buchanan said. 

“We’ve been patient with him and had to scratch him a couple of times due to wide barriers. He drew wide again today but we decided to send him around. Koby just let him roll to the front and dictate terms and he had plenty in the tank to finish it off.

“It’s exciting to have my first winner for Trilogy. I have numerous yearlings coming to me from them and this was our first runner today. It was also their first runner that wasn’t a tried horse, so it’s exciting all-round.”

Bullet Wing was coming off two nice trials at Randwick and Scone.

The Joe Pride trained $2.25 favourite The Replicant ran on fairly to finish second and could be looking for more ground, over Feirme Prince ($8) from the Matthew Dunn yard. 



Pokerjack was sent out $1.80 favourite in the AINSWORTH LEISURE GROUP 4YO&UP MAIDEN (1100m) and didn’t disappoint with the win never in doubt. 

Apprentice Amy McLucas put in a well-rated ride to help secure victory for the four-year-old, who had been runner-up in three of his previous six starts.

Pokerjack, a four-year-old Casino Prince gelding, was coming off a second at Hawkesbury on May 22 over the 1000m.

The rise in distance and firm track were in his favour and McLucas sat just outside the leader before drawing away close to the line to win by half a length.

Gary Moore’s Harapan ($5.50) hit the line well in second, with the Buchanan trained Oakfield Blossom ($6.50) holding on for third.



Damien Lane stamped his three-year-old Fielding as a horse with a future after his breakthrough win in the 1100m GOSFORD RSL CLUB 3YO MAIDEN.

It had been a frustrating run for Lane with the son of Deep Field, who had been placed in all his five previous starts. 

“It was a relief today for sure,” Lane said. “It’s been frustrating to say the least. “We’ve had all sorts of problems with him early and drawn some bad barriers, but he has raced in good company.

“His whole attitude has changed, and he’s grown into a lovely horse with plenty of ability.

“He pricked his ears late today and it was quite soft in the end. He’s definitely going in the right direction.”

Fielding, raced by a syndicate including Lane and his wife Kate, was sent out $2.40 favourite and given a well rated ride by apprentice Jackson Searle.

He beat the Ron Quinton trained Miss Mya ($8) who isn’t far off a win, with the Waterhouse/Bott All Too Scottish ($14), third. 



The addition of blinkers made the difference to the Waterhouse/Bott trained The Milkybar Kid ($2fav), who atoned from his last start defeat to win the STAR FM 104.5 MAIDEN over 1600m.

The Reliable Man gelding looked to have the race won at Gosford on May 26 before running off the track in the final stages. 

He was trialled in blinkers and the stable was confident he could break though. 

Tim Clark settled the three-year-old midfield, gaining ground from the 600m and hitting the front on straightening. 

He was able to find the fence in the straight and sped away to score by more than four lengths. 

“He trialled well with the blinkers on, and this looked like the right race for him today,” stable representative Neil Paine said.

“It’s a good steppingstone for him. Gai and Adrian have started a lot of horse’s careers around here and this could be another.”

The winner is co-owned by former AJC Chairman Bob Charley.

The O’Shea trained Count On Me ($3.40) was second, over Dash Dash Dash prepared by Ian Finn ($14).



A super ride by Sam Clipperton secured victory for the well supported Dom Tycoon in the 1600m THE ROOS FOUNDATION BM64.

Clipperton took an early lead on the four-year-old and was able to get some cheap sectionals in the middle stages. 

He fought on strong to the line, able to hold out the fast-finishing Oakfield Storm ($4.40) from the Buchanan yard, with the O’Shea trained favourite Denarau ($2.70fav) third.

Robl said Dom Tycoon had come off his last start fourth at Hawkesbury in good form.

“He’s normally genuine when he finds form. Sam has won on him here previously and I had expected him to be near the lead. 

“He prefers the firmer tracks and everything going well I expected him to be hard to beat today.”

The four-year-old by Written Tycoon, brought up his fifth win at start 23. 



Progressive Muswellbrook mare Running Bear brought up win number three in impressive style beating a strong field in the THE BELLA GROUP BM64.

Trained by Jan Bowen and ridden by Ashley Morgan, the daughter of Your Song, is amassing a good record with three wins and five placings from just 13 starts. 

She was coming off a second in the Highway at Randwick on May 28 and kept firm in the betting starting at $6.50.

Morgan placed her just behind the speed in the early stages, before circling the leaders on the turn and drawing away in the straight to win by almost two lengths. 

“We threw her in the deep end last start at Randwick and she handled herself brilliantly,” Justin Bowen, representing the stable said. 

“We thought if she could repeat that performance she’d be in the finish and that’s what happened. 

“We don’t come this way often, unless we think we’ve got a chance, and it worked out today.”

Gary Moore’s Stay Wealthy ($26) finished strongly in second, with The Chosen One ($10), trained by Damien Lane, making up ground in the straight for third. 

Stewards adjourned an inquiry into Rachel King’s riding out of Adios Steve in the final stages. 



The favourite salutes in the last with the Bjorn Baker trained Divine Okay ($2.50) too strong for his opposition in a competitive Class 1. 

The Capitalist gelding brought up his second win at start four in the 1100m DOYALSON RSL CLASS 1, courtesy of a great ride by Josh Parr.

He pinched what proved to be a winning break on the turn and sped away in the straight, able to hold out the fast-finishing import Siyata from the O’Shea stable, with the luckless Tocomah ($4.60), trained by Gary Frazer, third.

“We were pretty keen on him today. It looked an ideal race,” Glen Lobb said. 

“He was a bit unlucky last start and didn’t get beat that far. I thought if he landed in the first four or five, he’d be hard to hold out.”



Kim Waugh is on her way to claiming another Wyong Trainers Premiership and could add to her winning tally on her home track on Thursday. 

Waugh has enjoyed a great run over the past month, posting five winners, including a Rosehill double, to take her to 35 to date for the 2021/2022 season. 

She saddles up two runners at Thursday’s Clubs NSW Central Coast Men’s Health Charity Race Day and believes the track will be perfect for both Rose Of Mahtoum and The Bullring. 

“We should get a very favourable track and that will suit both of mine,” Waugh said. “It’s been frustrating with these heavy tracks, but everyone’s been in the same boat. 

“When you have horses that don’t handle it your better off tipping them out because it doesn’t do their confidence any good going around. Hopefully the tracks are finally drying out.

“We’ve been going well this season, particularly over the past month and the Rosehill double was great. Hopefully it will continue.”

Waugh believes her Rubick gelding The Bullring has been a victim of the tracks and should put his best foot forward in the 1100m Class 1 on Thursday.

The three-year-old, a $120,000 yearling, has had nine starts for a win and three placings.

He resumed with a third at Hawkesbury in early May on a soft track over the 1100m, but then had to contend with two heavy tracks and was placed 10th at Newcastle on June 4 over 1200m, and seventh at Hawkesbury on May 22 over 1300.

“We’ve just been trying to find the right track and distance for him and hopefully we have that on Thursday. He should be up on the pace from the good draw. 

“He’s won at Wyong previously, so that’s also in his favour.”

Waugh’s other runner, Rose Of Mahtoum is having her second career start in the 1350m Maiden. 

The Capitalist filly debuted at Newcastle on June 4 over 1200m. 

“We are taking her along slowly because she’s bred to get over more ground,” Waugh said. 

“She drew wide at her first start on a very heavy track and Serg (Lisnyy) had to take her back.

“With the advantage of a much better track and good draw, we will get a better idea of how she’s going.”

The first of eight races gets underway at 12.10pm.

A super start to the day saw the Brett Partelle trained Nomoretawq breakthrough for a well-deserved win. 

He was the first of two locals to greet the judge, with Kristen Buchanan’s Ready’s Girl winning later in the day. 

Partelle’s Onemorenowmore gelding was having his 19th start in the WYONG RACE CLUB FUNCTION CENTRE 4YO & UP MAIDEN (1350m) and his third for the stable. Long-time friend Peter Eggleston, who recently retired from the training ranks, gave the six-year-old to Partelle and he has run a fourth and third this preparation. 

Nomoretawq was sent out $3.60 favourite on the strength of those runs and the win was never in doubt after Hugh Bowman took him to an early lead. 

He rated him well in front, drawing away in the final stages to win by almost two lengths over Cataratas ($4.80) trained by Peter Robl, with Jaxon’s Day ($5.50) from the Michael Rinkin stable third. 

Partelle, who was ill and unable to attend, had expected a nice home track run from Nomoretawq and paid tribute to Eggleston. 

“Peter sent him down in good order. He’s settled in well and enjoys the environment. We have him in the water a lot which is therapeutic. He seems to appreciate that and is responding to it. 

“He’s improved since his last run, and I expected him to race well.”



A luckless run for the Damien Lane trained Fielding paved the way for Kris Lee’s debutant Razeta to storm down the outside and claim victory in the 1100m THE ZING ON PROV & CTRY MAIDEN. 

Lane’s three-year-old had been placed in all four starts leading into the race and was the $3 favourite despite a wide draw.

When jockey Darryl McLellan was unable to gain cover in the early stages, it was always going to be a hard task for Fielding. 

Kerrin McKevoy had the sit on the leaders and was able to run down Fielding in the final stages to win by a long neck.

Razeta ($10.60), a daughter of Deep Field, was coming off three trials and is raced by long time Lees clients Bob and Sue Hannon.

“She was impressive and it’s nice to have another youngster coming through. Hopefully she’ll keep going now,” stable representative Danny Greer said.

Kristen Buchanan’s Oakfield Duke ($4) ran on strongly to finish third, while the The Halo from the Widdup stable wasn’t far off the placegetters. 


A race to race double for Kerrin McEvoy after the Godolphin trained favourite Shirshov ($2) proved too strong in the FINGER LICKIN GOOD MAIDEN over 1000m.

The Exosphere gelding was having his seventh career start and coming off a second at Hawkesbury over 1100m on May 19. 

Despite racing fiercely in the middle stages, the three-year-old was able to hold off the fast-finishing Nickelback to win by a long neck. 

Stable representative Darren Beadman said hopefully the penny has dropped for Shirshov, who had run three previous placings. 

“Sometimes a maiden is the hardest race to win and once they get the monkey of their back they can go on and be good. Hopefully that’s the case here,” he said.

“He sprung the gates today and Kerrin was able to dictate, and the horse fought on strongly.”

The Hawkes trained Nickelback ($3.20) looks close to a win, while Secret Hunter ($19), trained by Michael Freedman, put in a much-improved run finishing third. 



A big plunge paid off in the KYLE OLIVER MAIDEN with the John O’Shea trained Denarua blitzing his opposition over the 1600m to win by more than two lengths. 

A $140,000 So You Think yearling, Denarau was having his third career start, finishing a close second at Hawkesbury over 1500m on May 19.

He caught the eye of punters who backed him in from $5 to $2.60 in the final stages and they weren’t disappointed. 

It was a patient ride by Tommy Berry, who settled off the pace, making his run around the 400m and coming down the outside to win by two lengths. 

“It was a good win today,” Berry said. “She’s got a bit of ability and I don’t think she’ll have any trouble making it to mid-week Metropolitan grade.”

Avian Crescent ($13) trained by Jarrod Austin was second, over the $4.60 second favourite Calm Down, from the Quinton stable, who appeared to have every chance.



An upset in the 2000m THE STACK BURGER CLASS 1 & MAIDEN with Goulburn visitor Sorokin outstaying his opposition. 

Trained by Jean Dubois, the Star Witness gelding was having just his third career start and could have a bright future as a stayer.

He had been unplaced in his two previous runs at Kembla and Canberra but put on a great staying performance at Wyong to beat the more favoured runners. 

Dylan Gibbons took on the short priced favourite Vyner ($1.55) in the straight, the pair going head-to-head in the final stages with Sorokin getting the better on the line. 

“It was only his third start, and he was up to 2000. He copped pressure and won his first race, so it’s onwards and upwards for him,” Gibbons said.

The winner had been $41 in early betting but earned some support to start $14.

The Karen Outrim trained Mr Luke ($31) put in an improved performance to finish third.


Speedy Scone mare Tucson Valley was one of the more impressive winners on the day, bringing up her fifth win from just 10 starts in the 1100m COLONEL SANDERS CONDITIONAL BM68.

The daughter of Swiss Ace, trained by Stephen Jones, was able to lead throughout, fending off an early challenge from Trust Me, to fight on for a strong win.

Tucson Valley owned and raced by Gerry Harvey, is by his NZ sire Swiss Ace, out of his classy Flemington 1400m winner Sabino Canyon.

She had been impressive winning in the country beating her opponents at Wellington by more than seven lengths and handled the step up to Provincial grade in style. 

Starting at $3.50 favourite, Tuscon Valley beat the Partelle trained Trust Me ($14) by a length, with Jenny Graham’s The Drake ($6) third. 

There was drama at the start with Kim Waugh’s second favourite Black Jacamar rearing in the barriers and jumping some 10 lengths behind the other runners. 

After deliberating stewards declared Black Jacamar a runner. 



Kristen Buchanan’s new stable acquisition Ready’s Girl ($19) wasted no time making it to the winner’s circle, taking out the THE RAYMOND FAMILY F&M BM64 over 1350m.

The Better Than Ready mare was given a perfect front-running ride by Rachel King to bring up her fifth career win.

Previously trained by Chris Anderson in Queensland, Ready’s Girl was having her 29th start. 

It was a super effort by Buchanan to have her ready first up, with her last start on the Sunshine Coast in early December. 

Ready’s Girl was given a Randwick trial leading into the race and was able to win by almost a length over the Kim Waugh trained favourite Buba ($2.10). 

My Snow Queen ($3.80) from the John Sargent yard, was third. 


Kris Lees and Dylan Gibbons brought up a double in the final race of the day, after Mobstar showed an impressive turn of foot to take out the 1350m WYONG’S NEXT RACE MEETING THURSDAY JUNE 16 BM64.

The Shalaa three-year-old pulled away in the final stages to bring up his second win from start five, giving the stable plenty of confidence going forward. 

“It was a really good run at Scone last start, and he has continued to please at home,” stable representative Danny Greer said. 

“It was good to see him dominate like that today. Dylan had him in a nice stalking position and when he asked him to improve, he certainly did that. 

“Australian Bloodstock have found another nice one. It will be interesting to see how far he goes.”

Starting $3.80 favourite, Mobstar beat the Ryan/Alexiou trained Mihocek ($6), with the Perry trained Harlem Groove ($5.50) third.
