Wish Granted

After disrupted  training over the summer Grant Findlay approached this season more with hope than expectation.  However after finishing in the first 10 in 5 of his first 6 starts he started to believe that his wish to claim a sash this year might come true after all.

 

Jack Attack!

With the finish in sight Harper-Lee Basten thought she was going to claim her first win in a Junior race at Woodvale on Sunday.  That was until Jack Parker flashed past her in the finishing straight and went on to win Race 7 by three seconds.  Jack won two races last season and will now be looking to pick up another victory before this season is over.

 

Peter Le Best!

Age and experience triumphed over youth and enthusiasm at Mandurang on Sunday in Race 2 of the Club’s regular season.  Seasoned veteran Peter Le Busque ran strongly through the hills in the middle of the race and established a lead that Ingrid Douglass couldn’t overcome.

 

Olivia's Boulton to Victory

It was a battle of the friends in Sunday Junior 1k event with Olivia Boulton passing Harper-Lee Basten in the shadows of the post to take first place.  These two had left the rest of the field in their wake as they concentrated on their tussle for victory, with a 20-second gap until Olivia's brother Jaymin Boulton crossed the line in 3rd place narrowly holding off the fast-finishing Emma Gilligan.  

It was Simple for Simon

Simon Hunt's enjoyment of his first season with the BAC increased on Sunday when he pocketed the winner's cheque in the Final of the Flack Advisory Grand Prix Series.  Running strongly in the later part of the 6.5k event Simon overtook evergreen veteran Rick Ermel with a few hundred metres to go and from then on was under no pressure.

The Grand Prix Series, held this year for the first time, comprised 3 qualifying heats and a Final.  31 runners earned the right to contest the Final in which they competed for $2,000 in prize money, having shared another $1,000 in the earlier heats.
