Will The Sait Come Marching In?

Huntly Livestock Exchange is the venue this Sunday for the sixth race of the Bendigo Athletic Club cross-country season, the Purtill’s Nursery 8000 metres Handicap.  The hot favourite for the race is Shepparton runner Tony Sait.


Sait placed sixth and was the first Veteran home in last week’s rich Flack Advisory Classic and appears to be finding his best form at just the right time.  Tony is unlikely to have it all his own way however with plenty of others, led by Greg Hilson and Austin Beamish, looking to upstage him and grab the win and the accompanying $250.


Funky cold Adina wins Flack Advisory Winter Classic

After a frantic last minute drive through the outer suburbs of Bendigo and a rushed warm up, causing her to miss the start slightly, Adina Morrow still managed to record her first VCCL win in Sunday’s Flack Advisory Handicap. On her first trip to Woodvale, Adina was guided to the venue over the phone by Mark Findlay.

Richard keeps it in the family for the Schultz’s

A week after his wife Rhonda broke through for her well earned win it would now be Richard Schultz who would keep that winning feeling in the family after comfortably taking out race 5 of the Bendigo Athletic Club cross country season.

The race was kindly sponsored by long time supporter of the sport Phil Noden.  In keeping with the family theme, the 6.5km course was held at his fathers, Keith Noden’s property at Millers Flat Road in the Whipstick.

Rhonda Runs Rings Round the Rest!

After the first three races of the Bendigo Athletic Club’s 2015 season were dominated by backmarkers Rhonda Schultz reversed the trend in the Vin Drechsler Memorial Handicap held at Woodvale on Sunday.  Running strongly from the front Rhonda was never headed and held on to win by 7 seconds from pre-race favourite Josh Sait.  Rhonda’s husband Richard lost the battle of the Schultz’s but still finished a creditable third.
