Summer harness racing at Goulburn gets underway this Monday afternoon with the club hosting a big 9 race program including 2 trotting races.
The first of three meetings to be held over the Christmas and New Year period, all people regardless of their vaccination status are welcome on course following further easing of the Covid-19 restrictions.
Racing kicks off at 12.28pm.
Princess Kenny from the KerryAnn Morris stable will start favourite in race 1, the Crust Gourmet Pizza Goulburn Trotters Mobile.
The 5-year-old mare has been racing much higher graded opposition at Menangle, and while drawn on the second row she will find this a much easier assignment.
To be driven by Robbie Morris, Princess Kenny will start at a short price but looks one of the strongest chances of the day.
The second trotting race is the Justin Albury Communications Trotters Mobile and In The Valley for the Troy Williams stable appeals as a strong chance.
The 7-year-old gelding will be driven by Robbie Morris and has also drawn gate 10. He is a last Menangle winner who is likely to start at good each way odds with the hardest to beat being Kylies Life.
Race 7 is the Sun Solutions Goulburn Pace, and Im Presi Belle for the Peter Rixon stable appeals as one of the day’s stronger hopes.
Another runner drawn in gate 10, Im Presi Belle was an easy winner at Canberra recently.
This followed a strong effort in the $30,000 NSW Breeders Challenge Region Final at Newcastle behind Girl From Oz.
Im Presi Belle is the winner of 6 of her 28 starts and will be driven by Will Rixon.
Following Monday’s race day, the club switches to Sunday dates with racing being programmed for the 2nd and 9th of January 2022.
