Race One: BARFOOT & THOMPSON Pacorus Darren Danis Won

Caught three wide but she didn't handle the heavy conditions.
Race Three: AUCKLAND CO-OP TAXIS
Lupelani Rebecca Scott
Race Four: STELLA ARTOIS 1200
Amusez Moi Michael Coleman
Nice run. A little new and a little lost but ran nice.
Race Five: OTAKIRI RESERVE 1200 Molto Veloce Danielle Johnson
She was pretty big in condition. She will take improvement from the run. The track was very holding which she struggled with.

I messed up.
Race Seven: BARFOOT & THOMPSON 1600
Obsessive Troy Harris
Tough run fresh-up over a mile on testing ground.
