Gibbo Chasing more Success with McEvoy

Jockey Andrew Gibbons hopes to build on his outstanding strike rate for trainer Tony McEvoy at Hawkesbury tomorrow - and in the process launch his quest for more provincial winners this season. The hard-working Gibbons has a near 50 per cent record (six winners from only 14 rides) for McEvoy since the latter set up a NSW base at Hawkesbury last year and didn't baulk at the chance to strengthen a blossoming association. He will ride Frost Dodger (Ontrak Engineering Class 2 Handicap, 1800m) and Tigerish (Hawkesbury Race Club Motel Class 2 Handicap, 1400m) - the same two horses he partnered at the Taree Cup carnival opener on August 22. Both horses are five-year-olds and were resuming that day, having not raced since late February.

Theres plenty of life in the old girl yet

There's plenty of life in the "old girl" yet! Hawkesbury mare Carry On Singing, now a seven-year-old, notched another city success when she scored at Warwick Farm today. In the process, she gave her trainer Ethne Potowski another great thrill and enabled her to upstage Sydney's record-breaking trainer Chris Waller.
Starting at $20, Carry On Singing sustained a strong run wide out in the straight to outstay the Waller pair Scarletini ($7.50) and $5 favorite Pentometer in the Benchmark 75 Handicap (2400m). Waller actually had four representatives, with Made To Order ($6.50) and Plenty Special ($8.50) finishing sixth and eighth respectively.

Theirs Choice Race Hopefully A Jewel

Hawsbery trainer Warwick Hailes' attention to detail hopefully will bring him a just reward on his home track tomorrow. His sole runner Remlaps Jewel contests the Hawkesbury Gazette Class 1 Handicap (1000m) - but it wasn't a race he had originally targeted. In fact, Hailes nominated the mare for three races on consecutive days - including Canterbury today and Wyong on Friday. But he told Remlaps Jewel's managing part-owner Wayne Palmer that he would keep an eye on the Hawkesbury event in case nominations fell short and were extended. And that is exactly what happened.
