The RACV Summer Cup along with the Michael Toohey Memorial Vicbred Pace and John Brooks Memorial Trotters Handicap will feature on Cobram harness racing’s program today.

Honouring two of the club’s highly valued and long serving committeemen from the past era, the memorial races bearing their names are a tribute to two fine gentlemen, who never sought acclamation, but were the first to put their hand up when there was work to be done.

The voluntary contribution of these two men was second to none and spanned countless years; their names now stand side by side on the life members’ roll of honour.

The club is most appreciative to Vin Toohey and Glenice Brooks who have generously provided trophies for the memorial races.

The field in the RACV Summer Cup is all class with some of the state’s leading reinsmen at the helm.

No doubt the David Farrar and Riley Fortin team will be out to repeat their November success in the Barooga Sports Club Pace Final with Gangster Boy.

Having drawn barrier three they are in the prime position if all goes to plan to take home the inscribed rug and trophy sponsored by Cobram Resort.

Stephen Boyington driving Lombo Break Thru is certain not to let his Kialla rivals have it all their own way and could snatch his second Cobram win in three weeks.

Likewise in the Michael Toohey Memorial, the Farrar/Fortin duo will be hoping to complete a double for the afternoon with My Mums A Star.

However, dual leaders at this point of time in the Drivers Premiership, Nathan Jack behind Only A Copy and Chris Alford on Dicky Beach, will not let them have it all their own way as they seek to add to their Premiership points.

Skilled trainer and reinsman of Starlight Lee, John Newberry looks to have the John Brooks Memorial Trotters Handicap in his keeping if his charge steps away cleanly.
