A pair of outsiders highlight a low-key day.CHALPAT SONTI June 19, 2014 3:44am
There's often more going on at the start of a horse race than just gettuing underway, as this picture taken at the start of the Railway Club Hotel Handicap at the Seymour Racing Club meeting on Thursday shows. The eventual winner Tramcar Johnny is second from the right, one further out Letsgetsideways is doing exactly that, while on the extreme left El Gaucho, a horse with local connections, is almost on his haunches before taking a sudden right turn.
The weather might have contributed to Ladies Day being a lower-key race meeting than usual at Seymour on Thursday, but it did set one record.
When Masked Invader, pictured here winning the Mangalore Park Maiden, saluted the judge he was the second longshot to get up, following Runhardt in the previous event.

They combined for a running double of $3704.80, which is a Victorian TAB record for a non-metropolitan meeting.
