It was a day of success for one Seymour trainer at last Thursday’s meet at the Seymour Racecourse.

The David Bourne-trained Bessano, ridden by Michael Walker, took home the race six win in the $30000 Mighty Contracting Showcase BM70 Handicap (2015m).

In its first start, the Lee and Shannon Hope-trained Abbreviate (New Zealand) missed taking home the win in race four, placing second in the $17500 Talwood Park Aqua Walker Maiden Plate (1209m).

The duo’s Roshaca also placed second in the final race of the day, race eight: the Parker Bros Earthmoving 0-64 Handicap (1309m).

Seymour Racing Club chief executive Penny Reeve said last Thursday’s event put on a great show of racing for the crowd.

Reeve said the race four winner, Timah, was the first race back for jockey Steve King after some time away from the sport.

‘‘Everyone was pleased with the win and the horse was most impressive,’’ she said.

She said there was some controversy in the first race with the disqualification of Zuhayr, ridden by jockey Daniel Moor after issues with the weighing.

The next meet at Seymour Racecourse will take place on Thursday, February 13.
