There could be bigger things ahead for two winners at Monday's Seymour Racing Club meeting.

The field is getting serious in the Ladies Day June 12 Maiden Plate (1100m) at the Seymour Racing Club meeting on Monday. Eventual winner Assertive Union (green) is making his run from last as Ella Supero (inside, fourth) and Sterno (blue, second) appear to be battling it out and Comic's Professor (third) is tucked in behind looking to come through.


It seems a bit strange that a prominent country racecourse like Seymour gets assigned lowly Monday meetings, but there was no doubting the quality of horseflesh on display earlier this week.

Some of the best fields you’d see for a Monday meeting anywhere took part in a 10-race card, with many top jockeys coming up the Hume Fwy as well.

The Peter Moody and Mark Kavanagah stables unveiled a couple of promising debutants, Assertive Union and Callahan, which won the first two races on the card for Luke Nolen and Glen Boss respectively.

A reminder that the Seymour Racing Club’s next racemeeting is a big one, Ladies Day on June 12. Packages are still available from the club, phone 57991681 for more information or to book.

Park snaps to it to build croc new home
