The Tatura and Shepparton Racing Club presented a strong seven-race-card for its Foott Waste Girls Day Out meeting on Saturday, with young 3
And while the fields were not overly big, the challenge was still there to pick a winner, with a number of Tatura trainers mixing it with the big boys.
Leading Victorian trainer Peter Moody saddled up two horses in the opening race with Not So Pure (Daniel Stackhouse) proving too strong for stablemate Miss Delveen (Jake Duffy), and the popular quinella paid $4.60.
It was then the McNeil show began after he rode a superb race to get the Leanne Smith-trained Jade Raider across the line in the Phoenix Design Maiden Plate over 1600
Neil followed up in the third race, the Tatura Hot Bread 0-68 Handicap, when he scored on the Kevin Evans-trained Ustodothat, much to the delight of local punters and the large group of owners.
Evans said after the race Ustodothat did well.
‘‘It was a strong win,’’ he added.
Neil’s third win came in the final race, the Fire Up Centrebet Class 1 Handicap, after another strong ride he got the Peter Smith-trained Armona Home, paying $5.10 on SuperTab.
The ride of the day arguably went to Ruth Bradley, who gave a brilliant display of front riding on the Mark Loft-trained King’s A Star to demolish a handy field in the Broker House 0-62 Handicap over 1980
King’s A Star led from start to finish and pulled away from all challengers in the concluding stages of the race.
Tatura and Shepparton Racing Club president Darryl Gorman said he was pleased with the good crowd, which built up as the day went on.
Mr Gorman praised the committee and staff for their work in the lead-up to the meeting and on the day and thanked sponsors for their ongoing support of the club.
