Big event at Seymour follows busy racing schedule.By Chalpat Sonti
Seymour racecourse has been through a busy period recently with several racemeetings being held, but it will host something a bit different this week.

Here the six-horse field all appears in with a chance in the Centrebet Fire Up Handicap (1200m) with eventual winner Sound Of The Ocean (one from the left) seemingly more interested in posing for the camera. But the half-brother to champion sprinter Hay List soon got a move on to land some big bets and nose out locally-trained Roshaca and Graceland (obscured) in a tight finish.
