Race 1 held no glory for Crockett however, as Turramurra ($51) struggled to find a place in the race.

It was Mark Milton from Gulgong that was in the winning mix for the opening bout, as Dynamite Dan ($8.50) fell just short of Mark Hatch’s A L’Ouest ($5.50) and still placed second.

Coonamble’s Cecil Hodgson also found a place in the day, coming in third with Arlington’s Pick ($5), although the finish was disappointing considering the filly was the race favourite.

She was beaten out by Annecy ($6) and Supreme Goddess ($15) in the 1620m race.

The best haul of the day went to Crockett as he traveled to the Country TAB meeting however, as both Barbass and Kingsbridge took first place finishes in their separate events.

Barbass ($1.26F) was the clear favourite in the race and delivered on the promise, beating out Pastiche ($26) and Quint Australis ($91), while Hodgson’s Pedro’s Zariz ($26) came in 6th.

His second win came through Kingsbride ($2.40F) in the Dubbo Class 1 & Maiden Plate run at 1620m, as the gelding also met odds in pipping Big Ben the Clock ($2.90) and Just Schillin’ ($10) to the post in the $20,000 event.
