Tough night for trainers in Mildura

Rob Wayman and Anthony Camilleri were back out in Mildura on the weekend for another night of harness racing.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t the best night for our local trainers with some tough competition outdoing their steeds.
Camilleri had just the two horses racing on the night with his first in race one.
The DNR Logistics Pace saw his eight-year-old bay gelding Cityscape finish down the middle order in seventh.
Cityscape was one and three back at the bell and driver Kerryn Manning was unable to chase down the leaders.
Favourite Freds A Safari took out first place with Fergus Mactavish and Did It Alone finishing second and third respectively.
Camilleri’s other runner was Kismear in the Sunraysia Daily Pace.
Kismear showed plenty of speed early but ultimately finished the race in seventh.
Wayman’s Circle Line was also running in the Pace and was behind the leader in Ellehigh at the bell.
However, Circle Line and Ellehigh both dropped down the order while the outside leader Outback Hall went onto the win.
Ellehigh crossed the line in third while Circle Line went over the line in last place.
Wayman’s Montana Madge also had a tough night, finishing second to last in the Mallee Bearings Pace.
Montana Madge had the second longest odds to win the race with the rest of the field proving too strong.
Captain Under Fire took out the race with Electric Ollie and Prima Tapia following soon after.
