Canberra Racing Review Friday 24 April 2020

Three favourites won on the day and most of the remaining races were won by horses well in the market. The real upset was Whycatchim’s win in the Federal, having his first start for Luke Pepper yard. Blaike McDougall took riding honours with a double and the training honours were equally shared.


Wren’s Day created plenty of interest competing in the final race and got the favourite punters home.

Today 87 people at Thoroughbred Park were provided the Influenza Vaccine in the interest of minimising illness and the impact on health services in the coming months. The Canberra Racing Club arranged this on behalf of the staff of the Club and also provided the opportunity for tenants and the stables within Thoroughbred Park. This initiative was directly implemented to assist The Club’s main aim during the COVID 19 crisis to protect the health and safety of our Staff and Racing Industry participants.
