ABR, and our good partners Summit Bloodstock, came away with a treble in consecutive races.

All three winners were trained by Darren Elder, his son Brad drove two, and Blake Hughes, the other.

Mykindoffeeling, going for his second win in a week following an easy victory at Newcastle on

Shift ($5.50) was two metres away third.

ABR had two runners in the Office National Pace (1609m).

Booker Bay ($2.90), driven by Brad Elder came from gate five while Lord Bazalup ($2.60 fav), with
Blake Hughes in the sulky, started from gate seven, barrier one on the second row.

Elder had Booker Bay away quickly to find the lead while Lord Bazalup settled three back on the

Rated perfectly, Booker Bay looked in control of the race turning for home, but Hughes was able to

The three wins netted $11,016 – not bad in an hour.
