• NSW MINI TROTS

Holiday flavour to mini-trotting event


THE Christmas spirit was alive and well at the Leeton Mini Trotting Club when they raced at Leeton Harness Racing Club's December 8 pre-Christmas meeting.

Many of the mini drivers changed their colours for the night and dressed in a Christmas theme for three races.

Unfortunately the heat prevented Santa and his elves from racing, as had been planned, but a number of the children included custom-made Santa hats over their helmets.

The ponies didn't miss out either, plaited with Christmas ribbon, tinselled all over and wearing a variety of reindeer antlers.

Leeton welcomed visiting drivers from West Wyalong and regular race-caller Chris Judd scored a drive on Riverina pony Energiser, leaving his father Terry to call for the evening.

Race one had Little Secret driven to victory by the experienced Alanah Pitt.

Second-place was a hard-fought affair with West Wyalong pony Sunshine, driven by Ava Lemon, just pipping Cinderella at the post for the prize money.

Cindy's driver, Siarne Deeves, still greeted the judge with a smile and was more than satisfied with a third to start the night.

Race two had eternal favourite Goldstar carrying Ryan Pitt across the line in first, followed by Nikkita Smith driving this season's newest pony, Seven, for a second and Hannah Pitt on Turbo made up the prize winners.

Dylan Smith made race three his own on the ever-improving Demascus, picking up plenty of pace to finish well ahead of the field.

The two minor placings were taken out by the Lemon boys, with Jaxon driving Oprah to second and Zane crossing third with Tilly.

Chris Judd finished consistently in all three races and although he didn't make the winner's circle, he provided plenty for spectators to look at as he steered Energiser around the track in style.

Leeton Mini Trotters will meet next on Boxing Day at Lin Gordon Paceway and members are looking forward to a large and vocal crowd.

Drivers and committee members wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy new year.
