Leeton Mini Trots at Griffith Carnival of Cups

Once again the Leeton Mini Trotting Club were invited to Dalton Park by the Griffith Harness Racing Club to race at their Carnival of Cups Meeting on 9th November 2019. Ten Leeton Club ponies and their drivers took up the invitation and competed in three races over the evening - the third being the Mini Cup Race.

Unfortunately, Little Midget stood down after the first race, when driver Rosie Reay parted company with her pony and gig on the home turn. In true Mini Trots style , Lilah Trewin gave Rosie the drive on Seven for the Cup race to finish the night in a happier way! Nice work Lilah!!!
