Timed to perfection

SCOTT Seamer guided Bradfield home in a perfectly-timed race to win the Tweed Tourism Cup yesterday.

Top weight Bradfield was just behind the leaders for most of the 1400m race, but when the pack entered the straight the pre-race favourite powered ahead and won comfortably ahead of Bolton Abbey and Bulimba.

Trainer Danny Bowen backed Bradfield as long overdue for a win ahead of Destination Tweed Race Day and the gelding delivered on his confidence.

The win continues Bowen’s success at the Tweed River Jockey Club.

“Danny Bowen for years has done well at Murwillumbah and in the Northern Rivers Trainers Association Premiership he is always in the leading division,” racing journalist Stephen Senise said.

“He has got a very good track record at Murwillumbah, there is no two ways about it, and he continues to do well.”

The enthusiastic crowd had an enjoyable Monday afternoon of racing action.

Winner of race one, the Outrigger Twin Towns Resort Maiden Plate over 1530m was pre-race favourite Geneva Gold, with Our Rubyjean and Miss Caulfield rounding out the top three.

Bossboss took out the 1200m Tweed Daily News Maiden Handicap ahead of Rattle and Roll and Hidden Woman.

The 1000m Rainbow Bay Realty Maiden Plate was won by Boardies, with Vintage Dom in second and Hentiesbaai in third.

Race four, the Twin Towns Clubs and Resorts Class 1 Handicap 100m was Northern Praise. My Kirra was second and Piccolo Royal third.

Sittinbul won race five, the Destination Tweed Bm60 Handicap over 2000m, with Eye Might in second and County Raider third. The final race of the day, the Tweed Coast Holiday Parks 1200m handicap, was won by Legal Star ahead of Sir Qualo and At The Roxy.
