'Twas the night before Christmas...
Dec 24, 2016
On Christmas Eve while most people will be last minute Christmas shopping at Chadstone, we will be down the road at Ladbrokes Park in Sandown.
Rewarding Effort runs in Race 6, the Ladbrokes Up for the Challenge Handicap. This will be a pretty competitive race but coming off a strong win at Mornington last week, hopefully he can continue in his winning vein.
He has been very bright and well in himself at home since that last start. This race should setup nicely for him and we will be expecting a big run. Mark Zahra takes the ride.
After the races it'll be back to the farm at Bayles for a big Christmas Eve dinner with the family. Not too much of a holiday for the team though as we have Smart Dart heading to Caulfield on Boxing Day.
Whatever you are doing, I hope you have a lovely Christmas and looking forward to a bigger and better year ahead for the stable in 2017!
