THE St Kilda Football Club returns to
Gippsland next month as part of this year’s
AFL Community Camp program.
After spending two days in Morwell, Moe
and Traralgon last year, the Saints will visit
Foster and Wonthaggi from February 17-18.
The club will participate in various com-
munity activities, visit hospitals and care fa-
cilities, assist with training session for local
football players aged 12-18 years and con-
duct a superclinic for local primary school
students from Toora through to Tarwin Val-
ley at the Foster Football Netball Club.
Fourteen players are expected to make the
trip, with an official function to be held at
The Wonthaggi Club on the Friday night.
Last year’s camp was a great success and
with plenty of past and present local talent
on their list – including current stars Tim
Membrey (Traralgon), Sean Dempster (Mal-
lacoota) and Koby Stevens (Lucknow) – the
Saints have plenty of fans in Gippsland.
“St Kilda is a club on the rise on-field and
off-field,” AFL Gippsland region general man-
ager Travis Switzer said.
“These camps have been extremely well
received in the past and we look forward to
giving more fans of all ages an opportunity to
rub shoulders with AFL footballers.”
Tickets for the official function are now

eight, visit www.trybooking.com/OFRN or

WHAT a day it was at the Woola-
mai Races last Saturday.
It was simply perfect.
The weather was ideal, at about
22 degrees and with a light breeze
blowing to keep the heat down and
the flies at bay.
And there was a big happy crowd
in under the big shady elm trees or
out on the lawn enjoying a heady
mix of exciting racing on the local
track, plenty of races in Melbourne
and interstate to bet on, plenty of
refreshments and food options,
great company and some enter-
tainment for the kids.
It was just a lovely day to be
relaxing at one of the best picnic
racecourses in Victoria.
But there was nearly disaster in
the first race when experienced
jockey Matt Corbisiero had to
make a hasty dismount from his
horse Wicked Within who lived up
to his name by bucking and lung-
ing after it came out of the barri-
“At one stage I thought he was
going to jump through the outside
rail,” said a relieved Corbisiero af-
ter the race.
“There wasn’t much else I could
The race was exciting for all the
right reasons as well with jockey
Caitlin King rating her horse, Rapid
Rapport, superbly down the outside
to win narrowly from Three Handles.
Reece Goodwin stretched his lead
in the jockey’s premiership at Woola-
mai with an easy four lengths win on
Bojoura in the second race.
Having attempted the 2000 me-
tres at Balnarring two weeks earlier,
Goodwin said after the race at Woola-
mai on Saturday that Bojoura had
benefitted from coming back to the
1600 metres, a fine training feat by
Max King of Cranbourne.

All clear now for
Woolamai’s big day
Courtney Pace judged the third race to perfection, bringing Bellefontein down the outside to pip Toucandan on the line. m310417
The million-dollar breeding of this horse, Taqneen (by Lonhro,
out of Makybe Diva) didn’t assure it of success, beaten into third at
Woolamai Picnics last Saturday. Chatting with the connections after
race two was jockey Courtney Pace. m280417
