WITH the sun shining brightly above and the
weather keeping punters warm and happy all
day, the Woolamai and District Racing Club put
on yet another excellent day of racing.
On a gloriously perfect late summer’s day,
hundreds of spectators turned out to watch
the six races finishing with the Wonthaggi Adult
Riding Club Trophy won by Corinella trainer
Shea Eden’s Rock It Doc.
Jockey Reece Goodwin also had a great day,
winning two races.
Last season Reece rode 30 winners and so far
this season he has ridden the winners of 26 races,
with the latest being Charles Filou at Yea on Sunday.
Reece rode The Flying Doormat to first place
in race two on Saturday, followed shortly by
Code It in the third.
Race 3 also saw mother and daughter, Debbie
Waymouth and Dani Walker, racing against one an-
other on Sir Wold and Hell Of A Mess respectively.
Female jockey, Maddison Morris, raced in
race four and six, despite having only been rac-
ing professionally since Christmas.
Before that, the 26 year old was working in
the industry riding track work.
“I always wanted to be a jockey, but I was too
heavy!” Maddison said.
“I just love the horses and I enjoy all aspects
of racing, really. Before I was a jockey I worked
in the industry for seven years.
“It’s a brilliant day today, and I’ll be riding for
Richard Lamming and Troy and John Kilgower
The warm weather drew the crowds, with
busloads of people relaxing beneath the shade
of the track’s oak trees.
Fashions on the field were eye-popping and
bright, in a salute to the dwindling last days of
summer, and a boisterous hen’s party reflected
the joyous, carefree mood of the day.
NORTHERN Ireland’s Jonathan Rea has
done the double on his Kawasaki, winning the
world superbike race two clash at Phillip Is-
land in a nail-biting finish against arch rival,
Ducati’s Chaz Davies.
It was the home away from home victory for
Rea, who is married to Phillip Island’s Tatia
Weston and spends summer at the island,
and the adopted Islander celebrated after the
race with his local supporters.
It was an intense battle for 22 laps, and it
all boiled down to an extremely tight duel be-
tween Rea and Davies on the final lap.
This time Rea kept his arch rival at bay
by 0.025 seconds, with his combined win-
ning margin over Davies in the two races just
The win on Sunday followed his win in race
one on Saturday.
It’s the second consecutive clean sweep for
Rea at the 4.445km grand prix circuit, and he
now joins Carl Fogarty, Aussie Troy Bayliss
and Noriyuki Haga in the exclusive WorldSBK
‘40s’ winning club.
