IT’S A TIE: MCFARLANE AND DUGGAN SHARE GOSFORD’S TRAINERS PREMIERSHIP HONOURS
Written by John Drummond
It was an absorbing battle with the two Gosford trainers challenging for the Premiership throughout the whole year. McFarlane landed 12 winners to win his 2nd consecutive trainer’s title with his galloper Liberty Sun winning at Canterbury late last year. Adam Duggan’s 12 wins came at a very healthy strike-rate of 23%, including the promising Miss Fox, who has won three races from only 4 outings.
“I would like to congratulate both Adam and Greg for their achievement this season. Greg has been pretty consistent and is becoming more regular at the Metro tracks. Adam has hit a bit of a purple patch with a couple of really promising horses in ‘Sir Elton’ and ‘Miss Fox’. I wish them and all of the Gosford trainers well in 2020/21” Daniel Lacey CEO Gosford Race Club stated.
Luke Hilton closely finished behind with ten wins, including recent winning doubles at Moruya and Dubbo.
Angela Davies came second in terms of prize money with Provincial Championship winner ‘Through The Cracks’ who has spelled well and is now back in full work preparing for races in the Spring.
Kylie Gavenlock finished the season with 9 wins, including 1 in town when ‘Wild About Her’ saluted on the Kensington track in early May.
Tony Newing rounded out the top 5 with 8 wins for the season including another successful Grafton Carnival with ‘Gogh Fox’ picking up a win.
Kris Lees won the Gosford Trainers Premiership with 10 wins, Jason Collett won the Gosford Riders Premiership with 8 wins and Tom Sherry won the Gosford Apprentice Premiership with 7 wins.
The hard-working Gosford trainers are looking forward to battling out the riches of the new 2020-2021 season.
