Sydney Ego in Moran’s way

Chasing Cup glory: Lochinvar Art and trainer David Moran will want to bounce back after running second in the Shepparton Cup last week when they contest the Ballarat Cup.

Shepparton-trained pacing hero Lochinvar Art has not one but two Belinda McCarthy-prepared pacers to contend with in tomorrow night’s lucrative Ballarat Pacing Cup.

And McCarthy’s second and more highly regarded runner, Expensive Ego, who joins stablemate Spirit Of St Louis in the $110,000 feature, is a pacer Moran is familiar with.

He’s the pacer Moran drove to victory in the Inter Dominion final a month ago at Menangle, only to be deprived of the win by the Shepparton-owned Boncel Benjamin on a protest.

Trial form: A pacer named Barnaby, trained by Steve O’Donoghue and Bec Bartley, trialled at Shepparton last night, let’s hope he was a bit more interested in proceedings than his namesake Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce was in parliament yesterday.

Shepp News - Pacing For Pink

PINK DAY AT TROTS A BOTTLER

Trotting: Pony trots dressed in pink for breast cancer awareness.

A successful day was had at Shepparton Harness Racing Club on Sunday, with organisers of the Pacing for Pink event expecting more than $50,000 will be raised for the McGrath Foundation.

Co-organiser Donna Castles, from Ardmona, said everyone who attended had a great day out with about 240 people attending the breast cancer fundraising lunch on top of the those involved in the racing card. “The day was amazing,” Castles said. “I can’t believe the support we got from the people that turned up.

“We had the racing, the pony trots and it was a real carnival atmosphere and the weather was perfect.”

With the result of a silent auction to come, Castles said she was overwhelmed by the support.

“Thanks everyone in the whole harness industry, the Shepp harness club for letting us hold the event there and everyone who helped out — it was just amazing.”

As part of the lunch, candles were lit as a reminder of hope and support for those who are battling breast cancer or have lost a family member or friend to the disease.
