Mugga Lane takes out 20th Sundowner Cup

From Cooma Monaro Express 4/12/12
Mugga Lane won the $12,500 Cooma Ex-Services Club-Jemena 20th Sundowners Cup by more than two lengths at the 2012 Cooma Race meet at the Ti Tree Racecourse on Saturday.

Ridden by female jockey Winona Costin and trained by Braidwood's Aaron Clarke, the six-year-old, was unstoppable in the 1,400 metre feature race.

The win saw Costin nab her first career double after riding Rhythmic Chimes first over the finish line in the 1600m Monaro's Farming Experts Class 2 Handicap earlier in the day.

Female jockeys were the stars of this year's Cooma Races riding all six winners at the meet.
Sebony took out the other feature race the $12,500 Cooma Nissan Cooma Cup. Ridden by Kristen Smart for Sapphire Coast trainer Chris Strickland, the nine-year-old, edged out the winner of the Snowgoose Hotel Motel Adaminaby Cup Back To Zero for the win. Sebony also won the Cooma Cup in 2009 and won the Bombala Cup in October. For Smart, the win made it her first career treble.
She rode Ballydoyle to a win in the first race of the day, over 1,000 metres and backed up in race two, the Monaro's Leading Suppliers Maiden Plate with a win on Yambulla.

Presidents Message

Last year we were again a finalist in the NSW Country Racing awards, which we have been in for the last eight to 10 years and won three times.

This year is the 20th anniversary of the Sundowner's Cup and we are anticipating good fields.

Our two feature races, the Sundowners and Cooma Cup have attracted prizemoney of $12,500 each this year and the total prize ppol is a record for the club.

We are expecting about 20 bookmakers this year, and they, together with the TAB, will ensure our punters are very well catered for.

I'd like to thank the community for all their support in the the Community Race Club Award, which is borne out by the support of local businesses, and their support of this feature. Without this support we could not put this meeting on.

I also thank the service clubs who work on the day to provide a fantastic atmosphere which culminates in a great social event for the local community.

We are looking forward to a great day's racing and a successful fashions on the field competition.

All our usual amenities - bar, barbecue, tote and the big screen will again be available.

I'd lik to thank the committee for all their hard work throughout the year in putting on a fantastic race day. The track is looking food and we are looking forward to good field's and a great day's racing.
