What’s the only thing rarer than racing at Quambone? A dead-heat at the racing at Quambone.

Parkes trainer Sharon Jeffries had won the recent Cups at Trangie and Grenfell with Rehanaat but had to share the spoils with Moree trainer Peter Sinclair when Rehanaat finished a dead heat for first with Track  Flash in the CJ & AM Pastoral Company Marthaguy Picnic Cup (1400 metres) at Quambone on Saturday.

Ridden by Hawkesbury based Michael Wade, Rehanaat ($2 favourite) led for home from Hyacintha and Edge Of Madness before Track Flash (Ricky Blewitt, $3.50) gained an inside run to draw level on the line with Rehanaat while Cuban Lass ( Shannon Fogg, $3 ) was over four lengths away third.

Sharon Jeffries had earlier won the O’Brien Winter & Partners Class 2 Handicap (1200 metres) with Armedanddangerous (Michael Wade, $2.60) which led throughout.

George Wright who is also a trainer at Parkes had a busy day, winning at Cobar with Stravali and at Quambone with Choppa ridden by Narromine based Ricky Blewitt in the Sundowner Pub & Quambone Roo Shooters Class 1 Handicap,1400 metres.

Choppa ($3.50) raced close to the pace and won by over three lengths from Festival Of Light (Ridge Wilson, $2.50 fav.) and One Eye Watching (Alan Barton, $7).

Nyngan trainer Rodney Robb also supported both meetings winning with Northern Myth and Lucienne at Cobar and at Quambone with Retreat Star (Ridge Wilson, $1.70 fav.) which took out the Earth N Beauty Maiden Plate,1100 metres.
