IN a riding display that finally rewarded her
talent, local jockey Sophie Logan produced a
masterful performance on Sunday at the Woola-
mai picnic races to land a winning double.
While it was the first time Logan had tasted
victory on her home track this season from the
two meetings to date, it was just a matter of time
before she broke through and may prove a cata-
lyst for future success.
In mild conditions with the gentlest of ocean
breezes present, conditions were tailor made for
an afternoon at the races and the on track action
The opening event on the six race card saw the
Cranbourne trained Mr Gogarty demolish his
rivals by an ever increasing 12 length margin.
Giving jockey Maddison Morris an armchair
ride throughout, Mr Gogarty simply outstayed
the rest of the field and a career over the jumps
beckons for the seven year old.
Trainer Ray Caldwell was keen to point out the
ability of his horse over hurdles and was ada-
mant plans were afoot for this in the future.
Race 2 saw the first of Sophie Logan’s winning
rides and was also an excellent result for the lo-
cals in the training ranks with Last One Laugh-
ing bringing up victory number four from just
The horse is trained at Corinella by Shae
Eden, who is enjoying a superlative run with his
charges of late.
Recent wins at Moonee Valley and Flemington
as well as the provincial tracks have again put
the Eden stable in the spotlight.
However Shae no doubt still derives great sat-
isfaction from winning races at Woolamai.
Last One Laughing was positioned well by Lo-
gan and proved too classy in the run to the post.
Race 3 went to Cranbourne trained four year
old Mystyko, giving win number two to Sophie.
In a polished riding display, the horse looked
well balanced in the run and was given every
chance of victory.
Stride by stride Mystyko was able to gain
the ascendancy over adversaries up the home
straight and prevail in a tight finish.
In racing or indeed most sports, when there
is little separating competitors, tactical su-
premacy is at a premium and once again Logan
has proven she can more than match it with her
rivals in that department.
The fourth race on the card went to the Morn-
ington trained My Running Mate, ridden by the
picnic circuit’s leading jockey Courtney Pace.
Racing just off the speed, My Running Mate
rounded up the leaders with 100 metres to go
and proved too classy for the rest of the field.
Horses travel kindly for Pace and this race
was no exception, with both horse and rider al-
ways looking to have rivals covered throughout.
Race 5 saw the Cranbourne trained Barley
Mo breakthrough for win number one, giving
jockey Max Keenan his first win for the day.
Keenan was able to take advantage of his
horse being more seasoned than others in the
field and rode with guile and experience to
guide the mare home.
The day’s final event went to the Seymour
trained La Rita, ridden by Reece Goodwin.
The horse is proving a consistent money
spinner for connections and was able to surge
to victory in another competitive finish.
With challengers coming thick and fast all
the way up the straight, La Rita and Goodwin
would not be denied and clung on to score a
Once again a good sized crowd was on course
to witness all the action and Kelly Sports were
at hand to provide fun, free and fully super-
vised activities throughout the afternoon.
Club president Rob Carmichael commented:
“It’s great to see so many families here today
with the picnic rugs out and the Kelly Sports
activities are proving exceedingly popular.
“Also local Bass Coast businesses are again
supportive with sponsorship and all this sets
up well for our next meeting on January 20th.”
