A dry but windy evening saw 12 Westies lining up at Blanefield Monument for the 3rd annual Dumgoyne Handicap. Expert handicapper Jenny constantly shuffled the times until finally all the runners were off. First back in the impressively fast time of 46:44 was John Donnelly. Nige and I scored a dead heat with 43:23 as the fastest time of the evening, despite setting off a minute apart. Elsie recorded a new ladies record of 54:47.
