Narrabri’s perfect dilemma

Narrabri’s perfect dilemma

The Northern Daily Leader Julie Maughan 2 Mar 2017, 11:44 a.m

Narrabri will feature harness racing again this Sunday with their big Carnival of Cups meeting presenting an eight race program.

Rubbers Dilemma from the Tony Missen stables will make a return in the opening event after the filly scored her first career win last week at Narrabri from six race starts. The win surprised Missen who trains the Blissful Hall filly – and races her along with Alan Tinden, Tamworth HRC Board member Greg McDonell and Bob Peterson – as the filly had only been in the stables for two weeks.

Michelle Payne creates history with 100-1 win in Cup

Story Courtesy - Sunshine Coast Daily

UPDATE: MICHELLE Payne has created history at the 2015 Melbourne Cup by winning on outsider Prince of Penzance.

Payne was the only female jockey in the race and her horse was a $101 to 1 shot - only the fourth of such long odds to win the race.

"I can't believe it! The most funny thing is that my sister, Margaret, and I both had a feeling that I was going to win and I actually had a really strong feeling I was going to win,'' Payne said.

"But I thought, "Oh, don't be stupid, it's the Melbourne Cup" and it turned out exactly how I thought it would!
