Capacity fields for Anzac Day

RACES: As Paradiski crossed the line to win the first race of the day at the Anzac Day races in Wondai it was cause for great celebration for Scott Pedron.

Pedron owns the horse with his wife Kym, his parents Karen and Athol and friends George and Vesna from Melbourne, having bought the horse a couple of weeks ago in an auction.

Pedron of Nanango has been training horses for 10 years and has been training Paradiski at Kumbia.

He was pleased with her performance on Wednesday.

"She has been going well in training but it is hard to get a good idea because it is her first run on a sand track and first start,” he said.

"You don't know how they are going to go but I knew that if she put her best foot forward she would be a good chance.”

"She was lucky today that she jumped really well and got to the front and never got headed.”

It was a big day of racing at Wondai with capacity fields on the track for the club's annual event.
