Home track gives the winning edge
RACES: Home track advantage proved to give Clouds, trained by Lindsay Anderson, the winning edge to take home the Wondai Cup.
Hannah English guided Clouds to victory in the geldings first race after a three month break.
"I thought the horse would run a very good race but first race run back from a break I thought the last hundred he might have been looking for an oxygen tank but he fought it out well,” Anderson said.
"It was very well ridden and he got an easy run in front which he doesn't need and even Hannah said she couldn't believe how soft he got it out there by himself.”
Roy Radunz, the races namesake has been with the club for 57 years and remembers the days when Anderson's grandfather was training horses and winning races.
He said it was a great pleasure to see the tradition continue in the family and present the cup to Anderson.
Clouds will be looking for another win at Saturday's Gympie cup.
Anderson scored two wins on the day with Solgaze taking out the 850m handicap.
Classic Beau, trained by Matt Boland, won the 1100m maiden plate.
The class two 1100m plate went to Echoing, trained by Stephen Kirkwood.
In the 1465m handicap Elusive Element trained by Trevor Thomas took line honours, in the geldings first race at the Wondai track.
