You’d Bettor believe it


YOUNG Trafalgar horsewoman Tamie Frith will be seeking her biggest success in trotting on Easter Sunday.

Frith’s horse Bettor Biaggi will compete in the rich Ken Miller Memorial Pace event at Warragul, one of the feature races on the traditional Warragul Cup raceday.

Bettor Biaggi finished second in a qualifying division of the Miller event at Warragul on 23 March and will be one of several Gippsland horses to compete in the race.

Frith is involved in trotting as a hobby.

Her partner Glenn Hunter will steer Bettor Biaggi in the race.

She has a soft spot for the galloper, who has yet to win a race but has finished in the minor placings five times from 13 race starts.

Frith turned an interest in the trotting sport into a hands-on involvement after she competed a certificate course at the Gippsland Harness Racing Training Centre several years ago.

One of many graduates of the centre who have gone on to train their own horses, Frith has enjoyed previous success, both as a trainer and as a reinswoman, and has also gained valuable experience working in local stables. Looking to take some of the family spotlight away from Tamie and Hunter on Easter Sunday will be Hunter’s father Chris, who has Feel The Rhythm running in the Ken Miller race.

Chris Hunter will also start his smart horse Dawn Tears in the Trotters Cup event.

The Hunter stable is racing consistently at present and hopes to be rewarded with success on the biggest day on the local trotting calendar.

Warragul trotting officials are hoping that good weather should draw a crowd of close to 1000 to the Logan Park track for a day of racing that will kick off at about noon.
