A good bet

THERE’S no doubting that Coffs Harbour trainer Gordon Yorke is enjoying some good results trackside at the moment.

Yesterday Yorke trained two winners at Grafton to show that he’s ready to have a real crack on Sunday at Coffs Harbour for The Coffs Coast Advocate race day.

Yorke’s Armero and Cap Vilano weren’t the only Coffs Harbour horses to salute the judge yesterday.

Brett Dodson also recorded a win later in the day when Brom’s Girl edged out Civita in the final race of the day.

All eyes are set to be on Coffs Harbour this Sunday in what is always a huge family day trackside. This year there will also be a concerted effort to raise funds for Camp Quality.

“On a local perspective the Advocate Race Day has always been very much a family fun day and is ideal to promote awareness and assist fundraising for such a worthwhile organisation as Camp Quality,” Coffs Harbour Racing Club CEO Russ Atkinson said.

“There will be loads of family fun including Park Beach Plazas Kids Fashions on the Field, jumping castle, games and prizes as well as free entry for under 16s.

“The club has added to the atmosphere by creating the Racing With Rhythms theme with two local bands playing live on stage.”
