Registered paid up owners and trainers each receive a bonus whenever a horse wins at allocated meetings plus you receive all the benefits the club has to offer.

VHRC member Len Baker looks at the meeting.


Local Pearcedale owner/breeders Lorraine and Hugh Cathels have a lovely 3Y0 gelding by the name of Commander Buzz who was victorious in the Become A Member Today Pace over 2080 metres. Trained by Hugh a veterinary surgeon, Commander Buzz driven by regular reinsman Glenn Hunter enjoyed a sweet passage from inside the second line on the back of the poleline pacemaker Ghost Of Time. Angling to be outside the leader on turning, Commander Buzz raced clear to score by a half neck only from Machane Said (three pegs) which flashed late, while Ghost Of Time held down third 1-6 metres away. The mile rate 1-58.5.

Hugh also received the trainers bonus making it a profitable race.
