Big collect for Smithy

Morning host Ian Smith has been the big winner in this week's SENZ radio "Pacing for Purpose" competition.

Yesterday the high profile commentator and former cricket international outlaid $50 on The High Commander at Winton. The Bettor's Delight three-year-old duly delivered for driver Brent Barclay and trainer Brett Gray. It was his first win in four starts.

The $325 collect took Smithy's tally in the competition to $760, second only behind the Drive hosts (Kirstie Stanway, Stephen Donald and Rikki Swannell) with $980.

Every week four hosts on the sports radio network bet $50 each on the harness racing meeting of their choice, with all proceeds going to charity.

The competition runs through to January.

So far they have raised $2524.
