Barclay stars in racing's return

Winton trainer-driver Brent Barclay is the man to follow as harness racing resumes post lockdown at Invercargill, with three wins inside the first five races. 

He chalked up career win number 800 when he guided favourite Midnitetraintogeorga to win the first at Ascot Park today. 

It was win number one for the three-year-old filly at start number eight, after three placings in her last four starts.

Barclay then had two seconds (Bettors High - R2 and In The Groove R3) before winning races  4 and 5 with the appropriately named Hez Good, and then Get Lucky. 

Barclay's efforts have also kicked off HRNZ's Blue September campaign. He is one of ten ambassadors taking part in the annual Prostate Cancer Foundation fundraiser. 

Every win by an ambassador will result in HRNZ, individual clubs and other sponsors all contributing to the cause. So far Barclay's total stands at $900.  

There are 10 races today going through to 5.29pm with meetings scheduled for both Addington and Cambridge tomorrow, and then back at Addington for the Ashburton Trotting Club's meeting on Sunday.
