The Valley Preview – Ep 10 Junior Jocks Christmas Party Day
Welcome to the Valley Preview for the latest news on Saturday’s racing.
A Good Judge
A Clayton boy born and bred, Bill Quin’s first love was racing. He retired last Tuesday as the first ever full-time judge for Racing Victoria. Bill worked in the industry for over 40 years, working as a judge or race caller at every track state wide with the exception of one. Although he intends to ‘hang up’ the magnifying glass full time, he won’t be lost to the industry.
On Like Fontiton
The Robert Smerdon trained Fontiton smashed her rivals in the opener on Sportingbet Cox Plate Day, winning the $250,000 Inglis Banner for 2yo’s by six lengths. It was visually stunning, something rarely seen in 1000m races. The win has ‘ratings experts’ salivating at what her future may hold.
