Young Perth jockey Rosie Mahony rides a double in round two at Broome Turf Club
Perfect weather brought the crowds out again last Saturday, for a great day’s racing at the Broome Turf Club.
More than two and a half thousand fans came for the fun, excitement and fashion that the club had to offer, and they weren't disappointed.
While the first meeting of the season saw several outsiders get the money, last Saturday's meeting had most of the favoured horses in contention.
The Darren Pateman stable which had an uncustomary quiet day at the first meeting, opened it's account with a winning double, taking out the first and last races of the day with young Perth-based apprentice jockey Rosie Mahony celebrating her first winning race rides, riding a double.
The Wise One took out the opening race, leading all the way.
In the second, Dance Cockey led all the way, scoring by two lengths.
Slick Unit, made it look easy, in race three, with an all the way win, crossing the line by a margin of almost four lengths.
Race four gave punters the closest finish of the day, with Pit to Win hanging on by a nose from Hoolahoops.
The horses had finished in that order at the first meeting.
Race five went to the only outsider of the meeting, Unbreakable, which led all the way and returned investors $21.
Race six gave the Enright stable another win with their consistent galloper Desert Thorn.
The gelding had won at it's previous Broome start, and again came from midfield to score by a comfortable margin.
In the last race, the Pateman-Mahony combo made it two wins for the day, when King of Planets led all the way, winning by over two lengths.
There's another short break in the racing calendar before racing resumes in Broome on Saturday week June 26.
