Happy Father’s Day winning feeling

September 10, 2020 BY

LOCAL Geelong, Bellarine and Melbourne Cup winning trainer Danny O’Brien started the IGA Liquor Father’s Day Races at the Geelong Racing Club on Sunday with a special gift in the first.

Well-known and part time Surf Coast resident Damien Oliver, pictured right, rode $11:1 Young Werther first past the post, and went on to ride a treble for the day, one of those a double with O’Brien.

The Geelong Racing Club, along with the entire Racing Industry, have continued to operate successfully throughout COVID-19 with very stringent rules in place for each meet, which includes no patrons or owners.

O’Brien, from Barwon Heads, won his first Melbourne Cup with Vow and Declare in 2019.
