CD raids prove rewarding

Trips to the central districts proved rewarding for Cambridge trainers Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young in late September when winning at Otaki with Caorunn and at New Plymouth with Curragh. Graham Thomas also enjoyed success on his trip to New Plymouth with Mangaroa Flo Jo.
