Trainer Mick Kent and jockey Brad Rawiller combined to win consecutive Ballarat Cups with backmarker Domesky today.

The two men, who won the 2010 edition with My Bentley, planned and executed a win based on reverse psychology.

It was commonly thought Ballarat was favouring leaders during the day and if true Domesky had little hope.

The four-year-old only has one racing pattern, to relax and finish with a burst.

Kent hoped others would head to the front and therefore set a quick speed giving the swoopers the last shot and so it was.

Stole, Niptious, Apprehend and Paddy O’Reilly all used early speed to get into good forward position.

The Mike Moroney trained Tinseltown was withdrawn from the race after 300m when rider Michael Walker falsely believed the horse had broken down.

He interfered with Illustrious Blue and Boom N Zoom causing them to lose momentum and at least two lengths.

Paddy O’Reilly, the heavily backed favourite, was caught wide for the first 800m as Craig Robertson on Niptious set a good speed.

Top weight Rothera was given the run of the race by Luke Nolen, fifth on the fence.

Domesky settled on the fence in the final six back with Ulundi and Sean Baile Mor.

The first move was made by Chris Symons aboard Ulundi, moving three wide to get on the back of bolter Noble Destiny at the 800m.

Symons had to go wider when that horse had enough before the turn.

At the 500m Apprehend, Paddy O’Reilly and Niptious shared the lead but all were under pressure, such was the pace of the race.

Nolen moved Rothera off the fence to challenge with Ulundi but the latter’s long run started to tell at the 300m.

Rothera got away but the riders with patience, Rawiller on Domesky and Jake Noonan on Sean Baile Mor were obvious threats.

Domesky had entered the straight behind Sean Baile Mor but was too good for Rothera and Sean Baile Mor.

Under 59kg Rothera was gallant.

No horse in the race’s history had carried that impost to victory and so it remains.

While Domesky’s wins have been spaced, he has always had a touch of class having won the Group 2 Alister Clark at Moonee Valley in March.

“He didn’t have much early in his prep and he may have been out of his depth in the Caulfield Cup,” Kent said.

“We like to space his runs a bit more than we did, we ran him three times pretty quickly.

“We then gave him more time and he ran better at Flemington and obviously ran even better today.

“He is a backmarker who needs heat up front and often these type of horses don’t win a lot of races.

“Moonee Valley has always suited him because they get going early.

“I said to Brad, let’s hope everyone sees the track is playing up front and there might be a bit of pressure – and there was.

“He will be a better horse next year, he will have a break now and come back for better races like the Warrnambool Cup.

“He likes a touch of give in the ground and heat up front and there you go.”

Rawiller was appreciative of the win.

“Mick has been a great supporter of mine and there is nothing like to win a good country cup like the Ballarat Cup,” he said.

    Of course they’re teaching kids about their own religions, the Muslim side is not the only one.. I was shocked when I saw Vjeronauka (Religion) as part of the curriculum down in Eastern Herzegovina (Republika Srpska).. In fact I would be the first one to outlaw such a practice.. Religion is meant to be taught in one place, and one place only: on the parents’ own time and at their own expense..Bosnia is a mess of a country.. It’ll never reach a state of normality..

    mas para haver “lindas carteiras de pele” têm que se matar animais e o plástico, um dos três constituintes do tetrapack independentemente da nossa vontade já existe. Ou seja a vantagem de re-utilizar materiais não biodegradavéis é essa mesma: dar uso a um material que infelizmente já existe mas que só serviu uma vez. Então: Porque não optar pela re-utilização do plástico em vez de fomentar o negócio das peles dos animais?

I know its satellite. But i erroneously thought the results were based off Google maps.What do you know about local search as it relates to GPS searches?I’m beginning to think this is a highly overlooked method of finding local business, while on the road.

    we’ve always had a parking problem and we’re going to build a deck. I don’t believe we build a parking structure into more prosperity. A park would attract more people than a parking deck. People moaned about not having bump outs on Center when eating in a park would be even more pleasant than any extra wide sidewalk.

    I enjoyed the book a lot too. I rooted for the good guys and hissed the bad guys, basically. (Although the characterization isn't necessarily always as shallow as that makes it sound.)Writing from the POV of someone very different from you is always a challenge, I suppose, and when a member of an oppressor class is writing about members of an oppressed class, it's especially dicey. But The Help does a reasonably good job of it. (Although I guess the real question is whether it should have been done at all.)Anyway, Coming of Age in Mississippi does sound really interesting. I hope my library has a copy.
