KILMORE Racing Club hosted its first turf meeting for the new season at bet365 Park in fine weather conditions on a Soft 7 track last Saturday .
The nine-race card was a successful fundraiser for GenesisCare Victoria and theNorthern Health Foundation, with corporate companies entertained at Trackside.
Only two favourites greeted the judge on the program, with local trainer Barbara Hennel knocking all quaddie punters for a six, saddling-up Zutero at $101 for a clear win.
The nine-year-old German-bred gelded son of Joylsome and Zubia, ridden by Jade Darose, ran down the Jody Thompson-trainedSaracentinal ($7.50) to win by a half-length with another outsider, Apocalypto($26), a head away third.
Zutero, part-owned by the trainer, was having his first start since an unplaced run at Echuca in June.
It was the gelding’s second win with four minor placings from 25 starts.
Riding honours went to Linda Meech and Declan Bates who finished up with winning doubles.
