The Port Hedland Turf Club’s Family Day Races were dominated by Pinjarra trainer Tom Pike and Roebourne trainer Michael Ball.

Both recorded two wins, Pike claiming races two and four with Someday One Day and Princess Shari while Ball won races five and six with The Daintree and Balrov.

Each of the six races was contested for first-place prize money of $6400.

The first race the Goodline Handicap, was won by Miss Harley Quinn ridden by Jessica Gray.

The six-year-old mare was wearing blinkers for the first time and was the favourite, crossing the line two lengths ahead of Pike’s Salvaged.

South Hedland-trained Hashtage Lad won the BJ Young Earthmoving Handicap.

The seven-year-old gelding trained by Dean Cocivera came home strong after good performances at Meekatharra and a hard loss as Belmont.

Pike’s Princess Shari gave the punters a surprise victory in the Hedland Harbour Cafe Maiden.

Jockeys Simone Altier and Beaux Banovic-Edwards were the pick of the hoops.

Both jockeys rode well and each of them saluted the judges twice.
