Article excerpt

NEXT MEETING

Ipswich racing continues tomorrow followed by the December program, which includes three Friday race meetings -- 1st, 15th, and 22nd as well as two Wednesday dates -- 6th and 27th. The early December Friday meetings are heavily booked with Christmas functions as we enter the festive season.

AFTER the rain-enforced cancellation of half of the Doomben card on Saturday, Racing Queensland has rescheduled the listed Keith Noud Handicap to Ipswich tomorrow.

The increase in Wednes- day Metropolitan meetings at Ipswich in the absence of Eagle Farm will ensure the Gollan stable continues visiting for much of the current season chasing the elevated prize money.

Double success

TRAINER Tony Sears and jockey Ronnie Stewart each collected winning doubles at Ipswich last Wednesday with one of those wins in partnership.
