Cowra Gift field bristles with talented sprinters

Cowra Community News
Wed 5th December 2012

WITH several recent big gift race-winners nominating, this year’s Cowra Gift promises to deliver some exciting racing at Twigg Oval on Saturday afternoon. Nominations have been building gradually and, with just under 50 visiting athletes and around 150 entries, there will be very keen competition for the $5000 prize-money, organisers say.

The back-marker running off 5.50m in this year’s $2000 Gift over the classic 120m will be the outstanding Collaroy beach-sprinter Dean Scarff, who only two weeks ago won one of the country’s richest gift events, the $16,000 Queanbeyan Leagues Club Gift, from a very strong field.

This was on top of his excellent results in the World Surf Life-Saving Championships held recently in South Australia, where his Collaroy Beach relay team won and Scarff came third in the individual sprint.

Trained by well-known Brian Wright, who will also compete on Saturday, Scarff looks very promising and could have a fine future in athletics.

He will of course be joined in Saturday’s event by his Collaroy Beach sprinting team-mate and last year’s winner of the Cowra Gift, Elliot Marynissen, who is returning to the professional sprinting circuit following a long rehabilitation period from a debilitating hamstring injury.

Marynissen is off the 6.25m mark and, if in shape, will again test the field here.

Other gift race winners running are Shaun Edwards of Coogee, who won the 25th Temora Golden Gift worth $12,000 last February, and a 15-year-old flyer from the Illawarra, Christian Foster, who won the $5000 Macksville Gift only four weeks ago.

The event therefore will comprise among its 25 entrants who are in form, so the racing promises to be top-notch.

The Combined Cowra Businesses $1000 Women’s Gift over 120m has attracted a fairly small field of 12 young women who will compete for a slice of the prize-money.

Last year’s winner from the Yass Valley, Amy McIlrick, has nominated and has been given the back-mark of 4m, but she may struggle to make it to the start because she’s carrying an injury.

Should she be unable to start the race opens up quite a lot and it is difficult to pick the winner.

Roger Fabri-trained runners who have won much prize money over recent years, Coogee’s Suz Sinclair off 8.25m and Paddington’s Samantha Burston off 7.75m, could again feature although the tall Canberra sprinter and winner of last year’s Cowra 300m, Rachel Carnegie, off 6m, has been moving well and is overdue for a gift win.

Oran Park’s Kristina Buchanan, off 9.5m, and former Gilgandra Gift winner, the veteran from Mt Pritchard Litia Curuenavuli off the front mark of 18m, may also prove difficult to run down also.

All in all it will be an intriguing event.

Saturday’s program will begin with the official opening at 12:20pm, followed by all the heats, the semi-finals from 2pm to about 3pm and the finals with presentations will all take place from 3:30pm to 4:50pm.

Another feature of the afternoon will occur when gift organiser Geoff White and Mayor of Cowra, Bill West, will accept awards won for last year’s entertaining carnival from New South Wales Athletic League president and Australian Athletic Confederation vice-president, Billy Edwards.

Following the sudden and unexpected withdrawal of the main sponsor, Mr White has worked extremely hard to secure sufficient sponsorship, with many Cowra businesses chipping in to ensure this year’s continuation of the event.

In fact the $1000 Women’s Gift is sponsored by the Combined Cowra Businesses, with main sponsors Cowra Bowling Club, Cowra Services Club, Beechers Wool and Central West Lucerne Products Pty Ltd.

Of course without the considerable support of the Cowra Shire Council there would be no event – the shire’s help has been immeasurable and greatly appreciated, says Mr White.
