1 Burramine Wrap on Wed Mar 20, 2013 12:53 pm


Burramine Gift 16th March 2013
The track for the 62nd Burramine Gift was once again in perfect condition and although the weather looked a little doubtful for a short period the majority of the day was held in brilliant sunshine. The club, always a leader in under age events, organised a full card of events for school age competitors. We look forward to seeing these “young guns” in the seniors in the next few years. The VAL presentations, professionally handled by Cartha McKerrow, were conducted at Club Mulwala where the club generously catered with finger food and refreshments for the runners, supporters and officials. The Burramine committee continue to provide an excellent carnival and friendly atmosphere that is amongst the best in Victorian country sport.

Kelly Brothers 70 metres Open.
The sprint consisted of eleven quality heats where many of the heat winners were able to progress to the gift final later in the day. The fastest heats were taken out by Adam Coote (5.75m & 7.61), Dean Scarff ( 4m & 7.60) and Jarrod Lindner (6.75m & 7.65). The semi finals were extremely close affairs with Coote winning the first in 7.65 from Lee Forrest (4m & 7.69) and the second going to Leigh Phelan (7.25m) in 7.64 from Matthew Wiltshire (3.5m), recording the same time. The final was close but Adam Coote had a margin to spare from Forrest and Wiltshire storming home for third place. Adam, hampered early in the season with hamstring trouble, appears back to his best form and should have a couple of good weeks ahead of him. The winner, coached by Mark Hipworth, ran 7.69.

McLardy & McShane Women’s and Veterans’ 300 metres
Kendra Hubbard (30m) recorded a heat time of 36.89, the only runner to break 37 seconds, and went into the final as clear favourite. In the final Kendra ran a great tactical race to defeat the inform runners Evan King (18m) and Pamela Austin( 41m) by three metres in the time of 36.73. In her current form Kendra is looking a solid chance at Easter if she decides to concentrate on circle events rather than her more familiar sprint events. Evan King, fresh from his Bendigo win, ran another good race, running down Austin in the last few metres for second prize.

Chapman Grains Burramine Women’s Gift
The women’s 120 metres final was taken out by Pamela Austin (8.25m) from Sarah Blizzard (9.25m) and Morgan Deane (11m) in 11.89. Pamela , close to a win over the last few weeks, ran the quickest heat with a 11.96 and left nothing to chance in the final with a comprehensive two metre victory. Sarah Blizzard , also second in the heat to Austin, ran a good race to hold off a group ,in a close finish for second. Pamela is coached by Peter Walsh.

John Glesson Memorial 800 metres Open
Tom Kelly (72m) made the 800 metres final a procession as he careered away from the field over the last half lap to record a convincing win in 1.55.8. Tom, already a winner of the Wangaratta 800 metres this season, won the quicker of the two heats and looked the one to beat throughout the race. Darren Naismith (66m) showed his best form of the season to finish second. Conor Nunn (70m) stepping up in distance, from the 400’s, ran a creditable third hold off the back marker Michael Marantelli (34m). Tom, a former crack spin bowler for the all conquering St Bernard’s cricket team, is coached by Brad Carter.

Tom Hopkins Memorial 120 metres Backmarkers
Carl Morehouse (5.25m)held on for a narrow win in the backmarkers gift to record 12.54 over Dean Scarff (4.5m) and Matthew Wiltshire (3.5m). Morehouse has a first class record in this event having won last season and placed second the year before. The race named in honour of Tom Hopkins, one of the best secretarys and administrators in the history of the VAL, provides excellent prizemoney for the quality sprinters not making the Burramine gift final.

Strathmerton Drilling Muckatah Novice 100 metres
Sam Vickery (13.25m) from the Benny Tancredi stable was able to secure his first win in the VAL with a clear win in the novice in the time of 10.61. Sam defeated Kirsty Stevens (20m) and Darcy Hughes (10m) to claim the $330 first prize, trophy and sash.

Peter Lawless Snr Veterans’ 100 metres[/b
Benny Tancredi (28.75m) scored his first Burramine win, in a very long career, on Saturday when he took out the veterans 100 metres . Benny defeated Kelly Sheldrick (6.75m) and Glen Ross (3.25m) in 11.15. Tancredi, coaching his own stable of athletes, still finds time to compete himself and has had the occasional win over the last few seasons.

[b]Broo Women’s 400 metres Series Final

The final of the Broo series was held on Saturday and a field of the best female 400 metres runners available faced the starter for the $1000 prize pool. Anna Pasquali (28m) was always well positioned during the event and entered the home straight in third place, having allowed Olivia Goder (17m) to pass her before the home turn. In the straight Pasquali eased off the heels of Goder and Stephanie Lockhart (28m)to wear them down over the final few metres to record her best win in recent times. Anna coached by her husband Wally ran the distance in 55.97. Katherine Clarke running off the scratch mark ran a very creditable fifth in 57.56.

Yarrawonga Holiday Park Burramine Gift 120m
Jarrod Lindner (10.75m) achieved his biggest victory in professional foot running when he scorched down the Burramine track to record a very quick 12.21. He defeated Adam Coote (9.25m) by a metre with a further metre and half to Kevin Brittain(6m). Lindner recorded the fastest heat time with a 12.44 run and improved on that to win his semi final in 12.40, against Dylan Panizza’s semi final win in 12.44. This season is Lindner’s sixth season with the Val and he previously had won a novice at Wangaratta and an open 400 metres at Northcote, late last year. Adam Coote continued with his good recent form and Kevin Brittain is also coming into gift calculations at the right time of the year. Jarrod is coached at Albury by Adrian Fury.

Leo Burke Memorial 1600 metres
Neil Brennan (125m), James Deane (120m) and Adrian Phelan (115m) came from a long way off the lead, swamped the leaders as a group down the back straight the last time, and strode clear in the home straight to fight out a tough finish in the 1600 metres. In the end Brennan just held out Deane with Phelan tiring to finish third just ahead of David Haigh (150m). The first two placing were coached by Mark Hipworth. The winning time was 4.14.4. Neil has had a very successful season having won the rich 400 metres at the Avondale Gift meeting. Brennan after his win lined up in the heats of the 400 metres and finished a good third in the final.

The VAL distance points award is drawing to a close and Mark Hipworth and Alex Bacalja are joint leaders with 48 points, narrowly to the good of Stefan Catalano on 46 points. Stefan’s effort has been first class as he neither is able to run in novice races or veteran’s events. Catalano splits another Hipworth pair in David Spence and Andrew Soltys, on 45 points. The winner maybe decided by the placing in the Stawell two mile on Easter Monday.

Judd and Sons Tungamah 400 metres
As the field bunched on the home turn of the 400 metres final, anyone of the ten finalists could still win the race. But it was Justin Cohen (43m) who received a dream split in the home straight to dash through and score a solid win in 48.98. Justin defeated Peter Spence (24m) and Neil Brennan (28m) by a metre with the rest of the field in a bunch.

Will winners of those races be penalised at Stawell?

Geez from what I've been told Johnny Adams will be hard to beat after trouncing Lindner off their Gift marks the other night. Fairly reliable source.

4 Re: Burramine Wrap on Fri Mar 22, 2013 8:46 am


Is this John Adams we are talking about that ran 12.4 off 4m a couple years ago at stawell? He has 9.25m this year so he runs 11.9ish based on that, is that quick enough this year?

Some guys last year ran very quick in the semis, and they have an extra metre this year???

Even a finalist from last year has a whole extra metre so how fast will he run?

5 Re: Burramine Wrap on Fri Mar 22, 2013 8:58 am


Several former stawell finalists are better off than runners who havent made a final. One ruinner up is handicapped to run 11.8. former winner has a bigger mark than he won off when a teenager. looks harder to make a firststawell final than it is to make a 2nd or 3rd.
my tip: final will be made up of at least three former finalists.
