Mornington's Matt Carter won an early heat, but failed to
make the final

Raging favourite takes out the Rye Gift

CRAIG Rollinson ran like the wind to win the 37th Rye Gift final on Saturday.

Wearing the yellow jacket off 8.25m, 30-year-old Rollinson clocked 12.488 to win the 120m final. Second was Bros Kelly off 6.25m and third Daniel Sammut off 9.25m.

Rollinson, an electrician from Warragul, trains with Wally Meechan at Dandenong.

It was a landmark win for both.

“This is his first Gift win, and mine also,” Meechan said.

“We gave him a trial during the week and he went pretty well in it. I thought he’d be a chance and so did he.”

Rollinson was backed into a raging 1/2 odds on favourite in the final, but Meechan said it wasn’t his money.

“Someone got on before me, so I didn’t touch it,” Meechan quipped.

More than 3500 people filed into Rowley Reserve to witness the afternoon’s races.

The Women’s Diamond was won by Alice Platten off 8.25m. Second was Laura-Jane Hilditch and third was Sam Sammut.
