Turnbull, O’Shea combine for Mother’s Day Cup win | Photos

Parramatta has added more silverware to his collection with victory in the Mother’s Day Cowra Cup (2,110 metres) at the Cowra Paceway on Sunday afternoon.

The Amanda Turnbull-trained gelding, driven by John O’Shea, negotiated a tricky barrier eight to get clear by the final turn.

The $6.80 chance clocked a blistering 59.2 seconds second half for a 1:57.3 winning mile rate.

It was a 29.2 seconds fourth quarter which drew Parramatta clear at the top of the final bend, but he was given a late challenge from Condagen, who had made a move from the outside.

The result bolsters Parramatta’s collection of trophies in 2017, having won the Orange Banjo Patterson Cup and Cootamundra Wattle Time Cup as well.

The earlier Menangle Country Series Heats were won by Peggyville and A Life Under Fire for trainers Nathan Hurst and Lester Hewitt respectively.

Georges Plaines trainer Bernie Hewitt won the Charlie Muddle Memorial (Gunna Cullect) and Sam Agostino Memorial (Taylors Reason).
