QERA had some pretty special results from its members at the Tom Quilty Gold Cup. There were 54 QERA members that made a start at this years Victorian TQ on a track made extra difficult by the preceding weeks of torrential rain. Qlder’s featured highly in the placings as well as in the buckle count. The QERA team of Shelley Chapman, Tanya Trevarthen, Danny Williams and Greg Lyon managed a second restricted teams placing. Congratulations team on a great result. Another team of Qlders from Kholonial Arabians picked up 1st place in the unrestricted teams. Kelsey Irvine’s mount Chelleason Rembrandt looked fantastic in the workouts and was a very clear and deserving winner of the Pat Slater Cup. The top 5 HWt’s were all Qlders, 2 of the top 5 LWTS’s, 2 of the top 5 MWT’s and 4 of the top 5 Juniors were also Qlder’s.
Well done to all of the QERA riders. You all did your state proud. Commiserations to those that didn’t get through.
