GRAPES & GALLOPS By Geoff Whittle

On Sunday, 22nd January 2017, another year gone, and the very popular Mount Barker Grapes & Gallops included the $100,000 Mungrup Stud Sprint is being held at Frost Park, McDonald in Mount Barker.

Neatly coinciding with the golf feature in Albany, Wittenoom Cup Week and the Viterra Wools (formerly the Raffles event) Bowls Carnival in Mount Barker. The Grapes & Gallops is the highlight of the racing season in the Great Southern where patrons are able to witness top class country racing with a nine event race card and sample the wines of Mount Barker’s wineries.  Gourmet foods are also available and children’s entertainment provided.  A very relaxed day.

The Mungrup Stud Sprint over 1300 metres attracts a strong field of sprinters from the metropolitan area and the south west, and in most years the winner has gone on to win more high class races in the Perth or the big provincial feature sprints.

Gray and Jan Williamson, and family, of Mungrup Stud  have continued to sweep all before them with the young horses produced on their Narrikup property. Their young stallion Oratorio has been producing a string of winners of Perth feature races including the last two years’ Karrakatta Plate (2yo) winners Gold Rocks and Motion Pictures.  Other top class  black type performers are Waratah’s Secret, and tough mare Clueless Angel.  Oratorio stood the 2010 season for a service fee of  $33,000 by far the highest in the State, and had a full book of mares.

Enquiries or bookings can be directed to Mount Barker Turf Club Secretary, on 0447 512 873.
