The action has started this afternoon as the Gore Harness Racing Club's Christmas meeting gets under way.

Prior to the event history was picking that Phil Williamson might stand a good chance of winning race one at Gore today.

The Oamaru trainer has won the opening event at the Gore Harness Racing Club's Christmas meeting on six occasions in the past 10 years. His six winners have been Beyond Me (last year), Maori Invasion (2010), Doctor Jock (2008), Nice One Kenny (2006), Ho Chi Minh (2005) and Allegro Agitato (2002).

However, it was not to be his day as Charlton horse Sun Shine Whiz took the honours instead.

Tomorrow: Greyhound racing at Ascot Park

Saturday: Harness racing at Winton

Yes, if she can keep up with the other players, why not?
