Making the most of opportunities from the Connie Greig stable at Dubbo, jockey Rasit Yetimova took out the $12,000 Westpac Cobar Cup as part of a winning double on Saturday.
Rising Naoko for Greig, the Turkish jockey took out the feature after settling midfield early on.
Queensland visitor She's Tidy set the pace in the 1700m cup, ahead of Royal Abbey and the $1.90 favourite Rusty Motorbike.
Coming with a well timed run, Naoko ($4.20) grabbed the lead close to home and won by a half-neck from She's Tidy (Jeff Kehoe, $6) with more than four lengths to Sorry I'm Awesome (Rhiannon Payne, $4.40) in third.
The win was a welcome one for Naoko after some mixed form on the TAB circuit recently. It was the seven-year-old mare's first win since saluting at Parkes in June of last year.
The victory also meant Yeitmova and Greig bookended the meeting after combining to win the day's first race with Purest.
Purest ($8) finished strongly from the back of the field to win the Sullivans Dr Allan Brady Memorial Class 2 Handicap (1370m) from Engaging (Rhiannon Payne, $4) and Late Return (Ken Dunbar, $2.40 favourite).
Orange trainer Michael Plummer and former Queensland jockey Rhiannon Payne may have missed out in the opener but together won the Broughton Field Services George Booth Memorial Maiden Plate (1000m).
Payne and Spicy Menu ($2.60 fav.) fought off a challenge from the Victorian trained Bella Shadow (Tiffany Jeffries, $5), with Steph's Wish (Ken Dunbar, $3.40) running third.
Melbourne based jockey Rhonda Mangan made the trip worthwhile by winning the KML Industries Buckman Family Memorial Benchmark 50 Handicap (1200m) for hometown trainer Wayne Prisk.
Jawsome ($3.80) took the early lead and held on to beat Minamahal (Jeff Kehoe, $5) and Divine Design (Rhiannon Payne, $6).
There was a big crowd at Cobar and plenty were cheering as Jawsome is owned by the 12-member Cobar Camels Racing syndicate.
Jarrod Marsden, president of the Cobar Miners' Race Club, is the manager of the Cobar Camels syndicate and he is also the owner of Three Rar, the winner of the Yanda Art- Lou Simon Memorial Benchmark 58 Handicap (1100m).
Three Rar ($9), ridden by Jeff Kehoe, is trained at Menindee by Jarrod Marsden's father Wayne Marsden and led all the the way to beat stablemate Vonnida (Rhonda Mangan, $2 fav.) and Felicette (Rasit Yetimova, $4.20).
Parkes jockey Tiffany Jeffries gave the Mick Loftus-trained Better Strike ($8) a good run behind the duelling leaders and then speared through a gap to beat She's Pretty Zippy (Rhonda Mangan, $3.50) and Jack Junior (Jeff Kehoe, $3 fav.) in the Landmark Russell Vinty Delaney Memorial Class 1 Handicap (1200m).
