Gadfly established a weight carrying record for the race when beating a strong field in the Duck Creek Picnic Cup at Nyngan on Saturday.
Allocated a staggering 74kgs by the handicapper, the Mark Ward-trained Gadfly humped 71kgs following a 3kgs allowance for apprentice Angela Taylor.
Austin and Zaphod were the leaders in the 1250 metres Cup with Gadfly settling fourth in the eight horse field.
Despite the hefty weight, Gadfly ($6.50) took control to win by almost two lengths from Blue Channel (Caitlin King, $3.50) and Austin (Maddison Wright, $4.60) with two-time defending winner Rehanaat ($3.20 favourite) finishing fourth.
Taylor, who rode her first winner in May, scored a double at Duck Creek when also winning with the Wayne Marsden-trained Late Return ($4).
Late Return raced outside the leader before beating Pullman Brown (Maddison Wright, $3.60 equal favourite) and Madison Gardens (Steven Kehoe, $3.60 equal fav.) in the Class 2 Handicap (900m).
Ashley Boyd also had a winning double with Lenroy ($3.20) and Maria Elisa ($4).
Trained at Bourke by James Hatch, Lenroy rounded up the field to impressively win the Maiden Plate (900m) while from fifth on the turn the Sharon Jeffries-trained Maria Elisa made a strong, wide run to account for Vonnida (Tim Grace, $4) and Three Rar (Angela Taylor, $5) in the Open Handicap (900m).
Wendy Baker's Getting Ready and the Rodney Robb-trained Tapanui also won on Saturday.
