THE 97th running of the Wangaratta Gift may have one of the strongest fields in its history.
Stawell Gift winner Isaac Dunmall (2016) and Wangaratta Gift winners Paul Tancredi (2015 and 2016) and Harrison Kerr (2017) will all race on Saturday night, a prospect that excites keen Wangaratta Sports Carnival organiser and sponsor Wally Pasquali.
“Isaac will be our fastest athlete competing here this weekend,” Pasquali said.
“Paul is a dual winner of the Gift and Harrison Kerr is coming back to defend his crown.
“In saying all that I think this year’s Wangaratta Gift favourite is a sprinter by the name of James Vine; he has been running really well.
“James is a big guy and should go in as a genuine chance.”
