Rounding off the handicapped races for this year, the Dean Cooksley Memorial handicap is coming up fast on Saturday 12 November.

The race is a 60km belter along the south coast from Green Island to Taieri Mouth, with hills and stiff cross winds to sort the chaff from the wheat. The race favours strength and speed, finishing with a grunty climb up Jeffcoates Rd. You can read more about Dean here:
