The highlight of the annual Butchers Picnic meeting on Australia Day in Bunbury was the $50,000 South West Summer Sizzle over 1200 metres.

The race attracted its usual good class field, and the stable was represented by LE SACRE, who was aiming at a quartet of consecutive wins.

Miss Dandy, the favourite, set off to make all, and still led entering the home straight. LE SACRE, meanwhile, had been settled mid field by Troy Turner.

Many horses had chances in the home straight, but Troy brought LE SACRE down the outside with a storming run, and they swept home to win by a length from Go Buster and Shawaim.

This was another amazing win for LE SACRE, who just keeps stepping up since his Narrogin win four starts ago.

Peter and the family were delighted to win one of Bunbury’s feature races with a horse they now lease.

After this triumph LE SACRE will no doubt race in the City.
