HEALTHY: Cool weather didn't deter 7150 patrons from attending the second day of the carnival.

Club officials are hoping for more than 15,000 people to be on course on Thursday.

NUMBERS: Darren Weir is breaking all records at Warrnambool this week.

His stable accepted with 46 runners for the carnival and after two days of racing which comprised of 20 races, his stable has had nine winners and lots of placegetters.

BACK: Dual Melbourne Cup-winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy was trackside with his wife Cathy at Warrnambool on Wednesday.

The couple live in Sydney but found time to head down to the ‘Bool as Cathy is in the ownership of Angelology.

Her brother Patrick Payne trains Angelology.

Angelology ran fourth in the Galleywood Hurdle.

Just for the record, McEvoy won the Wangoom Handicap on Point Danger in 2001 and 2002.

EQUAL: Rails bookmaker David McLaughlan declared punters and bookies are tied in the battle to win cash following two days of racing.

The flamboyant satchel swinger said “smart punters are winning and the same can be said for smart bookies”.

Bookies got back in when the outsider Danza Kuduro won the last.

OUT: The running rail will be out four metres from the 1300 to the 300-metre for the final day of the carnival.

Racecourse manager Daniel Lumsden said the surface was to be rolled after Wednesday’s races.

He expected that the rolling would even out the surface for Thursday.

RIGHT: Regina Coeli is ready to add another Grand Annual Steeplechase victory to her 2015 win in the famous race, according to her trainer, Caulfield Cup-winning Ciaron Maher.
