Anton O'Connell on his way to winning the Ray O'Connor Memorial over Cam Karwowski and Sequoia Cooper - Photo courtesy of The Southland TimesCameron Karwowski continued his fine recent form with victory in the Browns Handicap on Saturday.

The annual road race held in conjunction with the Browns Sports Day was raced in blustery conditions with Karwowski riding through the field along with fellow scratch riders Dillon Bennett and Luke MacPherson to claim victory from Bennet with Tom Sexton showing a good turn of speed in the final sprint to get up for third ahead of Hayden Strong.

Scratch looked strong, leaving bunch after bunch in its wake with only Anton O'Connell (5 minutes) able to hook on to the big engines as they whipped passed.
