WANGARATTA SPORTS: GIFT TO C. W. PETTIONA

Launceston Examiner
Monday 2nd February 1931


WANGARATTA (VIC), Sunday: In delightful weather,the Wangaratta Gift was held yesterday afternoon and evening. The attendance was large and the gate was £500, about £50 less than last year.

Several dead-heats and close finishes were witnessed.

The £150 gift was won by C. V. W. Pettiona of South Melbourne, off 6 1/2 yards. M. J. Dunn S.A. was second, and T. Bowen (Shlepparton), third.

Dunn gave great promise, as he ran well inside evens on two or three occasions during the day.

Tim Banner, former world's champion, made an attempt to break the Australian 130 yards record held by himself and Austin Robertson. Banner just failed, the official time being 12 7-16sec, a "tick" slower than the record.

In the last lap of the seventh heat of the Austral, M. I. Metcalf fell and broke his, collarbone. In the five miles events in the afternoon four riders fell heavily. R. Lindus was thrown into a fence, and was taken to hospital in a dazed condition. Six stitches had to be inserted in a severe wound in his head, but he was a spectator of the events in the evening.

Details:
Wangaratta Gift Final

1. C. W. Pettiona (Port Melbourne), 6 1/2yds.
2. M. O. Dunn (S.A.), 2yds.
3. T. Bowen. (Shepparton), 11 1/2yds.
4. L. H. Cannon (Moonee Ponds), 7 1/2yds.

Pettiona and Dunn, running strongly, overhauled Cannon, and about 20 yards from the finish Pettiona shot out with a brilliant finish, and won by inches.

Bettlng: 2-1 on Bowen; 7-4 PETTIONA; 10-1 Maroney, 20-1 Cannon and Dunn, 100-1 Strain.
