Rinash is rated an $8.00 chance with TAB fixed odds in Wednesday’s TAB Great Chase Grand Final at The Meadows, which looks good value based on his commanding heats and semi-final wins.
The son of Bekim Bale will have no shortage of supporters on the day, as clients and staff from his aligned group – Bayley House in Middle Park – will be on hand cheering him home from Box 1.
Bayley House is predominantly a day centre providing around 40 different activities per week for more than 200 adults with disabilities.
“We provide a whole range of different activities including dance, drama, basketball, cooking and personal development,” said Kerryn McIvor, External Relations Manager at Bayley House
“There’ll be a team of us at The Meadows on Wednesday and we are looking forward to a great day out.”
Rinash, pictured above with trainer Graham Laidlay of Devon Meadows, won a heat (Sandown) and semi-final (Warragul) of the TAB Great Chase in impressive fashion, which earned a combined total of $1,500 for Bayley House.
A top three finish in the Grand Final will see him earn the group a further $5,000 (1st), $2,000 (2nd) or $1,000 (3rd).
And while it’s not yet in concrete, Kerryn suspects the winnings will go towards an outdoor decking for the clients.
“We’re looking at doing some renovations, and a decking is something that is in the pipeline, which would be great for our clients to spend time in the sunshine.”
“We estimate the project would cost somewhere between $5,000 and $8,000, so another placing on Wednesday would go a long way towards achieving this goal,” Kerryn said.
All 150 Victorian organisations that care for the intellectually and physically disabled that were involved in the 2014 TAB Great Chase are invited to Wednesday’s Grand Final, which will incorporate a fun carnival atmosphere.
