Melbourne turned it on this year with a clear, sunny day that kicked off with the Touchstone Farm Jockeys winning the coin toss and electing to bat. The Jockeys set the bar high with a whopping 150 runs. The highlight - star batsmen Josh Ledger & Mitch Goring scoring 15 runs in 2 overs for the Jockeys. Needless to say, the PFD Foods Racing All Stars put up a fight with AFL stars Cameron Ling, Daniel Harford and Peter Bedford all scoring double figures. The Jockeys were shaking in their size 14 boys pants, however after an epic battle, the All Stars were only able to make 133 runs with the Jockeys taking out victory in the 2017 TAB NJT20 Cricket Match. Final scores Jockeys 8/150 (3 retired, 2 not out) & Racing All Stars 8/133 (4 retired, 2 not out). Brad Rawiller was awarded the Subzero Man of the Match. Inaugural inductee into the NJT20 Cricket Hall of Fame was Jason Benbow, founder of the Cricket Match.
Special mention to our Everyday Heroes, Racing All Star Mike Symons raised $4,367.95 and Jockey Luke Currie raised $1,837.50. Their efforts are an example of the incredible support received from all corners of the racing community.
