Wednesday's Gawler leg of the National Apprentice Series looms as a huge day in the scheme of the Series after Heat 3 was washed out in Queensland last month.
The Gawler meeting will now host Heat 3 and 4 of the Series after Heat 3 at Doomben was washed out on 21 March.
The home ground advantage could be a huge plus to the South Australians who sit in third place, six points behind Victoria on ten points and Queensland on eight.
The visiting states will be represented by Harry Grace (Victoria), Hannah English (Queensland), Teagan Voorham (Tasmania) Lorelle Crow (Northern Territory) and Tayla Stone (Western Australia).
Heat 3 of the Series will take place in Race 4 and in this race both Anna Jordsjo and Cody Collins will represent South Australia against the five visiting jockeys while in Race 7 will feature Heat 4 where Emily Finnegan, Kayla Crowther, Alfred Chan and Eran Boyd will represent our state.
Hannah English, Eran Boyd and Alfred Chan are coming into the Series in good form with all three riding doubles on Saturday while Emily Finnegan, Kayla Crowther and Tegan Voorham all rode winners over the Easter long weekend.
