There was a finals-like atmosphere at Kings Park on Saturday when Seymour took on Euroa. It was the Vietnam Veterans’ Day clash with all the makings of a classic, and it was the Lions who were victorious, marching out 57-point winners. In what was a welcome sight for fans, Seymour gun Jason Cole returned from a serious hamstring injury to put in a solid performance for the Lions.
Bring it on

It was party time at Lakerland on Saturday, with Nagambie’s senior football and A-grade netball teams saluting in their respective grand finals. The footballers rampaged their way to a 53-point win against Violet Town to claim back-to-back premierships, while the A-grade side toughed it out in a thrilling match that went in to extra time to pinch victory from Tallygaroopna.
Seymour Cup and
It was Seymour’s biggest weekend of the year, and there was no doubt of the success of this year’s Tastes of the Goulburn festival and Godolphin Seymour Cup. Crowd numbers were up at the Station St hub of Tastes on Saturday, while an estimated crowd of around 3000 were on hand to see Balf’s Choice salute in the $150000 Godolphin Seymour Cup on Sunday. Seymour was also on the racing map on Saturday, with local jockey Cory Parish aboard the winner of the coveted Caulfield Cup.
Double trouble at the track
Seymour had a big week on the track. Riding on her home track local apprentice Tahlia Hope picked up a double before heading to town where she landed the $55000 Ladbrokes 55-Second Challenge over 955m on the well supported Invincible Al.

Just gallop me to the church on time
Lauren Ryder (on Dennys Acres) didn’t have to panic about being late to church — her wedding was in the Tallarook backyard of her in-laws. But her father Steve still got to walk his daughter — and the horse — across the lawn for her marriage to fellow camp draft enthusiast Zac Jackson.
