Parkes trainer George Wright dominated proceedings at the Tomingley Picnics with three winners including Emerald Fortune in the Alkane Resources Tomingley Picnic Cup over 1500 metres.
Samara Johnson, who rode four winners at Tullibigeal and another two at Cootamundra, was aboard Emerald Fortune ($6) which raced outside the leader Over In Killarney.
Despite veering wide on the home turn, Emerald Fortune was too good for Sergeant Bilko (Annelise King) and Bemiles (Ricky Blewitt).
George Wright also won with Jonairley ($2.50 fav) and Pink Stiletto ($2 fav), both ridden by the in-form Ricky Blewitt from Narromine.
Given a cosy run behind the leaders by Samara Johnson, the Neil Smart Cowra trained From The Bible ($2.70) won the Class B Handicap (1150 metres).

Forbes trainers Barry Molloy and Bob Wenning had wins at Nyngan on Anzac Day with Royal Society and Bold Horatio respectively.
Trained by Barry Molloy for George Tanks from Parkes, the nine year old Royal Society has become a track specialist with three wins and a second from only four starts at Nyngan.
This year Mudgee apprentice Aaron Sweeney was aboard for the Khan’s Supa IGA Benchmark 55 Handicap (900 metres).
From well back, Royal Society ($7) finished fast on the outside to score by a neck from Blades Of Glory (Clayton Gallagher) with over two lengths to Path To Freedom (Roy L. McCabe).
Royal Society’s overall record is 10 wins and 17 placings from 68 starts.
Following a good last start third at Hillston, the Bob Wenning owned and trained Bold Horatio was well fancied for the AG’N’Vet-Nyngan Post Office Benchmark 45 Handicap (1200 metres).
Ridden by Parkes jockey Michael Hackett, Bold Horatio ($3.50 fav) tracked the leaders before powering away for a very easy win over Hot Mocha (Clayton Gallagher) and Front Pew (Crystal Conning).
