Race day WRAP UP:

Apprentice Tyler Schiller played a starring role and helped leading trainer Gwenda Markwell fire a late one-two punch on her home track at Kembla Grange on Saturday.
Schiller had a winning treble on a memorable afternoon with two of those coming for Markwell in the final two events on the card to ensure the leading trainer's hot run of form at the Illawarra Turf Club continued.
Schiller, who is indentured to Sydney trainer Mark Newnham, has been steadily finding his feet since making the move up from the Riverina at the beginning of the season.
He struck first with the help of his boss when booting home the Newnham-trained Rosa Moyessi in the Frank "Apples" Potter Memorial Maiden Plate (1200m).
But it was his double late in the day that had the locals cheering loudest.
Schiller thread through the eye of a needle on the Markwell-trained Tic Tock Man to capture the Jamie Innes Maiden Handicap (1400m).
He had Tic Tock Man ($2.30 fav) on the fence, midfield in the run but forced his way into the gap to outpoint Kerry Parker's Misty Brook ($18) in a tight run to the post.
A brave effort from Tongariro helped the young gun complete his provincial treble and provided Markwell with her first Kembla victory for the month of November.
The 2kg claiming youngster was caught three deep on Markwell's son of Animal Kingdom but Tongariro ($9) proved too tough for his more fancied opposition when holding off the Stephen O'Halloran-trained Deadly Impact ($3).
Veteran hoop Jeff Penza started the day as the man to beat in the jockeys' challenge and got his day off to the perfect beginning when combining with John O'Shea's pair of Brooks Battle (race one) and Mr Gee (race two).
He went within a whisker of completing his own treble in the third and fourth but had to be content with a winning double.
