The heat might be on at the moment but the recent rain has excited the Goondiwindi Race Club as they prepare for the Inglewood Cup on Saturday January 23.
The Inglewood Cup feature is now in its sixth year after the Inglewood Chamber of Commerce reinvigorated the concept and once again, a good crowd is predicted with a courtesy bus available from Inglewood for local supporters.
Racing will commence at 1.30 pm with the five event program expecting good nominations.
Race Club President Michael Watt explained it is great opportunity for people to come to town and be a part of one of Goondiwindi’s biggest sporting weekends.
“There will be plenty of tents and undercover facilities and extra watering points available for the horses which are paramount in summer racing,” explains Watt.
“The club has installed a new 3 inch main to the course so there should be no shortage of water”
“We have encountered plenty of hot Days in January in the past and we got through so we don’t envisage any problems this year either.”
He says its had a similar response to the very successful Christmas Party Race Day, and encourages groups to book a tent to enjoy the atmosphere of country racing.
