Goulburn Announces 'Spacky' Memorial Race In November

Goulburn District Race Club has announced that former trainer, renowned horseman and well-respected Southern Tablelands racing identity, Graeme Spackman, will be honoured annually by the club.

The club has officially announced that the 'Graeme Spackman Memorial' will become an annual fixture on the club’s racing calendar.

The first running of the race and presentation of the associated perpetual trophy is set to coincide with Goulburn’s Anniversary Cup meeting to be held on 5 November 2017.

Goulburn Race Club's CEO, Robyn Fife, believes the recent decision by the club’s board to remember the man everyone called “Spacky” in this fashion is a suitable tribute.

“Graeme Spackman spent many years building a reputation in the racing industry as a successful trainer and a hard-working industry participant,” Ms Fife said.

“He was a man that many people could relate to. Not only did he train horses out of Goulburn Race Club but he also helped mentor up and coming riders and trainers in his time around the club.

“Since his sudden passing he has been sorely missed by those who saw him on a daily basis and those that saw Graeme every now and then at race meetings.

“We are honoured and extremely appreciative that Graeme’s wife Judy and his family have given their support to the club’s desire to maintain an ongoing presence and legacy for Spacky.”
