The Club will also provide live music, food vendors, kids’ rides, a jumping castle and other entertainment.

Gates open at midday with the two feature races, the Michael Shanahan Memorial (1150m) and the Jericho Cup over the gruelling 2700m.

And the Club has a ‘buy-one-get-one-free’ if you purchase tickets before Wednesday or $10 on the day at ANZAC Day races

Deniliquin Racing Club will wait until after the final race to commence two-up with all proceeds going to Legacy.

“We have marquee packages, a Fashions on the Field, TAB and bar facilities, free children’s entertainment and live music after the final race,” said DRC’s secretary, Joan Douglas.

“Main sponsor is the White Lion Hotel, Deniliquin, with Ted Ryan the on-course MC.

“We also have free town bus pick-ups and drop-offs from various clubs, pubs and motels.”

Nyngan Jockey Club kicks off 2019 with their ANZAC Day races.

“This year we have introduced ‘Ladies Own the Dream’ whereby all ladies that attend the races will have the opportunity to own their own horse for the day,” said Wendy Robb, NJC’s secretary/treasurer.

“If their horse wins the lady that owns that horse for the day will be able to be part of the presentation, have their photos taken with the horse and receive a lovely prize.”

The day begins with a free Khan’s IGA Luncheon for all from 12:30pm under the big Toyota tent.

“It’s a fun-friendly day with free children’s activities like a jumping castle, merry-go-round, clowns, face painting and more.

“The BBQ is operating, and afternoon tea facilities will be available all afternoon along with a variety of cold refreshments.

“There will be a Fashions on the Field and a courtesy bus from Nyngan RSL to the races and return after the last race.”

Bathurst Thoroughbred Racing will stage its popular Soldier’s Saddle meeting on ANZAC Day with entertainment, food stalls, a Fashions on the Field and courtesy buses leaving the RSL from midday.

Feature race is the $32,000 Bathurst RSL Soldier’s Saddle over 1400m.

Other NSW race meetings on ANZAC Day are Gosford, Armidale, Nyngan, Murwillumbah, and of course, Royal Randwick.

And the following day Tomingley picnic races kicks off with a Calcutta on Friday (from 6:30pm) at the Crossroads Hotel, Tomingley.

Then next Saturday its raceday with a six-race program featuring the 2019 Alkane Resources Tomingley Picnic Cup.

“We will have a Fashions on the Field, bookmakers, a TAB van and Sky Channel, as well as a raceday raffle and 100 Club,” said Tomingley’s Emma Rees.

“Our gates open at 11am with a bar, so no BYO, canteen, coffee van and children’s entertainment.”
