Big Crowd Anticipated For Gundagai's Snake Gully Cup Carnival

By Mark Brassel

It’s been a big few weeks for Gundagai secretary Len Tozer who has been busy preparing his beloved town for a huge influx of visitors later this week.

Tozer has devoted half a century to Gundagai-Adelong Race Club, a feat that was recognised last month by the racing community.

Tozer was honoured with the prestigious Simon Nivison Special Achievement Award during the NSW Country & Provincial awards for his contribution to the Club and his Gundagai community.

This Friday and Saturday [15 & 16 November] the Club holds its popular two-day Snake Gully Cup Carnival.

“The Carnival starts with a golf day on Thursday at Gundagai Sports Club with a four-person Ambrose and proceeds going to National Jockeys Trust,” said Tozer.

“Then there will be a Calcutta at Gundagai District Services Club starting at 7pm.”

It’s raceday on Friday with the feature event the $100,000 Snake Gully Cup (1400m) supported by the $50,000 Snake Gully Sprint.

Talented galloper Handle the Truth, winner of the 2019 The Kosciuszko and runner-up in the Goulburn Cup, is among the entries for the Cup.

“It’s a Racing NSW Country Showcase meeting with prizemoney of $380,000,” Tozer said. “We have a Fashions on the Field with excellent prizes and a courtesy bus to and from track on both days.”

The Carnival rounds up with Hair of the Dog Cup Day on the Saturday with total prizemoney of $164,000.

“Saturday is a Family Fun Day with jumping castles, a merry-go-round and face painting.”

Meanwhile, Lismore Turf Club will stage its popular Hospitality Industry Raceday tomorrow.

“The busy Christmas times are coming, and we know what that means for our fellow hospitality workers,” said Daniel Kedraika, LTC’s functions & operations manager.

“We encourage those workers to take the day off tomorrow and get trackside.

“Lismore Turf Club is offering free tickets to any hospitality business to give to their workers as an early Christmas bonus.

“Contact our Club to organise tickets or to find out about our catering and beverage packages to make it a real party.”

LTC continues its popular ‘Taxi Receipt = Free Entry’ promotion with the air-conditioned Members Lounge open to all attendees and full TAB and bookmaker facilities.

And next Saturday [16 November] Bathurst Thoroughbred Racing hosts its Christmas function for the general public and sponsors at Tyers Park.

“We’ll have a jumping castle and children’s face painting,” said BTR’s GM, Michelle Tarpenning.

“For just $50 this includes general admission, racebook, gourmet BBQ buffet and a complimentary beverage.”

A courtesy bus is available at Bathurst RSL Club leaving from 11:30am.
