By Anya Whitelaw

"If you like quality racing, then Tyers Park is the place to be this Sunday" - that is the opinion of Bathurst Thoroughbred Racing's general manager, Michelle Tarpenning, and given the meeting her club will host at Tyers Park it is hard to argue.

The eight-race meeting holds Racing NSW Country Showcase status, meaning that big purses are on offer and quality runners from local stables and beyond have been lured.

The feature, the 1800m Bathurst Cup, has a $50,000 purse while in total the day will see $275,000 awarded.

“It is a coup for the Club us to be awarded a Showcase meeting and to have that extra prizemoney,” Tarpenning said.

“We aim to make it a great day out for Bathurst people so we have a VIP area, trackside marquee and live music as well as a free sausage sizzle.

“It will be outstanding racing and we encourage people to come out and enjoy the atmosphere with us ... if you love your racing, then the place to be is Bathurst this Sunday.”

As for the racecourse, the recent hot weather has seen the club has put in plenty of work to ensure it is top notch.

“The track is in excellent condition at the moment and the weather is looking fantastic for the rest of the week,” Tarpenning said.

“Our track manager has really put in a lot of work on our track; he does for every race meeting we have here and it’s in incredible condition. It’s presently a Good 4 and that’s our goal to maintain that for raceday.”
