$27k Raised For Farmers At Muswelbrook's Aquis Farm Race Day

Two owners donated part of the prizemoney they won at Muswellbrook races on Tuesday to drought relief for Upper Hunter farmers.

Aquis Farm and the NSW TAB combined with Muswellbrook Race Club to sponsor the drought relief day which raised more than $27,500.

Well known breeder and owner Damion Flower donated $5000 after his colt Rubble, trained at Tamworth by Melanie O’Gorman, won the Divine Prophet @Aquisfarm Maiden (1280m).

Forty minutes later John O’Connor, the owner of the Gregory McFarlane trained Flash Stinger, followed up with a donation of $2500 after his promising three-year-old won the Spieth @Aquisfarm Benchmark 58 (1000m).

Aquis Farm provided well known racing and media identity Richard Callander with $2500 to bet on each race with winnings going to the drought relief program.

Glen Munsie from the NSW TAB promised to make up any shortfall to the sum of $20,000.

Callander managed to back one winner.

“The drought is affecting everyone in the Upper Hunter Valley and we hope this money will help,” Muswellbrook Race Club’s General Manager Duane Dowell said.

“It was a great gesture from Aquis Farm to donate the money and an equally great gesture from the TAB to make up the shortfall.

“Richard’s punting efforts added even more interest to the day.

“Aquis Farm has just joined us as a sponsor and on behalf of our chairman, John Sunderland and the committee we welcome them aboard and thank them for this gesture.”
