Local Racing Personalities Honoured At Port Macquarie (Sunday)

By Rod Fuller

Strong nominations (totaling 153) have been received for the Port Macquarie race meeting set down for this Sunday (21st May). The track (currently a Soft 5) has had a break of just over three weeks since the last meeting conducted and, barring wet weather, should provide a good surface for racing with a uniform grass cover.

The meeting perpetuates the memory of four fine local racing personalities with the feature race being the Athol Platt Memorial, named in honour of the former trust president and spearhead for the reconstruction of the new Port Macquarie track and facilities in 1967.

Other races on the program pay tribute to former champion local jockey, Col Foster, outstanding trainer and racing official, Bob Graham, and a man who dedicated his life to racing in the Port Macquarie and Wauchope districts, Stephen Cook.

Prizemoney for the program totals $140,000 with the first of seven races scheduled to commence at 12.30pm.
