Talmoi Picnic Race Club, now under the leadership of president Justin Ramsay, will celebrate 106 years of racing at Garah this Saturday – a meeting that proudly continues a rich tradition of bush racing in the north-west.
The six-race meeting, featuring the time-honoured 1400m Talmoi Cup and 1000m Talmoi Bracelet, winds up bush racing’s Golden Triangle for another year after hugely successful days at Moree and Mallawa.
“It’s going to be another great meeting,” Ramsay said. “Everyone is welcome to join the committee and the community for lunch in the president’s marquee from around midday onwards or patrons can bring along their own food and refreshments and roll out their picnic rugs for a relaxing day out at one of the best picnic race meetings in rural NSW.
“Our very own Garah P&C will also provide great food throughout the day and a couple of jumping castles, kaleidoscope face painting and plenty of other kids’ activities will make for a great family day out.”
On-course entertainment from Brock Mather will start at 4.30pm and buses from Moree as well as Mungindi will be provided.
