Success planning for Growers Race Day

THE Burdekin Race Club will be looking to emulate the success of its 2021 Burdekin Growers Race Day, as plans fall into place for the 2022 event to be held on Saturday, May 21 on the Home Hill track.

In what will be a strictly 18+ event, the club is well on the way to success with Table Reservations and pre-purchase gate entry tickets all going well at this stage of the preparations.

Plans are also in place for 5000 booklets detailing all information about the day to be distributed throughout the shire ahead of the meeting.

The award-winning Burdekin Growers Race Day provides the chance for everyone to be a winner with the Brown Brothers five categories in the “Fashions on the Field” offering thousands of dollars in prizes.

Mega prize draws and super bets will be given away to patrons during the afternoon; the Novice and Farmers Produce Challenge will take place once again and cartons of fresh local produce, donated by local vegetable growers, will be there for the taking at 5pm for every punter.

Gates will open for the feast of entertainment at 11am and after Trent Bell entertains live on the Wilmar Sugar Stage till late, gates will close on the complex at 9pm to bring the day to an end.

There will be seven local races, with TAB facilities and local Bookmakers on course and entry will be $35 per person.
