Grenfell Jockey Club Race Day 2018

RACING TOMORROW, SEPTEMBER 22

Following the successful sesquicentenary- the 150th anniversary of thoroughbred racing in Grenfell last year, where descendants of early committee including Griffiths, Fountain and Knight families returned, the Grenfell Jockey Club look forward to another successful event this Saturday, September 22. 

The six race program features the Grenfell Cup as well as the Henry Lawson Loaded Dog Handicap. 

The track is in excellent condition despite the ongoing drought and the racing surface should be in tip-top condition.

Attractions will include the Grenfell Town and District Band, Fashions on the Field, TAB, Bookmakers, On Course Punter’s Club as well as the usual Bar and Canteen facilities and the Lions’ Jumping Castle and Merry Go Round for the kiddies.

Fashions on the Field prizes will be awarded for Tiny Tots, Junior Girl, Teenage Girl, Elegant Lady, Best Dressed Gent, Best Dressed Couple and Most Outstanding Hat. 

So why not get dressed in your finest and get along to the Grenfell Jockey Club’s Henry Lawson Loaded Dog and Grenfell Cup this Saturday  – you will have a great day out and you may even win a fantastic prize.
