They’re off and rac­ing

Central and North Burnett Times - - SES WEEK 2012 -

ANY venue that has seen 140 years of rac­ing will go through a lot of changes in its life­time.

And the Mt Perry Race Club is no dif­fer­ent.

The club is en­ter­ing a new­era af­ter sig­nif­i­cant up­grades to the fa­cil­i­ties have vastly im­proved the safety of the gen­eral pub­lic, jock­eys and horses.

A com­plete out­side rail has been in­stalled, start­ing gates have been fully en­closed, sad­dle en­clo­sures are fully fenced and stew­ard mounds have been con­structed around the track.

Mt Perry Race Club me­dia of­fi­cer Joy Jensen told the Cen­tral and North Bur­nett Times the amount of work com­pleted was “huge”.

“It’s very high qual­ity work to en­sure safety is para­mount,” she said.

“Thanks to Evo­lu­tion Min­ing who have pro­vided steel and funded us very gen­er­ously and in gen­eral have given great sup­port.”
