Enjoy an extra raceday
Horse racing fans are being treated to an extra racing event at Matamata Racing Club this year.
The Norwood Farm Machinery Centre Raceday is happening on January 30 at Matamata Racecourse.
The free event is being described as a perfect afternoon activity for all the family.
You can enjoy the free admission into the grounds and members’ grandstand or sprawl on the grass in front of the public grandstand.
‘‘It is Saturday racing at it’s best, complete with a children’s entertainment area,’’ Matamata Racing Club’s sponsorship and marketing coordinator Jaye Clark said.
Clark encouraged residents to take advantage of the special, one-off event.
She said the event, which has ten races instead of the normal eight, is a great lead up to the iconic J Swap Contractors Matamata Breeders’ Stakes Premier Racedayand the Fashion in the Field, which will be held on February 27, 2016.
She said the racing club was grateful to the ‘‘wonderful sponsors’’ that helped make the Norwood Farm Machinery Centre Raceday happen.
The first race is at 12.13 pm at the Matamata Racecourse on January 30.
