En­joy an ex­tra race­day

Matamata Chronicle - - What’s On - ABBY BROWN

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.
