Thangool celebrates spring
THANGOOL Race Club turned it on as punters got in the spirit of the spring racing carnival.
A strong contingent of racegoers donned their finest spring attire and braved the heat for a five-race program.
A handful of local owners were still buzzing from their monumental win in last weekend’s $1.3 million Kozciuszko at Randwick.
There’s nothing quite like country racing but the focus shifted to Melbourne late in the day for the running of the Caulfield Cup.
