Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

Horse rac­ing is re­turn­ing to the lo­cal area next week and there will be at no bet­ter place than the Ber­ri­gan Race­course for the Fin­ley Au­tumn Cup.

This is the fifth run­ning of the Fin­ley Au­tumn Cup and the meet­ing will com­prise five races on Satur­day, March 16.

Gates open at 11am and the fam­ily friendly at­mos­phere promises to cre­ate a per­fect day of coun­try rac­ing.

Last year’s event saw a lo­cal Cup win­ner with Ber­ri­gan trainer Paul McVicar claim­ing the fea­ture race with Maco Napret.

Ber­ri­gan Race Club is a group of hard work­ing lo­cal vol­un­teers and every year the race­course is beau­ti­fully pre­sented for all the on track ac­tion.

But the day isn’t just about rac­ing with the ever pop­u­lar Fash­ions on the Field com­pe­ti­tion.

Cat­e­gories in­clude Lady of the Day, Cou­ple of the Day, Lit­tle Race­goer Un­der 10 Years, and Young Race­goer 11-18 years.

There is a large pub­lic bar, and of course there are book­mak­ers and TAB avail­able.

Buses will run from Fin­ley to Ber­ri­gan and back on the day.

Seats are avail­able in the re­served mar­quee for $15 per seat or $150 for a ta­ble of 10.

The au­tumn rac­ing pe­riod is al­ways ex­cit­ing across the South­ern Riverina with the Tocumwal Easter Races and De­niliquin An­zac Day Races among the pop­u­lar high­lights.

For more in­for­ma­tion or to book a spot in the mar­quee con­tact Ber­ri­gan Race Club sec­re­tary Carolyn Alexan­der 0427 668062.
