IT’S fan­tas­tic to see the rac­ing in­dus­try get­ting be­hind the Mark Hughes Foun­da­tion and the search to find a cure for brain cancer.

The Aus­tralian Turf Club has formed a part­ner­ship with the for­mer New­cas­tle Knights full­back for fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties dur­ing the au­tumn carnival.

The ATC and the Mark Hughes Foun­da­tion will also host the in­au­gu­ral Matt Callander race day at Rand­wick on June 23 to co­in­cide with the NRL’s won­der­ful Beanie For Brain Cancer week­end.

“Rac­ing and rugby league share many bonds and friend­ships and we hope to bring many of our fans to­gether to sup­port this great cause,” Aus­tralian Turf Club chair­man Lau­rie Macri said.
