Racing returned to the historic Emu Plains Racecourse on Saturday, December 1, for the first of five meetings conducted by the Balnarring Picnic Racing Club.
It would be hard to find a more picturesque setting for a racecourse than Emu Plains, with magnificent gums, distant views of Western Port Bay and plenty of picnic spots for a family outing. With a variety of food vendors and a well-stocked bar, everyone will be catered for.
The children’s playground is always popular along with face-painting and children’s rides, while marquee sites and roped off areas can be booked online by visiting balnarringraces.com, where you’ll also find details of trials and jump-outs. You can also renew your memberships or apply for membership online; application forms are also available by calling the office on 5983 9430.
The club has continued its support of charities with another $5000 being distributed among five groups, and it has pledged $1500 for drought relief in East Gippsland, where three picnic racing clubs are fighting to survive.
Race days at Balnarring have something for everyone and are perfect for relaxing with family and friends. That’s why it’s arguably the best picnic racing course in Victoria.
