Holiday races a winner for all

PUNTERS and families made the most of the school holidays with a day of activities at the Stony Creek Races yesterday (Tuesday).
Racegoers enjoyed a full program of events with on site betting and catering while families could all partake in the field day fun with children’s activities held across the meet.
One race, the ‘Good on Ya Tony Livingstone’ was named in honour of this 50 year volunteer with the club.
Stony Creek Racing Club chief executive officer Sarah Wolf said the event once again proved to be a major success.
“We had a successful day because the weather stayed nice. The children had an absolute ball with sports activities run all day at the Kelly Sports marquee,” she said.
“We held a massive Easter egg hunt and children were also kept entertained with face painting and a balloon artist.”
Jockeys and trainers gave positive reports with access to newly painted facilities.
“All the jockeys enjoyed the meet and were wrapped to have nice, clean rooms to use,” Ms Wolf said.
“Considering it was a Tuesday midweek meeting we had fantastic numbers.”

Winning ride: Brian Higgins was first to cross the finish line on Nadeem’s Melody in the Cervus Equipment Plate on Tuesday at the Stony Creek Races.
