Picnics prove popular

THE races at Woolamai once again proved the place to be on Saturday to enjoy some quality racing and a good time.
Picnic racegoers were happy with the pleasant, slightly windy summer conditions, coming out in their hundreds to enjoy another great day at the track.
It was also a great day for the trainers and jockeys, with each of the six races providing a different winner on the day.
The racing wasn’t the only entertainment at Woolamai on Saturday, with a whole host of kid’s activities on offer.
As well as the usual clown and balloon tricks and face painting, kids were also able to try their hand at a multitude of sports, including hula hooping and cricket.
The next race meeting at Woolamai will be the Alex Scott and Staff Woolamai Cup, held on Saturday, February 7.
