The Talmoi Picnic Races will celebrate their 101st meet with some fast-paced action trackside.
The Fashions on the Field is always a hit, with the roving judge picking out the best dressed two of the day. This means anyone is in with a chance, so racegoers, be sure to dress to impress.
As has been the case across all the Golden Triangle race meets this year, $1000 trainer and jockey bonuses have drawn a strong field of nominations for the races.
The six-race program will feature the 1400m WC&R Hunter Memorial Talmoi Picnic Cup and the Helen Boland Memorial Picnic Trophy Bracelet 1000m handicap.
The Talmoi Cup will see Crowntreno trained by Martin Fernando battle it out with Peter Sinclair’s Crystal Club and Nathan Sinclair’s Innocent Billy. The Trophy Bracelet will see Fernando’s Mountain Brew up against Nathan Sinclair’s Sally Supreme.
The bracelet and cup will be supported by the 1000m WB Newcomen Memorial Picnic Maiden Plate; the 1200m FP Doran Memorial Picnic Maiden Plate; the 1200m Col Goldman Memorial Class B handicap and the 800m HT Siddins Memorial Class B Handicap.
For those wishing to head out to Talmoi to experience true bush racing, a bus will be available to travel to Garah. It will leave the Royal Hotel at 12 noon and return at 6pm.
Tickets for the bus are $10 and can be purchased from Pitman Deakin.
The Moree Scouts will be running a barbecue throughout the day and a bar will be open. The Boomi Co-Op will be catering for the night function and a hot meal will be available to purchase. Bar and barbecue facilities will be available at the race day and Moree band Little Poppy will provide entertainment.
