Extra Murtoa race meeting in August

July 20, 2014

The news that Murtoa Racing has picked up a meeting from Warrnambool was well received by the hard working committee of the club. The meeting, originally scheduled for Ballarat but transferred to Warrnambool due to the ongoing issues with the Ballarat track surface, is now to be held at Murtoa on Saturday August9th.Warrnambool’s track surface is also feeling the effects of a wet winter and is unable to run the meeting.

Over the past four years, Murtoa has acquired at least one extra meeting each year due to an inability of other Victorian tracks to handle wet weather.

The club has decided to offer free admission to the seven race card.

The newly refurbished bar areas offers a warm, comfortable setting to view the races live or on the oversized plasma screen. A TAB outlet will also operate from the lounge for the comfort of punters.

Race goers will be treated to the traditional fare of Our Lady Help of Christians Parents and Friends with the barbecue sure to be very popular.

The meeting will be a curtain raiser for the usual hugely successful Murtoa Cup meeting on October 4th.

The club has decided to offer race names for the August meeting to those businesses who commit to race naming sponsorship for the Cup meeting. This is an excellent opportunity to give businesses national and international exposure. At this stage there are only three races remaining available for naming rights. The bonus to sponsors of having a race name at both meetings is one of the many benefits the club achieves for its loyal sponsors by picking up this extra race meeting.
