It was a perfect day for picnic racing with riding honours going to Debbie Waymouth who with two come from behind rides snared a double with Salsa Club and Toro.
Results for Balnarring 13th April and the days happenings in the Gallery.
Today marked the end of the 2008/09 Picnic Racing season and by all reports crowds were up significantly this season which seems to have come from the support of picnic racing patrons when signalled by Racing Victoria that it may lose a number of meetings and venues. Congratulations once again go to the many volunteers who operate these clubs and put in countless hours to make them a success for patrons and their communities.
The final event for the season will be the Picnic Racing Awards Night, details of the date and venue will be posted when available.
Hope you had some luck on the punt throughout the season,
Balnarring has certainly come a long way since December 1897 as depicted in the photo from the University of Melbourne Archives.
