I’d like to thank all our supporters including the committee, volunteers, the Quota ladies, our sponsors and The Parkes Phoenix. We unfortunately had to abandon our last race meeting as the track was deemed to be unsafe for the horses and jockeys. The track was inspected twice by the NSW Racing Stewards from Dubbo with the hope that we might have been able to race, but this was not so.
We were looking forward to our local trainers having a run. One local trainer, Sarah Mcilrick, was hoping to have her first official race start. We are racing again in January. One of our most popular meetings is the Australia Day Meeting, which we are looking forward to conducting. Hopefully it won’t be washed out.
So once again, I’d like to thank all our supporters and look forward to seeing everyone trackside next year.
