DAY OUT AT THE RACES SUPPORTS OUR HAWKESBURY

April 06, 2021

Federal Member for Macquarie Susan Templeman has congratulated Hawkesbury Race Club on its Easter Monday race day held to support the local community in the wake of the recent floods.

 

RacingNSW moved the meeting to Easter Monday, when no other racing was scheduled in Sydney, and the club took the opportunity to not only thank those on the front line during the floods, but to give locals an affordable ‘getaway’ from recent events.

 

“The ‘Support Our Hawkesbury’ day saw free general admission with gold coin donation, with all proceeds passed directly to the NSW State Emergency Service,” Ms Templeman said.

 

“There was some great entertainment for all ages, and the Club told me emergency workers and their families were invited along to enjoy the day out.

 

“I am sure we will have a range of opportunities to thank the emergency workers from the SES, NSW Police, RFS and Fire and Rescue for their efforts during and after the floods, and I congratulate the Club on finding an innovative way to show gratitude for those who did so much to help our community.”

 

Ms Templeman joined Hawkesbury SES Unit Commander Kevin Jones to sash the winner of the third, Gleneagles, which took out the 1000 metre 2yo Maiden Plate under Keagan Latham for Rosehill-based trainer, David Payne.

 

Hawkesbury’s next race day will be held on Wednesday, April 14.
