Buses head to the Killarney Cup day
THE Killarney Hotel-Motel Killarney Cup race meeting will be held tomorrow at the Warwick Turf Club track at Allman Park.
There are 68 nominations for the meeting, an outstanding response from owners and trainers.
Warwick Turf Club president Phil Grant said the track would be in good condition for the race meeting.
"The rain last week has enhanced the track," he said.
"The track is irrigated most weekends but we are irrigating less at present due to the cold weather in winter."
There will be bookies and the TAB on course operating on Warwick and metropolitan meetings tomorrow.
The main race will be the Killarney Hotel-Motel Killarney Cup which has been won previously by Solar Choice, a horse trained by Killarney trainer Les Clarke and son Stephen.
There are no Southern Downs horses in the cup this year but there has been interest from trainers as far as Gold Coast and Tamworth.
Buses have been organised tomorrow to transport Killarney patrons to and from the races.
Sandy Wallace is the Killarney bus organiser and can be contacted for bookings.
A bus has also been organised from Warwick to Killarney for the Calcutta at the Killarney Hotel tonight. All the buses are free.
Anyone interested in booking a seat on the calcutta bus can contact the turf club on 4661 1023.
Admission to the races at Allman Park tomorrow will be $10 with children under 15 free.
Gates open at 11am with the first race on the program set down for 1pm.
