The annual Emerald Cup is coming again this year and so too is the excitement of horses, hats and hip pocket punts! Come out and see who the top racer of the day will be on Saturday 27 May. Come and join us for a fine day of racing at Pioneer Park.
The brand new Darley Kingsford Smith Cup replaces the BTC Cup Day to thrust the 2017 Channel Seven Brisbane Racing Carnival into top gear. This historically named raceday welcomes punters to the heritage-listed Eagle Farm Racecourse for a day of complete intemperance and first-class beauty.
The Mackay Turf Club & Event Centre is one of Queensland’s leading Thoroughbred racing clubs and premier functions & events facilities, conducting over 20 Midweek races and eight feature race days throughout the year, including major events like the Amateurs Day.
Racing Queensland values the significant contributions made by the many participants across all 3 codes of Racing and recognise the value of consultation for the betterment of the Industry.
Racing Queensland announces the establishment of new industry advisory panels across the three codes of racing in the state.
Designed to play an important role in the future of the industry in Queensland, the industry advisory panels will meet quarterly to assist Racing Queensland in the process of formulating strategy and making recommendations on important industry matters.
Each advisory group is made up of a cross section of key industry representatives. The list of representatives on each panel is outlined below.
The groups will be chaired by Racing Queensland Directors with specific code experience and will be attended by representatives from Racing Queensland management.
