The Ewan Amateur Turf Club Inc. (EATC) committee is proud to honour the true spirit of country racing, by conducting its annual two-day race meeting, on the banks of Stockyard Creek in North Queensland.
This event was the last professional, grass fed race meeting operating in Queensland. Although no longer grass fed, it is the passionate aspiration of the committee to ensure that all future race meetings will be conducted so as to preserve the rich country racing heritage and for future generations to celebrate and appreciate the efforts and achievements of country racing’s forefathers.
The name of the Club, Ewan, is an acknowledgment to the humble beginnings of the race, when the meeting was held at the old mining township of Ewan, on the northern banks of Running River some 100 miles north of Townsville.
