Wondai Race Club will be holding its annual Caulfield Cup race meeting – usually one of its biggest meetings of the year – at the Wondai Racecourse in Baynes Street on Saturday (October 17).
It will be a five-race meeting – including the Wondai Cup – and the first race will leave the barriers at 12:55pm.
Due to COVID restrictions, however, the meeting will be patron-free.
This means no spectators and entry will be restricted to essential racing industry personnel only.
The usual features of the meeting – such as an on-course TAB, live telecasts of interstate races, an undercover betting ring, barbecue and bar, the Lady Luck Cocktail Bar and the Fashions On The Field competition – will be absent.
The South Burnett Race Club said it took the decision to run a patron-free meeting reluctantly and hopes to return to normal meetings in 2021, kicking off with its popular Anzac Day race meeting on April 25.
Saturday’s meeting is being sponsored by Samios Plumbing Supplies, G. Crumpton and Sons, the Ryan family, Murgon Tyres and More and Murgon Outdoor Equipment.
