Nanango Race Club will be holding its August Race Meeting at the Lee Park Racecourse on Saturday.
This will be the first race meeting held in the South Burnett for the new racing year, and guests will be asked to comply with COVID-19 restrictions by signing in to the course.
However, all other features of the races – such as the bar, BBQ and race club canteen – will operate as usual, and undercover seating will be available as well as lawn seating.
The August meeting’s feature race is the $10,000 Nanango Cup, and this year it has attracted a strong field of contenders.
The annual Blessing Of The Jockeys ceremony before the first race will be observed as usual, and the winners of Nanango Race Club’s 2020-21 Premierships will also be announced.
Buses will be leaving Kingaroy’s Glendon Street Bus Depot at noon and the Fitzroy Hotel at 12:30pm.
Gates will open about 11:00am and Race 1 will leave the barriers at 12:50pm.
