Great to see a Darling Downs nag in with a mighty big show. More on that on the night.


If you can get to the starting gates some time between 7.30 and 8pm (Victorian time) we’ll get things moving as soon as we can.


The winner of the raffle will decide which charity the winnings go to. Tickets are $10 each.

In the good old days, the punters’ Saturday morning ritual included Three-state Turf Talk. Given the state of the federation, we’re calling this Monday night chat around Three-nation Turf Talk.


Looking forward to catching up.


Here’s the invitation to the Zoom meeting :
