The Picnic Race Meet of the Year

January 12, 2011

The Dederang Picnic Races was held this past weekend.

Yet again, it was a fantastic day. More than 4000 people flocked to the track to see Cape Danger run a Dederang Racetrack record carrying 75.5kgs, and taking out the Cup. Exceptionally strong fields delivered a day of competitive racing for the 6 race card.

Records were also set in the Fashions on the Field with huge numbers of entrants and the introduction of some new categories, and some Dederang locals taking out prizes.

It was a scorching hot day, but plenty of cold drinks kept everyone cool. Great stamina was shown by the big numbers kicking on at The Ranga (the iconic Dederang Pub) into the early hours.

Once again a great day out and a fantastic way to kick off the new year.
