July 1, 2016Congratulations must go to the committee, the secretary and the picnic subcommittee of the Warwick Turf Club for the outstanding success of the meeting on May 14th. Over one thousand tickets were sold for entry to the picnic enclosure of the course, a record number since the decision was made by the former committee of the Picnic Race Club to relinquish their licence as a registered race club. The decision to incorporate the members of the former picnic club committee as a subcommittee of the Warwick Turf Club has proved the best for both parties as is evident by the numbers attending and the growing popularity of the day. Thanks also to Ergon Energy for again taking on the major sponsorship of the meeting. Racing commenced with the Southern Downs Ag 1100 metre Maiden Plate, won convincingly by the Gary Maroney trained gelding Man Overboard. The Oakey trained son of Over, ridden by Ron Goltz, proved too strong for the $2.80 favourite Datastar. Although recording recent minor placings at Goondiwindi and Nanango, Man Overboard started at the good price of $5 and won by a length and a quarter. Oakey trainers were again successful in the 1100m Warwick Automotive Benchmark 50 handicap when Hashtag Yolo saluted for Dale Murray and jockey Dale Missen at $5.50. The Markane gelding, a last start winner at Chinchilla, prevailed by a head to the Oakey trained Charzooka with a long head to the locally trained I Got Trix. The race proved to be a very competitive event both in betting and margins with less than three lengths covering the first six horses and the $4 favourite Spectacular Rock unplaced. The 1350 metre Ergon Energy QTIS Maiden Plate produced another Warwick winner for 3kg apprentice Grace Willoughby who partnered the Greg Cornish Beaudesert trained Easy Rocking gelding to a narrow win over the $1.90 favourite A New Sound ridden by Kenji Yoshida. Grace had guided Inka Dinka Doo to a win at the last Warwick meeting in April. The club was disappointed by the response to this QTIS race which attracted only seven starters despite the bonuses available. The consistent It’s All Irish finally broke through for Don Baker in the Bill and Margaret Hoiberg 1350m Benchmark 55 handicap and landed the second leg of a double for Ron Goltz. The Fastnet Rock gelding defeated the locally trained Galway Town by two and a quarter lengths yet started at the good price of $4. The club are very happy that the memorial race for the Hoibergs is being continued by their family. Bill was a former president and Margaret secretary of the club. The final race on the program proved a bonanza for Beaudesert trainer Tracy Green. In the 1200m Grove Juice Squeeze Benchmark 65 Handicap she saddled up the equal $4 favourites Omission and Roman Secret. Bookmakers would appear to have accessed it correctly when Omission defeated Roman Secret by two and a half lengths with the Moree trained Kyogle Town a long head away in third place. The All Bar One gelding Omission was well handled by Ben Cornell and has been a consistent performer for his owners over a number of seasons. The club would like to thank all sponsors and supporters for a highly successful day and again the weather was picture perfect. We look forward to the next meeting which will be the Killarney Cup meeting on June 25th. Published in RACE Magazine - July 2016
May 11, 2016The new pavilion at the Allman Park Racecourse will be ready for the Warwick Picnic Races on Saturday. The Warwick Turf Club received a grant for the construction of the pavilion which will seat the patrons in the pavilion area under cover at the races on Saturday. “We have 700 patrons booked in so far and more are welcome,” turf club president Phil Grant said. The new building has been dubbed The Coffee Club Pavilion for the picnic races and is being erected in an area where marquees have been set up for past picnic races. Will West from Tri-Steel is the contractor for the construction of the new pavilion and it is expected construction will finish tomorrow. The western wall will be enclosed along with part of the northern wall. Volunteers from the Warwick community worked hard last Saturday to help set up for the concreting of the floor area in the pavilion. Grant said he was happy with the nominations for the races on Saturday. “We can only start 12 horses as it is a non-TAB meeting and will have full fields in most races.” Gates open at noon Saturday for the five-race card. Race 1 is at 12.50pm. Bookings for the pavilion area, $45 a head, on www.warwickturfclub.org.au. Pavilion tickets will be $50 at the gate on the day. There will also be general admission to the races, $15 per person Warwick Daily News Published on 11 May 2016
