Pride and passion rules Isaac country race day

Central Queensland country racing galloped into the hearts of minds of punters at Moranbah’s Spring Racing Carnival at the weekend.

Amid the thunder of hooves and the clinking of champagne glasses on the green, Treasure Park has become a favourite gathering ground on Isaac’s annual social calendar.

Isaac Regional Council Deputy Mayor Geoff Bethel, who opened the race day on Saturday, November 11, said the race day oozes country charm.

“From first class racing, through to the fun of getting dressed up and having a punt, the spirit of Isaac was loud and proud again this year,” he said. 

"Moranbah's Spring Racing Carnival is a true reflection of what we love about regional living.

“Congratulations to the Moranbah Race Club and event organisers for delivering another stellar community event.”

Race winners were:

  1. Greatest Version Strength Open Handicap 1000m Anzus (trained by Olivia Cairns, ridden by Jockey Rachel Shred).
  2. Adept Contractors Benchmark 55 Handicap 1000m Eldiym (trained by Clinton Garland, ridden by Jockey Quayde Krogh).
