Hawkesbury Race Club Stages the Provincial Midway Championships 

A massive crowd was in attendance as the Hawkesbury Race Club kicked off 2023 in style with the running of the Polytrack Provincial/Midway Championships Race Day on Saturday 4 March.

Locals moved on from the trials and tribulations of Covid and floods in the past few years to attend a fantastic day of racing and entertainment.

“We are thrilled with the response we received from the local Community, as well as racegoers from far and wide,” stated Hawkesbury Race Club CEO James Heddo.

“After a break from racing over the Christmas period, the interest and support we received for this race day is a clear indication of what we can achieve in 2023.”

The day included music from the James Brothers, as well as the TAB Time Trials activation, where one lucky racegoer won $500 after proving to be the fastest jockey on the day.

On the racetrack, local galloper Phearson capped off a wonderful day by winning the $150,000 Polytrack Provincial/Midway Championships Heat, thus qualifying for the $500,000 final to be run at Randwick on Saturday 8 April.

Hawkesbury Race Club has a busy period of racing coming up over the next few months, including another Saturday racing event on 1 April, before the Clubs biggest race day of the year, the Richmond Club Hawkesbury Gold Cup Race Day, on Saturday 22 April.

“We have big plans in store for this year’s Cup Day event, and last Saturdays race day fills us with confidence that the 2023 Hawkesbury Gold Cup will be our biggest and best yet,” said Heddo.
