All members very welcome to attend.
National Jumps Day will be held in the Central Region, for the first time, on 26 September. An eight race card is scheduled, including three steeplechase events over the unique figure-eight course at Trentham, three hurdle races, a highweight and an Amateur riders’ race. It is likely that this will be the first time that an Amateur riders’ only race has ever been held at Trentham so bragging rights are certainly up for grabs.
General admission is free and the day is the final chance to witness jumping races in New Zealand for 2010.
National Jumps Day is also the final day of the El Cheapo Cars 2010 RACE Jumps Series and one lucky trainer will drive away in a Mazda Demio for 12 months, courtesy of Pat Baker and El Cheapo Cars.
A function is being held at Trentham Racecourse on the evening prior, with an open invitation to Trainers, Jockeys, Owners, Members, Jumping Enthusiasts and the racing public to attend. There will be full bar and food service available and the Wellington Racing Club encourages as many as possible to come along and celebrate jumps racing in a fun and casual environment. There is no entry cost.
