THANKS

The Balnarring Picnic Racing Club would like to thank its volunteers, staff, service providers, Racing Victoria officials and Country Racing Victoria who make all our meetings safe and family friendly events conducted in the true spirit of picnic racing.

Thanks to the dedicated owners and trainers who brought their horses to Balnarring this year and to the jockeys who rode them.

We could not have achieved the results we did without the support of our members and the racing public through your attendance at our meetings.
