MOE Racing Club’s little brother held its season launch on Friday.
Members and guests of the Latrobe Valley Racing Club gathered in the Glenview Park dining room to formally announce the start of the season.
Latrobe Valley Racing Club chairperson Frank Bezzina addressed the auditorium, and said the committee was eagerly awaiting the club’s two race meetings, Derby Day and Traralgon Cup.
The Traralgon-based club differs from other racing clubs across Gippsland in Moe, Sale, Bairnsdale and Stony Creek, as it is an entirely volunteer organisation.
The club has welcomed a few new upgrades in recent times, including an outdoor cover for members, and is also aiming to add to the number of meetings it hosts per year.
Latrobe Valley has joined racing clubs across Gippsland in working together to see the sport thrive moving forward.
In terms of local cups, Moe is the first cab (or should we say cup) off the rank.
Next week is the Sale Cup on Sunday, October 23, and then Derby Day on Saturday, October 29.
The Traralgon Cup will be held at Latrobe Valley Racing Club on Sunday, November 27.
