The Wingham Cup will be held on 1 June 2018.
The race club is very pleased that the Wingham Services Club will again be the sponsor of the Wingham Cup.
A new feature race, the Corey Brown Cup will also be run for the first time on the day to recognise the win by the ‘Wingham Boy’ Corey Brown in the 2017 Melbourne Cup. A perpetual trophy to be displayed at the club is being created so the winners can be recorded for future years and trophies will be given to the winning trainer and jockey. The club is most hopeful that Corey will be able to attend the meeting and ride in a number of races. It is also hoped that a number of other prominent Sydney based jockeys will also be riding at the meeting.
The first of 8 races on the day will be at 12 noon and last at 4.20pm. The meeting is a ‘Showcase’ meeting which is supported by Racing NSW with each race having a minimum of $30,000 in prizemoney.
Gates will open at 10.30am. Adults $6.00, Pensioners $4.00.
