The Forbes Jockey Club hosted a successful race day when the Forbes Spring Races was held at the Racecourse on Saturday.
It was a six race meet, headlined by the 2019 Forbes Spring Cup, which was Race 5 in the program and proudly sponsored by Lachlan Ready Mix. The 2019 Forbes Spring Cup was won by 6 year old bay gelding, Bring A Beer Along. The gelding was ridden by Dubbo based jockey, Ken Dunbar and trained by Narromine’s Wayne Collison.
The ever popular Fashions on the Field was hotly contested with a total prize pool of over $3000. There were five categories to cover a range of entries. Winner of the Tiny Tots (3-8 years) category was Tui Rivera from Condobolin. Winner of the Junior
(8-16 years) category was Stella Bull from Forbes. Winner of the Cutting Edge category, which is for individual style and distinctiveness, was Katie Ralph from Forbes. Winner of the Most Elegant Lady category was Melissa Parslow from Forbes. Winner of the Best Dressed Gent category was Mitchell Andrews from Forbes.
Forbes Jockey Club would like to send a huge thank you to all their sponsors, particularly major sponsors Lachlan Ready Mix and Independent Cement & Lime. Without the support of sponsors, this race day couldn’t happen.
The Club is planning to host an even bigger and better event next year.
