For almost 20 years the Terang Rotary Club has manned the gates at Dalvui Raceway and has developed a positive working relationship with the Terang Harness Racing Club.
The money Rotary raises through the service they provide enables the Terang club to support a range of local, national and international projects as a part of their mission within the community.
During a race meeting a few years ago, Rotary stalwarts Graeme Twaddle and Brian Glennen began discussing the restoration of a turnstile used at the main entrance. The project was presented to their fellow members and it was agreed to complete the works in appreciation of their involvement with the Harness Racing Club.
The results of their outstanding work can be witnessed when you pass through the gate. The turnstile was acquired from Moonee Valley Racing Club many years ago, and the restoration is very impressive.
Terang Harness Racing Club is grateful for the ongoing support of the Rotary Club, and hope to continue their close association for many years.
Continuing the local community involvement, the Terang Co-op will enter its 16th year as sponsor of the Pacing Cup. The February 16 feature race meeting promises to provide plenty of action both on and off the track, with live entertainment, kids’ activities and competitions.
The extremely popular double seater sulky race returns for the third year. Local celebrities will team with local reinsmen to compete in a race on the track. Future harness racing drivers will participate in pony trots and there will be retired racehorses that are part of the Pat Your Hero program. This year the race has attracted Group 2 status for the first time, with an increase in stakes to $60,000.
South West Conveyance expands their involvement with the club through their sponsorship of the Trotters Cup for the first time. The club welcomes and appreciates the involvement of Tania Jasper, Alister McKean and their team.
