End of Racing Season


Our pony season will end this year on Saturday 28th March.  Points racing will end on Friday 13th March 2009 as Gawler Cup is Saturday 14th March.


Saturday 21st and 28th March will be ‘Race for Fun’ Nights.  This will allow ponies to be re-handicapped if necessary if they haven’t enjoyed much success so far this season.  Saturday 28th March will also be ‘Crazy Hair Night’ for the ponies and children.  Come in a theme or add some colour, glitter etc to their ponies.  A prize will be awarded to the ‘Best or Craziest’ Pony and Driver.


Please no loose ribbon etc as this may scare other ponies.




To be held at Globe Derby Park on Sunday 5th April 2009.  More details will be available soon.




We wish Brodie Webster every success when he represents South Australia at the Gold Coast for this year’s Pony Interdominion with ‘Till We Meet Again’ and Chilli Knights’.  Good Luck.
