Hawkesbury Race Club Chief Executive Officer James Heddo said: “We were very fortunate to miss a lot of the rain that fell throughout Sydney during last week and offered a complete package of high-quality racing as well as plenty of off-course entertainment, which has been embraced by the local Community.

“The increases in prizemoney provided by Racing NSW delivered the strongest fields ever assembled at a Hawkesbury Cup meeting with competitive racing and close finishes adding to the excitement on the day.

“Our off-course entertainment, including a hotly contested Fashions on the Field Competition, as well as a stunning after Cup performance by Furnace and the Fundamentals, was well received by everyone in attendance.

“The Hawkesbury Stand-Alone meeting was established in 2006 and continues to go from strength to strength.

“I look forward to now working with Racing NSW to look at any opportunities to further enhance this event.”
