Late in 2013, the Tatura and Shepparton Racing Club was allocated an extra race in their season calendar, with a transfer of an eight-race TAB meeting from the Werribee Racing Club.January 28, 2014 4:15pm
Tatura and Shepparton Racing Club chief executive Desiree Pettit said as a result, this meeting, scheduled for Friday, February 7, was recently approved as one of the few twilight meetings set in country Victoria.
‘‘Racing at Tatura will commence at 2.15 pm, with the final race at 6.30 pm, followed shortly after by the first race at Moonee Valley’s popular night races,’’ she said.
Ms Pettit said entry would be free and the bar would be open on course until 7 pm.
‘‘To take advantage of the unique opportunity though, the club is hosting a business networking function in the Maloney Lounge for people to get together in a relaxed environment to enjoy an afternoon making new professional contacts,’’ she said.
‘‘Working with the Shepparton Chamber of Commerce, the club hopes to engage professionals from all business sectors in the Goulburn Valley by offering the exclusive lounge with finger food, premium drinks package, private TAB, bar and bathrooms, SKY1 big screen, racebook, Punters Club and giveaways, including a $1600 naming rights package for the Tatura Easter Cup meeting for one lucky business.’’
Ms Pettit said gates opened on race day at 1.30 pm and tickets for the Summer Twilight Networking Lounge could be purchased for $60 from the club’s page on the Country Racing website.
‘‘All information about inclusions are available on that website and tax receipts will be issued following purchase,’’ she said.
