Nine races have been scheduled for the 2018 Audi Centre Toowoomba Weetwood race day on Saturday 7 April.

This announcement is much to the delight of Toowoomba Turf Club Chief Executive Officer Blair Odgers.

“The strength of acceptances for last year’s event has set us in good stead for 2018,” Odgers said.

“We won’t be surprised if strong nominations lead to Racing Queensland extending the program to 10 races for the day again this year.

“This event is set to be one of the largest and richest race events ever conducted at Clifford Park. Last year, a prize money record was set of $850,000, which goes to show the growth and strength of the Weetwood carnival.”

This years race day will feature prize money totalling more than $780,000.

Announcements for this years event will continue to roll out over the next few weeks, including the announcement of this years Face Of Weetwood Ambassador.

Race-goers are also eagerly awaiting the unveiling the new Clive Berghofer Grande Atrium marquee project, a new premier sponsor, and celebrity guests for race day and the Weetwood Calcutta Sportsman’s Lunch.

“We’re excited that this years event will be the first race day inside our new Clive Berghofer Grande Atrium function space,” said Odgers.

Tickets are now on sale for the 2018 Audi Centre Toowoomba Weetwood race day.
