It was a great day for racing considering all the bad weather we've been having. This was my first racing for the season, didn't want to take any chances and end up with Kissena rash or worse. The event was well run and there were loads of prizes (see pics below). The only negative were the spores / pollen floating around the park - I left the track sneezing, runny nose, headache, slight fever and itchy eyes.
