With COVID restrictions lifting sooner rather than later, the Stawell Racing Club are hopeful of inviting patrons back inside to the see the refurbished track.
Plans at the Club are going forward with restrictions being lifted and crowds will hopefully return to the track with umbrella packages, general admission tickets and The Off the Bench marquee tickets available online soon.
The club was also planning a day at the races everyone can enjoy with live music, kids' activities, and action on the newly renovated track.
More details about these events are still to come.
In the action on the track, September was a month full of results and challenges with trainers from across the region scoring strong results.
The month of September was busy for trainer Andrew Bobbin with Fighting Sweet winning a 1800 metres maiden at Horsham at good odds.
A Fighting Fury dominated at Coleraine over 1600m in a benchmark 58 race, winning impressively by six lengths.
His stable also continued throughout the month with some important placings.
Linda Meech continued on her winning streak with another win on He's A Balter at Caulfield.
Meech also rode a few placings throughout the month, warming-up for a big spring ahead.
Local trainers Mark Pegus, Dane Smith, Deanne Taylor and Doug Whitworth had placings throughout September with wins from all stables not far away as the heights of the spring racing season approach.
