2023 Boggabilla Cup First Leg of Triple Crown Series

Mon 10 July 2023


Winter racing continues at Gunsynd Park this Saturday July 15 when the Goondiwindi Race Club will stage the Carrington Cotton Boggabilla Cup.  The Boggabilla Cup continues the Gunsynd Park Cup circuit following the Inglewood Cup and the Vern Kleinschmidt Goondiwindi Cup to be run on Saturday September 9. That Cup will form part of the Gourmet in Gundy Weekend.

The recent Picnic circuit is now completed in northern NSW and the racing returns to the professional ranks this week. Recent showers have seen the track maintain a magnificent winter growth and a great day’s racing can be expected.

Regular Race callers Greg Kachel & Brett Moody are unavailable for this meeting and renown Race Caller, Paul "Doggsy" Dolan will call his first race at Gunsynd Park. Paul is a very much travelled Race Caller and has called at 115 centres to date and is looking forward to adding Goondiwindi to his list of venues.
