John Justice won the 2008 Redwood Classic with Retained.
Sunday July 15 is fast approaching and that means that it is once again Redwood day in the state’s north-west.
Maryborough will host what has become the flagship carnival for Trotting in country Victoria. The meeting will feature the $75,000 Group 1 Seelite Windows & Doors Victoria Trotters Derby Final and the $50,000 Group 1 Seelite Windows & Doors Redwood Classic on the Sunday.
This is the only opportunity squaregaiting fans have to experience Group 1 racing in a relaxed country environment.
Given the strong interest in the day the Metropolitan and Country Harness Racing Association has decided to put together a package for those in the Melbourne and Melton regions.
You will get a return coach trip, entry to the racetrack, race book, lunch and afternoon tea plus all the fun and excitement of the Redwood, for the cost of $65.00 per person. There will also be a punters club on track and a raffle on the bus for those who wish to join in.
The coach will leave Moonee Valley at 8.45 sharp and Tabcorp Park Melton at 9.15 am sharp, returning after the last race.
Bookings are essential and must be made by June 30, to book call Len Baker on 0401 679 745 or John Muller on 03 9743 5507.
