Echuca Harness Racing Club will hold its Easter meeting on Sunday.

Echuca Harness Racing Club secretary Hope Gamble said the event was one of its most exciting on the calendar.

“Our 2018 Echuca Easter Sunday Race Meeting is one of the highlights of our racing calendar, offering a relaxing way to explore our historic town and to enjoy country racing,” Gamble said.

With visitors coming into the region for the Easter long weekend, the club hopes to see a lot of new faces joining the local crowds for the event.

“We hope Echuca residents and holidaymakers can join us on Easter Sunday to celebrate the holiday, enjoy some quality racing and entertainment, all within the beautiful surrounds of the Murray River.”

The event has been improved this season with a $14,000 package of funding.

With $8000 of funding from the club, $6000 has been contributed by the State Government.

Member for Northern Victoria Mark Gepp said the government was proud to support the race meeting for the second year running.

‘‘It helps draw tourists to the region and support local jobs,” he said.

‘‘The Easter break provides holidaymakers and the community with an excellent opportunity to experience country harness racing in a relaxed, family-friendly environment.”
