Warragul Harness Racing Club has launched Club 55, an exciting promotion aimed at businesses.

For a cost of $55 including GST, businesses or groups can become corporate members of the club.

They receive an industry Trots Card, which gives the holder free entry to all trotting meetings in Victoria, plus 55 free entry passes for Warragul meetings, which can be handed out to staff, clients etc.

All sponsors will be publicly acknowledged by the club, and all participants will go into a draw for an special sponsorship and entertainment package at next year’s Warragul Cup meeting on Easter Sunday, valued at $750.

Tickets for Club 55 are available by calling the Warragul HRC on (03) 5622 2008.

Friday, October 25th sees the return of Gippsland based White Room Live music, and the music night will link up with Warragul Harness Racing Club for the first time.

Held at the Danny’s the Venue function rooms, the night will feature over 20 musicians from Gippsland and beyond, with something for everyone’s musical tastes.

A bar service will operate (no BYO) and the dance floor will also be available.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children under 16. BYO nibbles, tea and coffee will be provided.

Bookings for tables are encouraged and can be made by calling Des on 0419 588 528 or email

The White Room Live crew are looking forward to running their show at Danny’s, with its quality sound system and spacious surrounds. Depending on the success of this night, other music nights may be programmed by White Room Live and the Harness Racing Club next year.

The Gippsland Harness Training Centre has experienced a surge in interest in recent times.

There are currently 15 full-time students enrolled at the Centre, with another 10 part-time students also participating.

At present the Centre has four horses in work, with one currently racing. They hope to have three horses at the races in time for the season opening meeting at Warragul on Monday, December 2.

Both Community College Gippsland, which oversees the GHTC course, and the Warragul Harness Racing Club, are looking forward to working closer together in the times ahead for the benefit of racing and training locally.

Warragul and District Light Harness Club, which does a great deal to promote the sport of trotting in the local area, will stage their Cup Day Carnival at the harness racing track on Melbourne Cup Day.

There will be children’s rides and activities, market stalls, food and drink and a display by the Warragul Little Athletics kids among many attractions on what is a great family friendly day.

The event was staged for the first time last year and was a great success.

The Cup Day Carnival will run from 11am to 3pm, just in time for that other big event on the day.
