Everything's lining up for a great Poverty Bay Turf Club Summer Races day

Everything is lining up for a great day at the Poverty Bay Turf Club’s Summer Races at the Makaraka track on Sunday. Up to 130 horses will be racing from 30 different trainers including from the powerful Rogerson, Myers and Mannings stables.

“The Poverty Bay Cup is the big race of the day with a $30,000 purse and we have had to extend from eight to nine races because there has been so many acceptances,” said president Alan Davidson.

The track was in excellent condition.

“This little bit of rain is really benefiting it and we have got the Number One race caller George Simon coming too.”

Leading jockeys including South Island based Chris Johnson and Rory Hutchings will be riding on Sunday.

Even the weather looks like it will come to the party with a Metservice forecast predicting mostly fine weather with possible showers.

The fields will be on the racing pages in tomorrow’s Gisborne Herald.
