Despite a threatening sky the nine drivers lined up to enjoy 3 races under perfect conditions.


LMTCs two newest drivers Lachlan Symes and Lilah Trewin were made welcome for their first race meeting, and had a successful evening.

New ponies for the season Colour Me Crazy and Jimmy’s Girl took their drivers around safely for their first outing. We welcomed Mystery Nugget back to the track after an absence of many years, but he didn’t miss a beat with his capable young driver on board!


Once again Leeton Show Society provided medallions for all competitors which were most gratefully received by our drivers (and rumour has it that one or two may have been worn to bed that night).
