race day saved
ALTHOUGH the future of
the Tennant Creek Turf Club
looked doubtful, a group of
punters has come to the res-
cue to ensure the annual races
can go ahead.
The date has been booked in for
Saturday 19 May and the new, albeit
makeshift, committee is already hard
The Two Cup Race Day will offer
a six races on the day, including the
Carlton Mid Tennant Creek Cup and
the Denis Staunton Memorial St
Other favourites such as the sprint
races and fashions of the field compe-
tition will be happening and there will
be full TAB services on site.
Brian Coleman, Mike Nash, Liam
McKelvey, Greg Targett and others
have all offered to chip in and help
make the day a success.

horse, Ash Grey, won the Alice
Springs Cup last weekend) Skimbo
(pictured) has also offered to give the
locals in his real home town a hand.

Alice Springs after expanding his

Creek next weekend but after four
consecutive wins he reckons the five-

“Who knows though, some time
down the track, Ash Grey might
just be running in Tennant Creek,”
“He’s definitely a beautiful horse
and it’s the best-ever feeling to have
him win the Alice Springs Cup.”
