All roads lead to the Yunta Picnic Races

MARK April 28 on your calendar, as you dust off the Akubra and head to Yunta for the 2018 Yunta Picnic Races and Gymkhana.

The day features five races and 23 gymkhana events run in four age groups, with four led events for the under eight year olds to complement established junior events.

It’s a full day of horse action, with the feature event being the 1400m Yunta Cup, with first past the post receiving an impressive Cup and $3000 prize money.

Through generosity of sponsors, the Yunta Racing Club (YRC) will offer more than $12,000 in prizemoney, plus trophies and ribbons for the events.

Once again, except for the prestigious barrel racing which is always hotly contested due to the high prize money, this year’s gymkhana nomination fees have been scrapped.
