Canni Creek rescheduled

Buchan and Gelantipy Racing Club members are pleased to announce the Canni Creek races have been rescheduled.
Club treasurer, Robyn Sandy, said club members had only just completed building the new finishing post on Friday, the afternoon prior to the original race date of February 13, only to find out the five-day lockdown of COVID restrictions meant they wouldn’t be running the races.
“We’ll just soldier on,” Mrs Sandy said.
“We want people to know if they had already purchased tickets they are still valid for the new date, and if people want to buy tickets they can do so at the Country Racing website.”  
Canni Creek races will take place on Sunday, March 28.


Nestled in relaxing country environments, picnic racing is the grassroots of Victorian thoroughbred racing.

Essentially non-professional and volunteer community based, picnic racing clubs make an important direct and indirect financial and social benefit to the regional local community.

Attending a day at the picnic races has become a tradition for so many groups, from families and old school mates to community clubs and businesses.

The Picnic Racing circuit provides a chance for trainers and owners to commence and expand their career. For approved riders, picnic racing is an opportunity to advance their skills and experience in the industry.

Don’t be fooled by the laidback atmosphere, each race at a picnic meeting is hotly contested and provides all the thrills of a day at the races.
