Murwillumbah Race Day Moves To Friday August 25th

Jul 28, 2017

THE Murwillumbah Cup has been transferred to August 25 at the Tweed River Jockey Club.

General manager Brian Charman said it was a major coup for the club to have the race day transferred from a Sunday to a Friday afternoon.

The Murwillumbah Cup will be the first of the triple headers of Cup meetings on the Northern Rivers with Ballina and Lismore to follow in September.

The Tweed Club has also secured a new major sponsorship deal with the Riverview Hotel in Murwillumbah.

"It is a terrific result for racing here at Murwillumbah and also for the racing industry," Charman said.

"I am excited to announce the major sponsor of the Murwillumbah Cup of 2017 as the Riverview Hotel. The club is very proud to have this association and thank the new owners of the Riverview Hotel, John and Michael Schlederer, for their support.

"In all my years as chairman of the club we have appreciated the support of all the local businesses and it is great news for the club and the town that we have been able to secure a new local sponsor for the Murwillumbah Cup and we look forward to a long great working relationship."
