Red Hat Ladies from Doubtless Bay
A bus load of the social group known as "Red Hat Ladies" will be enjoying a day out in the Surfbreak Lounge. This group of ladies over 50, are clearly distinctive as they wear something purple and a red hat! The group has a pretty simple plan - once month to get together for a fun social day out!
The Whangarei bus service will run as per normal with time details to be confirmed on the Saturday prior to the meeting.
The mid-week meeting may only be lower grade races but many are young horses starting their two or three year-old seasons and most are from the bigger stables in the northern region so they become horses to follow over their spring and summer campaigns.
The eight race programme is currently scheduled to commence at 12.57pm and finish at 5.04pm.
