Changes To Club Menangle Feature Race Calendar

Posted on 21 Jul 2023

Club Menangle have hit the refresh button on our iconic Sky Racing Carnival
of Miracles, with a shortened Carnival to take centre stage throughout the
first two weeks of March in 2024 followed by another feature race date
running on the first Saturday in May.

This change sees the Sky Racing Carnival of Miracles shortened from three
weeks to two weeks and commencing two weeks later than past schedules.
The Sky Racing Carnival of Miracles Night One Saturday 2 March 2024, will
feature the Cordina Chicken Farms Chariots of Fire, Miracle Mile Sprint
Qualifiers (Allied Express Sprint and Schweppes Sprint) and Heats of the
NSW Derby.

Night Two of the Sky Racing Carnival of Miracles will see the Garrards
Miracle Mile run a week later than previous years, with the $1 million event
headlining the program on Saturday 9 March 2024. Other races on the card
include the NSW Derby, Ainsworth Australian Light Horse FFA, Hammerhead
Trotters Mile, Shaw & Mason Sapling Stakes, Raith Memorial, Baby Bling
Mares, Condell Park Produce Waratah Final and the Bubba Gump Pest
Control FFA.

Our new feature race night, to be held on Saturday 4 May 2024, will heavily
lean towards a predominately Fillies and Mares programmed race schedule
to coincide with our successful Pacing For Pink month. This race meeting will
feature the Pryde’s Easifeed Queen Elizabeth II Mile, John Gibson Memorial
NSW Oaks, Macarthur Mile Trotting Mares, NSW Trotters Oaks, Allied Express
Pink Bonnet and Tanyia Harris OAM Lady Drivers.

These feature race dates are to move with the change of racing season to
better suit Fillies and Mares that may have been impacted by feature
carnival races run later into the previous year.

Below is the 2024 Carnival of Miracles Two Night Program:
Night One- Saturday 2 March 2024
Cordina Chicken Farms Chariots of Fire $250,000
Schweppes Sprint $100,000
