Kilcoy Gift Postponed – Sep 11 2022

Afternoon Runners…….our good friends at the Kilcoy Turf Club in consultation with the QAL have postponed the Kilcoy Gift to September 11. The track has not recovered from the flooding events with the recent rain.

The program moving forward looks very promising with 6 planned meets in the three months starting on the 21 August:
Ipswich Lightning – 21 August
Mulgowie Gift – 3 September
Kilcoy Gift – 11 September
Somerset Gift – 8 October
Pittsworth Gift – 29 October
Noosa Gift – Mid November


Racing Queensland has advised that people will need to be fully vaccinated in order to attend race meetings from next month.

From December 17, 2021, race meetings conducted in Queensland will become fully vaccinated events, including patrons, employees, racing participants and volunteers, and only those who are fully vaccinated will be permitted to attend.

Venue restrictions will come into effect three hours prior to the first race at any meeting and will conclude two hours after the last.

Non-raceday activities will be determined by each individual club and subject to government requirements as apply to their venue.

Racing Queensland will continue to monitor government announcements and will provide further updates once the detailed directions are released.

At that time, Racing Queensland will be able to assist clubs upon request if any questions arise.
