MidCoast Council's staff at the 2019 Krambach Club

Horse racing enthusiasts, owners, trainers and Mid Coast Council employees converged on the Bushland Drive Racecourse for the 2019 Krambach Cup.

The sun was shining and the wind was blowing but it didn't stop the spectators from enjoying a day at the races.

Council employees attended the event as part of their annual picnic day, while Krambach Cup supporters filled lines of tables in the Winning Post Function Centre.

Also taking part in the day was the Taree Historic Motor Club, with a line of classic car on display for everyone to enjoy.

Krambach Race Club was formed in 1882 with race meetings held at "Larry's Flat" near Krambach on private land. Racing started with Picnic Christmas meetings but by the turn of the century (1900) it had grown. The Krambach Cup is one of the annual fundraisers for the club, which merged with the Manning Valley Race Club in 2018.
