Santa made a special trip to Bathurst on Monday, landing with his reindeers, and taking a trip around the Bathurst track on the tractor, to the delight of all the kids on course. The kids were treated to bubble wands, zooper doopers, and cheeseburger vouchers from Santa, and headed off again with his reindeers, leaving the kids to their fun on the jumping castle.

It was a magical night of racing, with a long standing 700m track record held by Sand Burner broken by Michael Eberand’s “Ebby Ripper” in a very speedy 40.86 for the Ladbrokes Monthly Medal.

Thanks to everyone who came along and made it a fantastic night, and to the support from all of our sponsors.

The NSW Greyhound Breeders Owners and Trainers Association, and Bathurst Greyhound Club would like to wish all trainers, owners, and patrons a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
