More than 2000 people enjoyed a day of fine country racing and fresh local seafood at Tuncurry Forster Jockey Club's first race meeting of the year.
Held on Saturday, January 16, the Seafood Race Day saw the club pull in its biggest takings in 12 years, according to president Garry McQuillan.
He said it was fantastic to see people out having a good time.
"After the pandemic we had last year, Australians just want to get out of their homes, open up their shoulders and enjoy themselves again," Mr McQuillan said.
"And that's what they did at Tuncurry race course on Saturday."
