We all knew the season had to break but traditionally this has been the Anzac Day weekend, however, the skies opened and participants realised that we are a winter sport!
With a 15 race program, everybody was kept pretty busy.
The usual coursing stalwarts were present with only a few new faces.
Ben Rawlings has started the season off with a bang – 3 winners.
