Roma State College Footy and Fillies Day (TAB listed)

29 July 2017

The Annual FOOTY AND FILLIES raceday for the Roma State College. The third and final in the Winter Carnival series for the Roma Turf Club.

All the big boys have had a run at Bassett Park, now it’s time for the little fellas.  The lush paddock in the middle of the track will be a delight to the under 11s before the racing begins.

This day will be a 6 event program of racing on Sky Channel, one of the club’s 2 TAB meetings, and the final in the ROADS TO ROMA SERIES.

This is the day when the bonuses and the big prize money will be decided so expect some fierce competition. On the track and in the sandpit, where the mums and dads will be showcasing sand castle skills.

 Lots of fun for the kids throughout the afternoon in aid of the school P&C.

Footy and Racing, its a Thing in Roma.

After the races, NED and THE KELLYs, special treat for the whole family
