The Warwick Turf Club’s annual Disability Awareness Race Day has again exceeded expectations, marking yet another milestone in its journey of growth and community impact.

Held on Thursday 9 May, the event showcased the best of racing while fostering inclusivity and support for individuals with disabilities.

With a staggering 98 horses entering the gates to participate in nine thrilling races, and 43 jockeys partnering with them, the event was a true testament to the spirit of competition and camaraderie.

Trainers, strappers, and connections from near and far converged at the Warwick Turf Club, adding to the excitement and energy of the day.

The crowd, consisting of support groups, carers, patrons and families, lent an atmosphere of unity and solidarity. Their presence underscored the significance of the event in bringing together diverse communities to celebrate diversity and inclusion in sport.

The Warwick Turf Club is eager to build on this year’s achievements and continue to elevate the Disability Awareness Race Day in 2025.

Plans are already underway to expand the event and create an even more memorable experience for participants, spectators, and supporters alike.

As the curtain falls on another successful Disability Awareness Race Day, the Warwick Turf Club extends its heartfelt gratitude to everyone who contributed to its success, reaffirming its commitment to fostering inclusivity and accessibility in the world of racing.
