The Strathalbyn Racing Club has been named the Most Outstanding Club of the Year at the Thoroughbred Racing Industry Awards and Hall of Fame Dinner. This is in recognition of the club's outstanding 2017/18 season. The club held 14 race meetings across the season to beat a field of 24 clubs to win the award.

After a stellar year on and off the track, the club bettered its performance in all key metrics - including attendances, membership and sponsorship - to ensure 2017/18 was one of the successful years in the club’s 97 year history.

Business Development Manager Kristy Martin said the highly coveted award was recognition for the hard work of the committee and club management over the past 12 months. "To be named the most outstanding club of the year is a huge result for the Strathalbyn Racing Club," Kristy said.

"Earlier this year, the Strathalbyn Cup drew the largest crowd since 2014 - an increase of 21 per cent on previous years, while membership and race day attendance increased by a whopping 25 per cent in 2017-18.” For more information visit: https://www.theracessa.com.au/racing-club/strathalbyn
