Coober Pedy OZ Minerals Races

The Coober Pedy OZ Minerals Races will offer AUD25,000 total prize money and trophies!

The Coober Pedy Racing Club was started up in 1969 with the aim of bringing together town and station people - "to make new friendships and renew old ones". Among the names that are associated with the early days of the club are Ian Rankin, Dick Nunn, Ron Gough and Frank Cresp.

From the beginning, the race carnival has been a two-day event. Each year station people arrive in town with their horses and swags in time to meet up with old friends at the Italian Club and to enjoy the hospitality of the town throughout the weekend.

A major sponsor who came on board in recent years is OZ Minerals, and, in consequence, the name of the annual race meeting has been changed to The Coober Pedy OZ Minerals Annual Race Meeting and Gymkhana.
