Hay is a town found in the western part of the Riverina region on the south western side of New South Wales. This town is known for its prosperous and highly productive agricultural district. Situated in between the large cities of Adelaide and Sydney, Hay is considered an important transport node from both a regional and national perspective.
Just like the alot of country towns in Australia, the town of Hay loves sports. Locals support# and participate in a wide variety of sports from football to horse racing. The Hay Racecourse is where all thoroughbred racing takes place. The Hay Racescourse is under the management of the Hay Jockey Club.
The club runs an annual race event every November which is considered the biggest day of the year for the townsfolk of Hay.
All Hay races are considered a professional meeting with a picnic race feel. The setting always involves picnic tables, an undercover betting ring, a barbeque stand, bar facilities, a champagne bar and full TAB facilities. These facilities are available for patrons, club members and their guests. There is also entertainment, made especially for children, available.
Another event that is not to be missed on race days at the Hay Racecourse is 'fashions on the field'. It is one of the things that spectators would like to witness in addition to the race action at the track.
