We trust you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Racing is back into full swing at Callaghan Park with some great afternoons of racing thus far. We have battled through some hot meetings but the staff and QRIC were able to ensure the welfare of the horses was a top priority. Congratulations to all involved.

Update on lift at Callaghan Park
We would like to make mention of the ongoing issue we are having with our lift into our upstairs venues. Unfortunately the incorrect replacement motherboard was sent and we are now waiting on another one to be sent from China. We do apologise for the inconvenience and we will keep our members informed of any further delays.
We look forward to another exciting year of racing at Callaghan Park and take the opportunity to thank our members for their ongoing support of the local racing industry and acknowledge the invaluable contribution our members make to the continued success of the Rockhampton Jockey Club.
