The possibility of the Young Harness Racing Club becoming part of the Western District Association has been mooted with Young surrendering up to four meetings to the Wagga Club in 2018.

Wagga are in the process of building a new and much bigger facility that will bring the South West and Riverina club up to speed with other tracks that include Bathurst and Goulburn.

Young have, in recent years, received the major support from trainers in the Bathurst area including Peter Bullock, Steve Turnbull, Bernie Hewitt, Lester Hewitt, Ray Davis, John O’Shea, Matt Rue and many other smaller trainers which in itself supports that possible decision.

The loss of meetings is the most serious suggestion.

Young Harness Racing Club will return to the track on November 24 for the Cherry Festival Cup.
