Next Sunday, February 26, the Narrabri Harness Racing Club will host its first race meeting of the year.

A week later, on Sunday, March 5, it will host its second and final meet.

The first meeting will see the Wee Waa Cup contested, as well as heats for big races at the second meeting.

The fields for the first meeting will be released on Wednesday (see next Thursday’s Courier).

The following meeting will showcase the Santos Carnival of Cups, the John Dean Memorial, and the Narrabri Cup.

The fields for that meeting will be listed in The Courier on Thursday, March 2.
