TOWONG CUP: Crowd flocks to race that stops a region

ALMOST 2500 people flocked to Towong on Saturday for its annual cup meeting.

The crowd, up by a couple of hundred on last year, enjoyed a “cracker of a day” at the races, according to club secretary Rohan Whitehead.

“It was a really good day,” Mr Whitehead said.

“We had about 2400 through the gate, the weather was good and everyone had a great time.

“Given our grandstand is out of action at the moment, we were really happy with the crowd.”

Veteran galloper He’s An Angel, trained by Wod- onga’s Brian Cox, took out the feature race.
