CIARON Maher will be a guest of the Albury Racing Club on Friday, March 8, to launch the Albury Gold Cup carnival.
Maher will address the club’s luncheon at the Commercial Club.
"I believe it’s a great opportunity for anyone with a passion for racing or business to hear from one of Australia’s most exciting trainers," Albury Racing Club chief Steve Hetherton said.
Maher's attendance continues the club’s trend of securing high-profile racing identities for the launch of the cup carnival.
Peter Moody, Lee Freedman, John Messara, Jim Cassidy, Damien Oliver and Tommy Berry have all been guests in recent years.
Maher, 37 shot to racing fame in 2007 when he trained long-shot Tears I Cry to win the $1m Emirate Stakes.
He has since won 10 group one races.
Maher and his training partner David Eustace recently purchased Darren Weir's Forrest Lodge property.
