Reconnecting at the Races
Horse racing has been held at Dederang since 1865, but Saturday’s picnic races is perhaps the most keenly anticipated yet.
With COVID impacting sport and community events, President of Dederang Race Club Marcus Goonan says the Kiewa River Valley community is particularly looking forward to reconnecting.
“It’s really highlighted this year by the fact that the football season didn’t get off the ground and the cricket season has certainly been affected,” Marcus told Kylie and Kev.
“Sport is a really big thing in some of these smaller country communities. The Recreation Reserve supports seven different sporting clubs, which is really significant for a small town like ourselves for the community and connection.”
