Harness Racing a growing sport in Bathurst

Harness racingĀ is spreading its roots in Bathurst with developments starting on brand new facilities in the town.

Harness Racing NSW is confident the town will lead the way, as it embarks on investments in regional locations and has allocated 25 per cent of its funds to build the facilities.

Local politicians, owners and trainers, and local trotting club officials marked the beginning of the project yesterday at an official ceremony held at the site on College Road.

The 7.5 million dollar track, clubhouse and associated facilities aims to breathe life into an ailing sport and will benefit the town by generating up to 22 new jobs, bringing in an extra 1 million dollars in household income.

The track is expected to be finished by September next year.
