On behalf of the committee of the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Racing Club, welcome to provincial racing’s premier event – The Round.
It’s amazing how fast our racing season progresses each year and before we know it, it’s that time of year again when we anticipate an influx of both visitors and locals to the track to enjoy the racing and social events The Round has to offer for 2013.
The Round is a Goldfields icon that continues to grow year after year occupying a huge part of our economic and social calendar. The Round and its events are embraced by our entire community. From times past to recent years The Round has produced something extraordinary in the way of exceptional equine performance, fantastic entertainment or personal memories and I would see this year's event as being no different in that respect. It has proven to be a time of the year when just being here is well worth it.
My sincere thanks must go to all our loyal sponsors, supporters and staff of the club, both over The Round and throughout the year. Their support is paramount in keeping the club and the industry throughout the Goldfields region healthy. Local participation in this industry has, and always will be, essential in ensuring we are able to contribute back into the local economy and community by the staging of this wonderful event and season.
Start planning to be in Kalgoorlie-Boulder in September to enjoy the hospitality, excitement and colour of the Greatest Show on Turf and all that the Goldfields region has to offer throughout The Round 2013.
Welcome to you all!
Chairman, Kalgoorlie-Boulder Racing Club.
