A PACKED program will feature at Lin Gordon Paceway on Friday when racing returns for a new season.
The 2018-19 season will kick off for the Leeton Harness Racing Club with eight races scheduled for the event.
Racing will get underway from 1.17pm and entry will be free.
Leeton Harness Racing Club’s Joanne Punch was looking forward to the meeting.
“It will be the first of 11 for our club this season,” she said.
"That’s one more than we usually have, so it should be good.
“Most of the meetings will be held on a fortnightly basis.”
With the meeting to go through until race eight at 5.37pm, the event will be perfect for those looking to get the kids out of the house with school holidays now in full swing.
The packed program includes drivers from across the region, as well as many from Leeton shire.
Punch said there was plenty of talented drivers in the MIA and Riverina at the moment.
“Obviously Blake Jones is right up there … he travels a lot and gets plenty of drives,” she said.
“It’s a big commitment for them.
“We’re very lucky to have so many talented drivers around here. It will be a good afternoon of racing.
Several Leeton shire businesses have also once again jumped on board to assist with sponsoring the race.
