LOCATION

THE RACE THAT STOPS... Quindanning

Steeped in history and legend, the Quinny Races were originally founded in 1919 with locals taking their horse and carts down for an afternoon of entertainment; known then as the "Brumby Races."

 

Disbanding for a few decades after WWII, the Quindanning Races were resurrected one New Years day in 1979 by two mates arguing over the superiority of their respective horses. The bet was made and the wager set ($100)... with word soon getting out, crowds of over 800 people began to gather to bear witness. 

 

Whatever the result, it's safe to say that the legacy of the winning horse pales in comparison to the beloved community event that resulted because of it.
