2023 Hewitt Memorial race day:
The Hewitt Memorial race day has become an important day on the Goulburn Club’s harness racing calendar. To be held on the second last Sunday of April, a week before the club’s Carnival of Cups race day, Hewitt Memorial race day was established to honour the memory of Thomas and Angela Hewitt, and recognise their role in cementing the harness sport in Crookwell and the Goulburn region.
The race meeting has now evolved into a Crookwell community event which also memorialises the harness racing contributions of Aubrey Frost and Robert Allport. Further, the event doubles as a fund raiser for the very important charitable works of the Crookwell Community Trust charity which provides emergency funding for those in need in the Upper Lachlan Shire.
