These days, Bluff racecourse once the mecca of a number of trainers and even resident jockeys not to mention having regular race dates, only races twice a year. Resident race caller Scott Power, also a Queensland Rail employee said the Bluff-Blackwater Amateur Race Club has now taken over the Blackwater-Lions Race Club date. Racing has always had a strong link with Bluff and over the decades some top horses originated from here. Race club secretary Allie McLaughlin said much was planned for Newmarket Day to cater for families, children and patrons. She said regardless of the promotions was essential that the meeting attracted good nominations, as good fields draw people to the races and the Bluff-Blackwater Amateur Race at NewMarket was no different.
