Marble Bar Amateur Race Club
The Marble Bar Amateur Race Club has been host to this famous annual event since 1893 and attracts an ever increasing crowd of between 2000-3000 people.
With a track surrounded by spinifex, red hills and a dusty two up ring the Pilbara comes together with miners, town folk, families, travellers from across the world and all the crew from Pilbara Stations near and far.
The early days of racing were supported by district bred horses and a two day meeting was held until the early 70's when professional jockeys and registered race horses came into being.
Over the years Marble Bar has been seen as a very successful 'picnic race' day, it is an event simply not to be missed!
