The Chinchilla Race Club made the decision to abandon their local horse races on December 19 due to an enormous amount of rain received the night prior.

This didn't dampen the spirits of revellers, as hundreds piled through the gates to get on the punt with a schooner in hand for the ProCrew Chinchilla Cup.
