The Wagin Trotting Club’s centenary was celebrated by a large crowd on Sunday. About 500 people gathered at the Wagin Trotting Club to mark 100 years of the organisation, which began hosting meetings in 1922 before becoming an incorporated body. The club holds seven race meetings a year in conjunction with Racing and Wagering WA. Adding to the pageantry of the day was a display of vintage cars provided by members of the Central and Upper Great Southern branch of the Veteran & Classic Car Club of WA. Along with marking a century of on-field action, the contribution made to the club by past president Don Davies was also celebrated. Davies was presented with an award by Roe MLA Peter Rundle in recognition of his 50 years of involvement with the club. “In today’s society it is hard for any club to keep going — sporting and service clubs — so for an organisation to be running events for a hundred years is a celebration for the community,” Wagin Trotting Club co-vice president Sheryl Chilcott said. While the 2022 season has come to a close, the club is looking forward to a return to the track next year with the first meet scheduled for April 6.
