Blue Pearl Classic to create history

A blockbuster Blue Pearl Classic race will headline the upcoming trots family race day with the event a first for the region.

Spearheaded by Tony Kiel, the Swan Hill Trotting Club event is set to attract female drivers from the state in an attempt to show young girls they can do it if they work hard in the inaugural Blue Pearl Classic — a woman-only race.

Kiel was excited to see caller Victoria Shaw participate on the day in Swan Hill, on January 18.

With a keen interest in organising this event, Kiel says it was great it is happening and looked forward to the race.

"It is something which hasn't been done before in the region. It will be a good event, I am excited," he said.
