Last year it rained cats and dogs, but this year the sun shone down on the event and hundreds turned out for the family fun day. There were six pig races, each one sponsored by a local business. Race One was the Datrys Hogwash Hurdle, Race Two, the Porkers Handicap sponsored by Partnership Finance Group, Rod Morrison Gyprock sponsored Race Three, the Squealer’s Handicap, Race Four, Jeff’s Quality Meats was behind the Pickled Pork Plate, Race Five, B & K Landscaping and the Snouts in the Trough Slipper and Race 6 sponsored by Stuart Sinclair from Ray White behind the Tea Gardens Hawks Nest Cup. There was so much enthusiasm on and off the track you could have been forgiven you were at a Randwick Race meet with Winx as the lure. But the big winners were the local community groups, the Hawks Junior Rugby League Club and the Tea Gardens Hawks Nest Surf Club. “Last year we raised $3,000 for the Surf Club, this year we’re hoping to top that,” Club Manager, Warren Gooley told News Of The Area. And top that they did, the day raising $7,000 for the Surf Club. “We’ve expanded the day this year, to include mechanical bull riding, exotic confectionary, face painting and live music,” Warren said. With such a great turnout this year, you’d be a good chance to bet on the Pig Races being back to fly again in Tea Gardens next year.
