The Annabelle Cleeland Euroa Cup has taken place in wet and wild conditions with Ceardai running out to be the clear winner on a heavy track.
Ms Cleeland said it was pleasing to have events like the Euroa Cup back on track after a difficult for years.
“It’s great to see so many people out and about and enjoying this great community event despite the conditions,” Ms Cleeland said.
“The Benalla Racing Club has supported the hosting of the Euroa Cup for a long time and the Euroa community definitely reciprocates that support.
“A hearty congratulations to everyone who picked a winner and all involved for persevering through the constant rain.”
Ms Cleeland encouraged locals to support upcoming Benalla Racing Club meets and support regional businesses.
“The Benalla Racing Club has a big February ahead with race days on February 14 and 27,” Ms Cleeland said.
“Central Victoria is the home of thoroughbred breeding and racing. We’re lucky to have regular meets and quality facilities in our own backyard.
“Whether it be racing, a market or dining out I encourage everyone in our region to explore what the North-East and Central Victoria have to offer and support our local economies.”
