NSW Country and Picnic Racing is a dedicated digital platform that shares breaking news, stories and updates for the New South Wales thoroughbred racing industry.

The team at NSW Country and Picnic Racing supports the progress and development of community and picnic race clubs and their meetings, as we strongly believe that country race meetings are the grassroots of all racing in NSW and Australia, with the industry relying upon the horses, jockeys and trainers predominantly raised in these regions.

Founder and Editor, Jeff Hanson, will endeavour to share stories from the NSW racing industry in a professional and supportive manner, and he wants readers to enjoy and engage with content and offer any feedback, both good or bad, so his team can improve the website and the flow of content being distributed to community and picnic racing participants and supporters.

Jeff is a country-born and bred racing fanatic, having grown up in the little town of Mendooran before settling in Tumut as a Sports and Racing Editor.

A fashions on the field tragic, racehorse owner and supporter of all things sports and racing, Jeff loves nothing better than getting to race meetings all over the country.


NSW Country and Picnic Racing are always looking to work with associations, race clubs and participants to promote the sport of thoroughbred racing in NSW.
