Originally designed to fill the gap when Quilpie lost its second thoroughbred meeting over a decade ago, the event has become a much-loved annual occasion, with the main day resembling a conventional race day complete with bookies, Sky Channel and Fashions on the Field.

This year the Pride of the West will be held 28 – 30 September. Further details will be published closer to the date.
