Get your backside trackside this October long weekend as the Mungey Picnic Races is on again.

With one of the few dirt racing tracks still left on the NSW country picnics racing scene, Mungery's bush atmosphere will be sure to keep all racing enthusiasts entertained throughout the day.

Set on the banks of the Bogan River 40 kilometres south west of Narromine, whether it's a passion for horse racing, a keen eye for fashion or just catching up with mates, this year promises to be one of the best yet.

For the punter there is a six race program, promising not to be lame, with the first race set to jump at 1pm.

Fashions on the field are back so there's incentive to dust off your frock and iron out your shirts for one of the racing highlights of the year.
