The biggest day on the Macleay's social calendar is here!
The 2019 Kempsey Cup is set to be a beautiful sunny day and thousands are expected to make the trip to the race track today.
Many businesses in Kempsey will close for the local half-day holiday, where the emphasis is as much about off track as it is on.
There are three local horses contesting for the Kempsey Cup, which will jump at 4.55pm today.
Barry Ratcliff will attempt to claim the prize for the first time in 18 attempts while Rocky and Daniel Simonetta are hopeful they will win it on their first try.
