Hundreds of punters headed to the Tamworth Jockey Club on Sunday for one of the city's richest race days.
Almost $400,000 was up for grabs across the eight-race card including $150,000 in the H&NWRA Country Championships Qualifier.
And there was plenty of people on track early on to witness Tamworth trainer Cody Morgan claim an early race-to-race double.
Tamworth Jockey Club administrator David Jewell was busy early on but was happy with how things were looking at the start of the day.
"It looks a fantastic crowd," Jewell said.
"We've certainly got a beautiful day for it. Weather's perfect, track's in great condition, everyone's here and there's terrific fields all day as well.
"It's lovely to see the cars rolling in and lots of people with a smile on their face."
Over 600 tickets were sold beforehand and Jewell said numbers through the gates sat at roughly 1200 by the end of the day.
The peak number of people on track were there just before 5pm to watch the Country Championships Qualifier.
TJC's next big meeting is on Friday, April 23 with the Tamworth Cup.
Jewell hoped Tamworth Cup day would be "bigger and better" than Sunday's meeting.
