The Michael Hackett Road to Recovery races at Parkes in focus

The Parkes Jockey Club hosted its annual August race meeting on Saturday, August 17, which attracted a great crowd during the beautiful weather conditions.

The event was renamed the "Michael Hackett Road to Recovery" meeting to raise donations and support Parkes jockey Michael Hackett who suffered a major fall at the Tomingley Picnic Races in April.

Here are some of the scenes our photographer Jenny Kingham captured on the day.
