A crowd estimated at more than 2000 people attended Wagga Picnic Races on Saturday afternoon, with the charity event seeing more attendance than last year.
Murrumbidgee Turf Club chief executive Steve Keene credited good weather with boosting the gate numbers for Country Hope's annual fundraising race day.
"It was a really strong crowd, the weather has been great, nice and warm, and the Picnic Club has done a fantastic job promoting the day and it adds to what is already a fantastic spring carnival," he said.
"There have been more than 2000 people here, which is really good growth."
Mr Keene said the crowd had been well behaved.
The race day also offered Fashions on the Field, live music and a raffle of a Peter Brock tribute Commodore.
Wagga Amateur Picnic Race Club president Geoff O'Hare thanked attendees.
"Every year we put this race day on and all the money goes to Country Hope, so it's great to support charity while getting out there and having a bit of fun and a bit of a punt," he said.
