Wimmera racing enthusiasts braved the heat on Sunday as part of the town’s Australia Day long-weekend celebrations. Austy Coffey’s six-year-old gelding Vianden, with Harry Coffey in the saddle and a dominating force on this season’s country cup circuit, won the feature event from five other runners. The Cup meeting finished off a big weekend for Great Western with the inaugural Under The Pines Music Festival kicking things off on Friday. Saturday festivities included a street party, buskers and Seppelt hosted an open-air cinema on Saturday night. Pictures: PAUL CARRACHER
