This week... From the editor This coming Monday marks another Remembrance Day. I’ve always had a deep respect for the Anzacs. Both of my grandfathers fought in World War II and, like many, they seldom talked about what they went through. However, one story particularly stood out to me. My maternal grandfather was wandering around the jungle delirious with Dengue fever and busily swatted away what he thought were insects buzzing past his ears. He later found out that those insects were, in fact, bullets from the Japanese flying past. Though I was just a child when I heard this story, it rammed home the fragility of life, as well as the bravery and sacrifice of our Anzacs. My grandfather lost his best mate, and countless other comrades but, thankfully, he survived the war and went on to live until the age of 83. In April, I completed the 96-kilometre Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea with two school friends, and we paid our respects along the way. I thought of my grandfathers and, of course, the other diggers throughout the trek. The constant threat of being shot, the treacherous conditions, and a lack of provisions – being there in the jungle and imagining what they were up against heightened my admiration even further. Lest we Forget. - Ben Murphy

news Visual illumination to remember the fallen Newcastle’s Fort Scratchley Historical Society will remember the fallen through a new visual illumination on the fort’s walls. Titled Lest We Forget: A Digger’s View, it is set to screen images from the 35th Battalion, known as Newcastle’s Own, as well as diggers from the Hunter Valley. The visual illumination aims to showcase the intensity of war to the community to commemorate this year’s Remembrance Day (Monday 11 November). Fort Scratchley Historical Society member Karen Smith said the soldiers in the photos were present on the battlefield. “[They] were there, they fought, they died in battle, and they left loved ones behind,” she said. “There wasn’t a family in Australia that wasn’t affected in

some way in that they lost a father, a son, a brother, a fiancé or a friend.” At 11am on 11 November 1918, the guns on the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare. The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month has attained a special significance in the postwar years. Apart from the illumination, the historical society will host a series of events, including a screening of short film Fort Scratchley: Through the Years, to mark the occasion. There will also be a Banner of Remembrance, where you can purchase a poppy for a gold coin donation and write a message to a digger to express your gratitude. Ms Smith said it was important that Australians remember and

honour the fallen and the effects the war had on families and how they carried through generations. “We are free from conflict and live in harmony,” she said. “This is what [the soldiers] believed they were fighting for and we should always think about the fact that, in some instances, if it wasn’t for their sense of duty and their self-sacrifice, we probably wouldn’t be experiencing the same sorts of freedoms we have now. “We should be striving not to ever become involved again [in war] like that.” The visual illumination will be screened on Sunday 10 November from 7.30pm to 9pm at the Fort Scratchley lawn.

news Preparation is key this fire season The bushfire season has started with a bang. NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) crews brought a blaze at Crestwood-Lake Cathie, in Port Macquarie, under control on the weekend. It had roared for seven days, burning 2,880 hectares of bushland and spreading smoke haze across the Hunter Region. Crews also dealt with three fires within the region - at Martinsville, Kearsley and Ferodale late last month. NSW RFS Hunter Valley District Manager, Superintendent Paul Best, says being prepared this season is key. “We have a long and protracted fire season ahead,” he says. “Given the dry conditions, people should be learning lessons from the fires we’ve already had this season and taking time to prepare their properties before a fire starts.” According to Mr Best, preparing your property for the fire season is easier than many people may think. “[It is] things like cleaning your gutters, mowing your lawns and keeping grass trimmed

around the property,” he says. “Cut back trees that overhang the buildings and have a hose long enough to reach around your entire home. “These are simple things you could do this weekend to help prepare your home for bushfires.” According to the RFS, there are four simple steps to create a bushfire survival plan. These include discussing what to do if a bushfire threatens your property; preparing your home for the season; knowing and understanding the bushfire alert levels; and staying up-to-date by keeping all bushfire information numbers, websites and apps. “If a fire starts near your home, you should stay up-to-date by visiting the RFS website, downloading the fires near me app and listening to local radio,” Mr Best adds. “For some fires you may receive a text message or phone call and you should follow the advice of that call or text.” Meanwhile, Northern NSW communities that have been affected by bushfires will now be able

to clean up faster following the introduction of a $7.2 million state and federal recovery package. NSW Minister for Police and Emergency Services, David Elliott MP, says it will ensure that councils have the capacity to continue the important task of managing waste, and minimise disruption to the community. “This funding will enhance the ability of Northern NSW councils to safely receive and dispose of potentially hazardous materials from the fire-affected properties,” he says.

The Law Office of Conrad Curry advertising moment

Experts to host forum for affected women The Law Office of Conrad Curry will host a Surviving Birth Trauma forum for affected women in the Maitland area this month. Three legal experts – Senior Associate Jane Bulter, Associate Amanda Robinson and Barrister Belinda Epstein – will provide information about maternal and infant birth trauma and delve into the legal rights for fi nancial redress available for physical and psychiatric/psychological trauma. During the forum, Ms Bulter will speak about the landmark UK decision of Montgomery v Lanarkshire Health Board, which involved a birth that was complicated by shoulder dystocia. Unfortunately, the baby was deprived of oxygen and he was later diagnosed with cerebral palsy. The mother had expressed her concerns to her medical team about whether she was capable of giving birth, but she was not warned about the risk of shoulder dystocia and she was not offered an elective caesarean.

The Law Office of Conrad Curry Senior Associate Health Lawyer Jane Bulter and Associate Amanda Robinson.

It was held that if Mrs Montgomery had been warned of the risk of shoulder dystocia, she would have chosen to give birth by caesarean section. “We are committed to assisting women in the Hunter Region who may have suffered a traumatic childbirth experience to fi nd out their legal rights and whether they can access fi nancial compensation,” Ms Bulter said. “The event’s focus will be on the woman as a mother; we’ll look at pelvic floor injuries, trauma-related and mental health injuries, and injuries to the child. “Birth trauma can be physical and emotional and can be long-lasting.” The trio will be joined at the forum by two clinical experts. One is Hunter Pelvic Clinic’s Principal/ Practice Owner Caroline Cooper, who has proven experience in treating women with recovery after delivery, as well as a range of other women’s health issues, including pelvic

pain, incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. The other speaker will be Nurse Educator Karen Noble. The forum will take place on Wednesday 13 November at Easts Bowling Club (Banks Street, East Maitland). Information sessions at 10am and 6pm, with one-on-one consultations throughout the day.

news Lions on the move Lions clubs hope to collectively walk Australia’s 25,800-kilometre circumference. An inaugural Lap the Map event on Sunday 17 November will see local Lions branches share videos and images in support of World Diabetes Day. Lions District 201N3 Diabetes Coordinator Diana Stewart said that, together, the clubs aimed to lap Australia. “This fun community event has two purposes – to raise awareness of diabetes and to promote a healthy lifestyle,” she said. Around 1.7 million people within Australia have diabetes and 283 people are diagnosed every day. According to Diabetes Australia, it is estimated that half a million Australians are unaware they are living with the disease. “You can have type two diabetes

without being aware,” Ms Stewart said. Lions is encouraging people to have regular checks because early diagnosis and treatment can reduce the risk of diabetes-related complications, including diseases that can affect the heart, eyes and kidneys. Locally, Valentine Lions Club has organised a big event. On the Sunday, its Lap the Map will start from Valentine Hydrotherapy Pool on St Johns Drive in Croudace Bay and loop around to Thomas Halton Park. The walk will occur between 7.30am and 9.30am to beat the heat; the weather will not cancel the event. Anyone is welcome to join them during the walk. Entry to the event is $5, which includes a bottle of water, barbecue, and a certificate of

During the walk, the Valentine Lions Club members will hand out the Australian type two diabetes assessment pamphlets to help people get informed. “If you can’t organise [or attend] a big event, go to the gym or walk up and down a pool to bring awareness to this issue,” Ms Stewart added. During the week before the

walk, if you record your efforts – no matter how small – and share them with your local Lions club, they can then be added to the national tally.

cover story Festival celebrates camp’s dual anniversaries “My mother burst into tears when she saw that. “She said to my father: ‘What have we got ourselves into?’” An estimated 100,000 migrants from more than 17 countries passed through the camp between 1949 and 1960. One area was widely known as ‘Chocolate City’ due to the brown-coloured oiled timber buildings, while other parts were called ‘Silver City’ because of the corrugated iron huts. Upon arriving at the camp, Mr Lupish spoke no English and was on constant alert after hearing tales of Australia’s dangerous wildlife. “When we were in Germany, we were told that the place was Bisho gate S treet full pof venomous snakes and

Vitaly (Victor) Lupish and his family packed four wooden suitcases into a horse and cart and fled as the Russian military advanced into Belarus during World War II. They spent years living in Germany before arriving in the Hunter Region aboard the first migrant ship to Newcastle, the MV Fairsea, which carried a total of 1,896 people, on 19 August 1949. Mr Lupish and his family were then transported to the Greta Migrant Camp, near Maitland. “We lived in camps – in huts – in Germany, and, when we arrived [in Australia], we thought we’d be living in houses,” he told Newcastle Weekly. “Not so – we were back in a camp.


spiders and that there were forests full of them,” he said. “So, for the next six months at least, I very cautiously wandered into the bush at Greta and was on the lookout for a snake. “Outside ‘Chocolate City’ was the well-known hill, Mount Molly Morgan, which we used to climb as kids – always keeping an eye out for snakes of course.” Mr Lupish eventually left the camp in early 1951 and moved into an old miners’ cottage at Wallsend. However, he still made regular trips back to Greta. “I kept going to the camp on weekends because I had a connection there,” he said. “At first it was every weekend, then it became every second weekend – I was involved in the Orthodox church there.” Mr Lupish went on to gain an engineering certificate and worked for BHP.

He is also a life member of the Hunter Multicultural Communities (HMC), formerly known as the Ethnic Communities Council. Mr Lupish will now attend a 70th anniversary celebration of the Greta Migrant Camp at Camp Road, Greta, this weekend. The Silky Oak Festival, which takes place on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 November, is being hosted by the Central Hunter Business Chamber and HMC. It will double as a celebration of the 80th anniversary of the Greta Army Camp. The site was acquired by the Australian Army on 7 November 1939 and became one of the largest training camps in the country. After the war, much of the field training areas were returned to open grazing land. However, the camp still played a part in training the British Commonwealth Occupation Force

(BCOF). These troops were among the forces that served to maintain control of the Japanese under US General Douglas MacArthur. In 1949, the camp was transferred to the Department of Immigration; the army took control back in 1962; and the site and buildings were sold in 1980. The Silky Oak Festival will be packed with food, culture, a kid’s zone, military vehicle displays, migrant demonstrations, and music from Scottish Pipe Bands. It is set to start with a full military parade by the Royal Australian Navy Band, as well as Defence Force personnel, veterans, and other dignitaries. The Governor-General of Australia, David Hurley, will provide the opening address, while Prime Minister Scott Morrison wrote of his support for the event. Gates open at 8.30am on both days and will close at 5.30pm on

provide freedom of movement in open water. The $4,400 three-wheeled Mobichair – the first of its kind in Lake Macquarie – will be stored in the baths’ new amenity building, with visitors simply required to hose it

“Council recommends two carers should be on hand at all times to assist and supervise while the chair is in use. “Safety is, of course, our number one priority and, with the baths unpatrolled, we want to ensure the Mobi-chair is used correctly.” The device will be accessible to anyone with a Master Locksmiths Access Key (MLAK), which is provided by the council to people with disability. Signage in the chair’s storage shed provides detailed instructions outlining its use in and out of the water.

A harness and flotation devices attached to the chair mean users gently recline and gradually begin to float as they enter the water. “It’s great that something like this is available for people in a wheelchair,” Ms Blair says. “It adds to their inclusion in the community and improves their quality of life.” Lake Macquarie City Council’s Manager Community Partnerships, Andrew Bryant, says its Disability Inclusion Action Plan identified the need to improve beach and waterway access for all abilities. “This new chair goes some way towards addressing that need,” he says. “It’s an ideal piece of equipment for the baths access ramp, which opened last year as part of a wider upgrade to the site.

news Inquiry into fast rail options A new fast rail service “could make an enormous difference to the Hunter,” according to Hunter Business Chamber Chief Executive Bob Hawes. The Federal Government’s House of Representatives Standing Committee on Infrastructure, Transport and Cities has launched a parliamentary inquiry into options for financing a faster rail. The committee will consider possibilities for the 11 fast rail corridors identified in the government’s Faster Rail Plan, including a Newcastle to Sydney route. Mr Hawes believes a faster rail is a realistic and achievable objective that will increase the flow of commuter traffic in both directions. “Reducing the journey time will make it easier for people living here who need to travel to Sydney for

business, but it’s not about making the Hunter a dormitory for people who want to work in Sydney,” he says. “Greater connectivity and faster travel time will also encourage investors to bring their businesses and staff here, to take advantage of lower property and rental prices, the positive business environment, and lifestyle opportunities.” Former Prime Minister Paul Keating spoke out in support of the project last week, stating the economy needed a government-led infrastructure spending boost that included a fast rail line between Newcastle and Sydney. He believed the fast line could alleviate the housing pressures existing within Sydney and would deliver both social and economic benefits. Committee Chair, Mr John

Alexander OAM MP, also claims fast rail connections between capital cities and regional centres will strengthen economic and social ties and connect people to housing, jobs, and services. Work is underway to assess the requirements of the identified fast rail corridors, and the NSW Government’s Fast Rail Strategy is due for completion before the end of the year. Mr Alexander has emphasised that innovative funding models utilised in Australia and around the world need to be considered for the rail projects. The committee has invited organisations and interested persons to make a submission, addressing the terms of reference. Submissions will be collected until Friday 6 December. - Elizabeth Symington

news Homegrown program goes statewide A groundbreaking girls empowerment program will be rolled out across the state to benefit fathers and their daughters. The state government and the University of Newcastle (UoN) officially launched a $2.4 million partnership to deliver Daughters and Dads Active and Empowered last week. The program targets fathers as the agents of change to improve their daughters’ physical activity levels, sport skills, and social-emotional wellbeing. It was the brainchild of UoN’s renowned physical activity researcher, Professor Phil Morgan, and his team, along with support from the Hunter Medical Research Institute. Professor Morgan said the partnership would make a real difference. “There was a strong rationale to target daughters and dads,” he told Newcastle Weekly. “We developed and evaluated a program and it had such great results. “So, it would be disappointing if the program was not made available to more families. “On the back of really strong evidence, the

government has made a considerable investment to make this available to families across NSW. “This partnership will allow us to make a difference to communities on a much larger scale.” The NSW Office of Sport and UoN will deliver the program as part of the government’s women in sport strategy, Her Sport Her Way. Launched in August, it features 29 initiatives that aim to reduce barriers to participation and promote inclusion for women and girls. Following the initial success of Daughters and Dads Active and Empowered, Sport England announced in December 2018 it would award a Women in Sport organisation with a (AU) $1 million grant over three years. This will help it to deliver the program in partnership with the Fatherhood Institute, English Championship club Fulham FC, and the English Football League Trust. Professor Morgan said he was excited about the program’s potential to grow even further. “I think it’s really exciting that a homegrown product from Newcastle is now going to be rolled out in NSW,” he said.

“We also have plans for a whole range of major sports to develop adaptations of the Daughters and Dads program for specific sports. “So, a homegrown product that could be on the national and international stage is very rewarding, exciting, and satisfying.” Visit sport.nsw.gov.au/ourwork/womenin-sport for more about the initiative or the Daughters and Dads Active and Empowered program. - Ben Murphy

Jets search for first win Newcastle will be on the hunt for its first win of the A-League campaign against defending premiers Perth Glory at McDonald Jones Stadium this weekend. Following a bye in round one, the Jets went on to draw 1-all with Central Coast before suffering backto-back defeats to Adelaide United and Sydney FC. The Sky Blues proved too strong at Leichhardt Oval in round four, claiming a dominant 4-1 win to leave Newcastle in second last position. Sydney FC striker Milos Ninkovic opened the scoring with just six minutes played and, despite the early setback, the Jets responded immediately as Matt Millar levelled proceedings. However, Sydney took the lead again before halftime when Rhyan

Former prisoner’s book penned behind bars When Newcastle’s Damien Linnane was sentenced to 10 months in prison, he wanted to use his time behind bars to study. A former Australian soldier, Linnane was locked away in late 2015 for a series of crimes, which included fi rebombing the home of a person accused of sexually assaulting a family member. The crimes were described by the sentencing magistrate as vigilante justice. Just a few days into his prison sentence, Linnane discovered he wasn’t allowed any education tools or therapy, while he was also considered too low risk for rehabilitation programs. There was no internet access and hardly any computer time. “I thought: ‘What am I going to do for 10 months?’” Linnane tells Newcastle Weekly. “All I had was a paper and pen, so I started writing out ideas.”

Linnane spent the fi rst five months writing a crime thriller novel and, during the second half of his sentence, taught himself to draw. His novel, Scarred, has since been signed to a Melbourne-based publisher. He will now host a joint book launch and art exhibition on Friday 15 November at Hudson Street Hum, Hamilton, from 6pm to 8pm. “I never thought I’d write a book or be an artist, but I decided to view prison as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to develop new skills, rather than as a punishment,” he says. “Scarred is about a young man with undiagnosed autism, which really affects his thought patterns. “My autism wasn’t diagnosed until I was 25 years old, so I know what that was like. “I always found it hard to study or concentrate at school.”

Since he left prison, Linnane has been outspoken in his belief that the system needs to change in order to prevent reoffending. In 2016, a state government-led review saw the introduction of a Better Prisons program, which was designed to improve standards that support rehabilitation and reduce the likelihood of inmates reoffending upon release. It also rolled out a new prison education model, with inmates completing literacy and numeracy qualification increasing by 43% between 2015-16 and 2017-18. However, only four correctional facilities offer Intensive Learning Centres to cater for inmates with the highest level of basic education needs. Linnane continues to lobby for better programs for prisoners. Scarred will be officially released on Thursday 28 November. - Ben Murphy

Printmakers’ put stamp on workshop’s history The Newcastle Printmakers Workshop will stamp four decades of existence through a special exhibition this month. The 40/40 exhibition will showcase 40 artists and 40 years through 40 different prints. Each artist was allocated a year between 1979 and 2019 and produced a print that explored the occurrences of that year. All the prints have been created by members of the workshop, with three of the founding members also participating in the exhibition. Printmaking involves transferring images from a matrix or template onto another surface, like fabric or stone. Techniques include lithography, screen printing, and lino and wood cutting.

Holidays should be easy! Avoid traffic delays. With the world just a connection away, Newcastle Airport is the smarter way to start your travel.

The Newcastle Printmakers Workshop is an open access workshop that boasts a large array of equipment, including two etching presses, a lithography press, dark room, and light box. “One of the challenges of any printmaking workshop is to get across the idea of what print is because people can be confused especially with being in the digital age now, a print is something that comes off a printer but that’s not what we do here,” member Catherine Tempest said. The prints created at the workshop are original hand pulled artworks. The exhibition will take place from 8 to 24 November at Art Systems Wickham. The official opening occurs on 9 November

Hints for Bonsai lovers I love bonsai. When I checked the Oxford Dictionary’s meaning of a bonsai plant, it simply stated: an artificially dwarf potted tree or shrub. Did readers notice I didn't Google? I fi nd the dictionary gives more precise answers and, in the plant world, species are different all over the globe and are often named differently. Back to bonsai. If it only were so simple – my personal venture into growing bonsai for pleasure and as a challenge was abruptly brought to a halt by a week of 38 to 40-degree temperatures. What did I do? It only takes one day in that kind of neglect to end their life span. Also, fertilising is of premium importance, as well as a slow release food. They also require a foliant fertiliser, such as Flourish,

once a fortnight, making it weaker than normal solutions. According to Japanese teaching, the word bonsai means planted in a container. The Western world took some time to discover what the Chinese and Japanese tree lovers have known for centuries – that there is a way to dwarf and train giant forest trees, so they grow gracefully and in perfect health, whilst never exceeding a small height. Keeping a living plant alive in a restricted container is only the most elementary introduction to the art of bonsai. To create a real bonsai you prune, coax and train the tree into a beautiful but natural shape. A couple of hints: bonsai must be grown in containers that will control the dwarfi ng process – obviously shallow pots restrict root growth. Most importantly, bonsai are not house plants, they can be

THIS WEEK taken inside for brief periods. If you wish to cultivate bonsai, I’d suggest that an exchange with other bonsai lovers, who have an understanding of this beautiful art, will help. Note: this weekend, the Bonsai Society is holding its annual show at Charlestown Bowling Club. It begins on Friday from 1pm to 5pm, Saturday 10am to 5pm and Sunday 10am to 4pm. Not to be missed – you will see some amazing plants.

• A little rain encouraged lawn lovers to fertilise, but make sure the fertiliser has dissolved or it will burn. • Dig out those tired pansies and fertilise with cow manure, ready to plant in one week’s time – Christmas is coming! • Watch for budworm on roses. This is when a flower opens half eaten; treat with Carbaryl every 10 days until beaten. Remember to spray when bees have gone to bed.

How should I water? Water is a precious resource, so it’s a no-brainer that we should be watering our gardens as efficiently as possible. The following are some strengths and limitations of common watering methods. Hand watering • Because we are physically spending time in the garden when watering by hand, we are more likely to notice individual plants and issues such as drying out or waterlogging, pest and disease outbreaks, and nutritional imbalances. • Hand watering gives us the ability to cater to an individual plant’s watering needs. • A quick hand water on a stinking hot day can mean the difference between the life and death of a plant. Drawbacks: It is difficult to know exactly how much water we are applying when hand watering;

could it be too little or too much? Hand watering is time consuming – one could spend hours each week watering over the summer months. Portable overhead sprinklers • They are portable, handy for lawn areas and much favoured by birds. Drawbacks: Can cause sunburn and humidity-related pest and disease issues. Very inefficient use of water. Note: Hunter Water warns not to use sprinklers while the region is on level one restrictions. Dripper irrigation systems • Dripper systems discharge water slowly and over a large area, equating to maximum absorption and efficiency. There is next to no evaporation, you prevent humidity-related pest and disease problems, and it’s a huge time saver. Drawback: Can be expensive initially.

Writers Aaron Sorkin and Steven Zaillian have crafted a great screenplay telling the story of a Major League manager (Brad Pitt, pictured), his drive to win, and the way a nerdy number-cruncher (Jonah Hill) helped him turn around their team’s fortunes. Well-paced and featuring compelling performances, it’s a gripping story about overcoming the odds.

in the stars

celebrity birthday

7 – 13 November 2019

Radha’s year ahead is ruled by the powerful planet Mars, often associated with the god of war and arguments. How she uses her energies will determine how well things go for her. Challenges, accidents and mishaps are likely as this will be an impulsive year and the intensity of the energies may make her want to move forward a little too quickly and make it difficult to see others’ viewpoints. She must slow down and be conscious of both her speech and actions.

FAMILY My family is the beat in my heart. My three sons, my five grandchildren and my two daughters-in-law – there is nothing better for me than spending time with them all on special occasions, holidays, and whenever it happens.

My favourite things EMERGENCY SERVICES

EMERGENCY Services

I love volunteering my time to the Salvation Army’s Emergency Services in times of floods, fires, cyclones and other disasters. I have travelled to many destinations to feed the firefighters, police, SES, and anyone who has been displaced and affected by an event.

FARM WORK With the plight of our local farmers in today’s world, I spend as much time and effort as I can in helping them to prepare ground, plant crops, harvest crops and then prepare for sale. I rescue any produce that can’t be sent to market for sale, and I distribute it to needy and less fortunate, mainly through Slow Food Hunter Valley, of which I am also a member.

KIWANIS Another great love of mine is volunteering and working in my community to raise much-needed funds to support the children of our community. Our mission statement is to serve the children of the world one child, one community at a time, which I have done for the past 27 years at Kiwanis Club of East Maitland.

Tony Milburn

HUNTER 2019 VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR

East Maitland’s Tony Milburn was honoured with the Hunter 2019 Volunteer of the Year and Senior Volunteer of the Year for his efforts in rescuing up to 10 tonnes of fresh farm produce annually. After rescuing the food, he then transports it to a Maitland-based organisation called Slow Food Hunter Valley, where it is turned into thousands of meals for people in need throughout the region. Tony has a serious inoperable medical condition that may end everything in an instant, but he continues to assist people in the community wherever and whenever he can. He also volunteers for the Salvation Army’s Emergency Services, as well as the Kiwanis Club of East Maitland, which raises funds to support local children. 62

PHOTOGRAPHY I love spending time photographing any birds or wildlife and sunsets. I am not great at it, and I’m still learning, but it gives me solitude and a chance to respect and be grateful to God for His great creation.

24-carat Gold Winning Style Our Master Jewellers have ensured that every aspect of the ring exudes the look and feel of a true winner. 24-carat gold plate gleams throughout the design which showcases a trio of galloping thoroughbreds bringing the wearer a trifecta of good luck. Upon an inlay of deep black onyx, a genuine Swarovski crystal glitters on a sculpted horseshoe, symbolising more good fortune. Even the sides of the ring feature raised-relief lucky horseshoes! Engraved within the band is the heart-pumping call ‘They’re Off and Racing’. On the track or off, our exclusive ring is made for the man who wants to join the winner’s circle!

Exceptional Value. Money-back Guarantee A great way to show your love of horseracing or the perfect gift for the punting man in your life, the “They’re Off and Racing Ring” is a remarkable value available for just five easy, interest-fee payments of $39.99. That’s just $199.95 plus $19.99 postage and handling. Plus, you’re on a sure bet with our world-famous 120-day money back guarantee. You risk nothing!
