This year's running of the Joe Dumesny Memorial will be the 11th edition of the event and will be held at the Parkes Paceway on Sunday, 23rd February.
The event is in memory of the late Joe Dumesny who was a leading breeder, owner, trainer, and driver throughout the Western Districts of NSW.
Joe's colurs of brown and green stripes were carried to victory by many prepared and presented horses on almost every track in the district, and even as far afield as Harold Park, Sydney.

The Dumesnys - Bruce, Craig, John, Tony, Brittany, Kate, Michael, Sarah, Tracey, Wendy, and Kevin.
The Dwyers - Janene, John, Anne Louise, Charles, Lara, and Matthew.
The Townsends - Andrew, Stan, Nathan, Stacey, and Sue.
The Jone's - Colin and Keith Jnr.
and Tony Deland, Matthew and Michael Leary have all been successful as breeders, owners, trainers, or drivers.
