AFTER a successful trip to the July Racing Carnival two years ago, Noel Parbery and Wayne Towler knew they had to come back.

This time though, they brought a posse.

"We're bringing up the money from Sydney," they joked.

The group of four this year is looking forward to another good two days of racing.

"We found the locals are friendly and the weather has been really good," Noel said.

"Hopefully it holds for both days out here."

The group, who are regular race-goers, flew into Grafton yesterday and will fly back home to Sydney tomorrow.

"You can't beat a country race meeting, and this is the biggest one in the country," said Wayne.

As for the Cup, they boys were united.

"We like Gazza Guru for the Cup," said Noel.

"We'll bring a flood of money for it now," he joked.

As for next year, the group says they'll definitely be back.

"We'll have to drag some more up here," quipped Greg.
