Darby McCarthy Race Day

The inaugural Darby McCarthy Race Day will pay tribute to Darby MCarthy who is recognised as one of the greatest ever Indigenous jockeys, winning Group 1 Races like the AJC Derby and Epsom Handicap as well as saluting in the Stradbroke Handicap on three occasions.

Darby was a trailblazer for Indigenous Jockeys, riding more than 1000 race winners in Australia, New Zealand and Europe.

Racing is Darby’s beloved sport and has long been a voice for his people, even setting up an apprentice school for Indigenous youths who wanted to become involved in the racing industry.

South West Indigenous Network Inc (SWIN) is a recognised multi-sport organisation which provides leadership, guidance and support to the Indigenous communities of South West and South East Queensland through opportunities in sport, physical activities and recreation.

We look forward to seeing you join us to celebrate the career of Uncle Darby!

South West Indigenous Network exists to ensure that through sport, culture and community, Indigenous Australians can live longer and have a better quality of life.
