2021 TAB Constellations Testimonials

American Dealer - Ray Green & Anthony Butt

We have experienced an overwhelming surge of positive feedback following this years’ TAB Constellations! In our eyes, the night was a huge success and it’s great to hear that those who attended agree. Here’s to a great carnival!

Read below some of the testimonials we have received from key participants and guests of The Creek’s 2021 TAB Constellations winter carnival.

“The organisation, the structure of Racing and the atmosphere of the 2021 TAB QLD Constellations Carnival at Albion Park for the 3 nights was electric, We had the rare opportunity to also enjoy the social side of the carnival which was fantastic. We were lucky to share the special moment of winning our first Group One with friend and family on hand. Here’s to you Albion Park and Racing QLD on a job well done and to those involved at Albion Park, congratulations, bring on 2022.”


“I was lucky enough to be involved in this years QLD Cons carnival and what an exciting event it was from Start to finish. It attracted the very best horses and horsemen from Australia and NZ. The racing was fantastic with all race keenly contested and there was no place for the faint hearted. I congratulated RQ and The Creek on staging a magnificent carnival and I can’t wait to return next year”


“We thoroughly enjoyed the carnival! We had the pleasure of bringing along 23 owners in our horses to The Creek over the 3 Saturday nights in which only received positive feedback about all aspects of the meetings. In our eyes Racing Qld have set the benchmark for the other states, this carnival would be a daunting task for the other states to top! The atmosphere, the people, the prizemoney and particularly the race caller, Chris Barsby! Not just the greatest race caller in Australia, easily the best on this planet and a true inspiration for all those budding young race callers out there!”


“It was a great carnival, exciting to be part of. It’s going to be the place to be each winter. Can see it going bigger and better every year”


“Congratulations to all that were responsible for organising a magnificent constellations carnival. I’m sure it will go from strength to strength over the coming years”


“This years carnival was next level, the addition of the new group one races and the hype, the promotion and talk around the rising sun race was exceptional, I can really see this carnival being one of the biggest in the country in the near future. Hats off to everybody involved in making the carnival such a success and looking forward to being back next year.”


“It was an awesome carnival that had great racing, great atmosphere and just all round very well done by Racing QLD and the creek! I can’t wait to come back next year to be part of the great racing. It’s definitely a carnival participants should try and get to at some stage.”


“Congratulations Team Queensland Harness for a great carnival, you have lifted the bar a few notches. Hopefully it will inspire others to do the same. Unfortunately, my owners could not attend this years’ carnival, but the excellent media coverage went a long way to compensate. Thanks for the hospitality, looking forward to the next one.”


“It was such a pleasure to be part of the 2021 TAB Constellations, we had such a great time and the hospitality was second to none. Obviously, we hoped the results may have been a little kinder but that’s the beauty of racing. The carnival was very well run and had a feel of the classic Inter Dominion series, the expectations were real and we’re looking forward to returning next year to win the Rising Sun.”

“The Albion Park Constellations carnival was an unbelievable success. Winning the inaugural edition of the Rising Sun was extremely satisfying, in particular, sharing that moment with my son, Nathan. Competing during a Brisbane carnival is always a season highlight and this year was no different. It was great to be part of the action. The hype surrounding the carnival was like no other previously.”

- Mark Purdon

“Some organisations just get it, and I can’t speak highly enough of the recent Queensland carnival at Albion Park. Even though I’m based on the other side of the country, I never felt I was on the other side looking in – the Albion Park Club and committee deserve special recognition for their efforts”
