History

Temora is centrally located in the South West & Riverina region, approximately one hour north of Wagga Wagga and one hour west of Young. It is prime mixed farming country and home also to the Temora Aviation Museum and Lake Centenary. 

The Temora Trotting Club was incorporated on 1 April 1976. Prior to 1976 harness racing in Temora was conducted by the Temora Show Society.

The history of harness racing in Temora goes back over 100 years, with it noted in the Temora Star newspaper of a meeting to form an executive committee in January 1904, at the Terminus Hotel, Temora.

Mention the name of Temora and there are still many people who associate it with one of its most famous sons – champion pacer, Paleface Adios. Known as the ‘Temora Tornado’, Paleface Adios was a dearly loved champion to many Australians.

Among his great victories were two Lord Mayor’s Cups at Harold Park, two Clive Uhr Championships in Brisbane, the Winfield Cup in Melbourne when he was running as an eight-year-old and his greatest victory of all – the 1976 Miracle Mile.

The significance of this champion to the town of Temora is remembered in the form of a life-size monument featured in Paleface Park in the main street of the township.
