For the kids, budding jockeys can get their foot in a stirrup and ride home a winner with Pony Rides , and stay cool with a bumper water slide on course - so pack those cozzies, towels and thongs!

There's plenty of food to go around with a delicious BBQ and live music on course will play the soundtrack of summer. 

Sponsorship packages are available for the day, along with corporate sponsorship, with seven races set to be held.
