Fashions on the field will return this year and the details are on the website and will be in the race book. Great prizes to be won for the best on the field.
Currently, volunteers from the community are watering the track and grounds so it is green for race day. The grounds and track are looking amazing considering the harsh lead up to the races.
There is a lot of fun to be had so make it a date and head out for a great day of entertainment.
