THE year may be wind­ing down, but for Mt Perry Race Club things are just get­ting started.

The five-race pro­gram will see a full day of hard rac­ing, with book­mak­ers at the event to take bets on all of the pun­ters’ favourite picks.

Be sure to frock and suit up, as the long-run­ning fash­ions of the field event brings the Cen­tral and North Bur­nett’s best dressed to the fore­front.
