“It doesn’t mat­ter if you are gen­eral ad­mis­sion or in a mar­quee, we have a great day planned for ev­ery­one,” Ms Caz­zulino said.

The horses won’t be the only en­ter­tain­ment, with well- known band Dr Jack tak­ing the stage in the af­ter­noon to keep pun­ters danc­ing. Tick­ets at the gate are $ 20 for adults, $ 10 for con­ces­sions and kids free.
