BIG WEEKEND AT J.D.A. RACEWAY WITH GP DERBY, GP OAKS AND DERBY DAY BRUNCH

Hats, horses and Derby Brunch … does it get any better at The Horses At Evergreen Park?

If horses is your preference you will get lots of those. Fifteen races will hit J.D.A. Raceway on Saturday and Sunday.

And if you are looking to show off that fancy hat, Derby Day Sunday is the place to do it. 2Day FM Radio, the Horses, Hats & Derby Brunch sponsor will be there picking out the best-dressed woman, man and child.

It all starts with the Derby Brunch Sunday at 10:30 a.m. Because of the demand the venue for the brunch has been moved from the track to the TARA Energy Services Centre. Patrons will be transported via horse-drawn wagon to the race track.

You can purchase your brunch tickets here.

On the track, the feature race on Saturday is the Distaff Series Leg 2. That’s the fifth race of the day after the 1:15 p.m. first post. The purse is $9,000 in purse money up for grabs and six horses taking part.

The same day, in race No. 6. Evergreen Park Racing Club horse Ynotgiveitago will be giving it a go.

Sunday features two of the biggest races of the season – the GP Derby and the GP Oaks – both with $25,000 purses.

The Derby is the third race of the Day and has a short field of four horses while the Oaks is No. 5 with five chasing the big cheque.

First post on both days is 1:15 p.m.
