Catholic Schools Race Day is on this weekend

THIS weekend will have the hats flying and the hooves flinging mud for the 10th annual Catholic Schools Race Day at Thebeban Park.

The annual event raises money for the four catholic schools in the region and with the main marquee already sold out the event will be one not to be missed.

Race club secretary Shanyn Limpus said they are hoping for good weather for a great day out.

"Park gates open at 11am with the first race kicking off at 1pm," Miss Limpus said.

"We will have five local races and the always favourable fashions on the field."

Miss Limpus said previous years had been very successful in raising funds for schools.

"Some of the Shalom school students go along to assist in the day which will be fun for all," she said.

"It's just a great day out and what better way to celebrate then to come to one of Bundabergs favourite days out."
