SATURDAY will be the biggest race day of the year for the people of the Wyndham area when the Kindergarten Stakes Day takes place at Young Quinn Raceway.
The two feature races, the Alabar NZ Kindergarten Stakes and the MLT Three Rivers Hotel Wyndham Cup, will both feature some of New Zealand’s best pacers from throughout the years.
The Kindergarten Stakes is for 2-year-old pacers over a distance of 1609m for a stake of $25,000, while the Wyndham Cup will run over 3200m for a stake of $14,999.
Also on the programme will be the Gold Chip Final over 2400m.
As the meeting falls on St Patrick’s Day this year, on-course patrons are encouraged to dress appropriately to be in to win prizes.
Children will also be well catered for with free mini jeep rides and other free activities throughout the day.
The action is scheduled to begin at noon and admission to the course is free.
