Live entertainment in the beer garden will offer adults hours of fun whilst the younger generation will have free access to the kiddies entertainment area.

Organizers have really upped the ante this year with the introduction of the Triple Crown Polo Finish Competition, this will see 3 brand new VW Polo Vivo’s being given away, 1 for each leg of the Triple Crown!

We are expecting record attendance figures at the first leg of the Triple Crown as race goers and prawn lovers alike stand a chance to win one of the three zooty Polo Vivo’s we will be giving away!
