Ladies One Mile Day
12:00 pm - 5:45 pm
Central Southland Raceway,
The Wairio Trotting Club’s annual Ladies One Mile Day is on again this Saturday at the Central Southland Raceway in Winton.
The day will highlight fast paced one mile racing with the feature being the Vet South Equine Southern Belle Speed Series Heat for a stake of $12,000.
Every race on the programme is over the one mile distance with the first due to start at 12.10pm and the last at 5.31pm. Admission to the course is free.
Ladies Day is promoted as a special one for the ladies, of course and the Wairio Club has several activities especially for females.
Prizes In Purses was a great success last year with ladies invited to drop their losing tote tickets with their name and contact number into a bucket on course from which eight draws are made throughout the day. The winning lady on each occasion then comes to the birdcage, chooses a handbag and receives the prize that the bag contains. It could not be easier to win. Participants do have to be over 18 however to have entered a losing ticket.
Meanwhile the men can put their losing tickets into a draw for betting vouchers courtesy of on course caterers Gypsy Kitchen.
A netball goal shooting competition will also be held, with the great prize of a double pass to the ANZ Netball Premiership Super Sunday on Sunday 5 May featuring the Ascot Park Hotel Southern Steel against the Northern Mystics with other games between Magic and Pulse plus Tactix and Stars.
The Otautau Patchwork Group will have a special display on course and Kidz Kartz are also on the programme.
It is traditional on Ladies Day that the Wairio Club profile a lady who has contributed to the harness racing industry and this year Nichola Hikawai, Southern Harness Racing’s Office Manager, is the lady to be honoured.
