On course patrons will be among the winners at the annual ILT Race Day at Ascot Park Raceway in Invercargill this Sunday (3 March).
Meal vouchers from ILT establishments to a combined value of $750 will be up for grabs during the day and can be won just by dropping your losing tote tickets into the barrels around the course which will put patrons in the lucky draw to win one of the many vouchers.
The feature races of the day will be the Northern Tavern Autumn Cup and the ILT Nugget Final while leading reinsman David Butcher of Cambridge will make a rare appearance in the Southern Harness region at the meeting. Butcher, who has reined over 2,500 winners for stakes of 24 million dollars, won the 2008 New Zealand Cup on Changeover, has experienced success at the Harness Jewels and has represented New Zealand in the World Driving Championships and he will be a drawcard for racegoers on Sunday.
Ten races are scheduled with the first at 12.25pm and the last at 5.27pm.
Admission to the course is free!
