The Mareeba Turf Club is once again hosting their biggest race day of the year, the Boxing Day Races next Saturday, 26 December.

The Boxing Day Races are the biggest event of the year for the Mareeba Turf Club with thousands of people flocking to the track on the day.

This year’s event will be a five race card with a special foot race to be held after the official races have finished.

Mareeba Turf Club President Alex Malliff is excited for this year’s race and is encouraging those who haven’t booked their tickets to do so.

“I love the Boxing Day Races it’s my favourite day of racing in the year it’s such a super atmosphere,” he said.

“Everybody that comes there comes back, you don’t go to the Boxing Day Races in Mareeba and say I’ve done that, I won’t come back.

“Come and see it for yourself your always left wanting more after the Boxing Day Races.”

Live music, food, drinks and even a jumping castle and a possible waterslide will be available this year to help cool off some of that summer heat.

Tickets for the Boxing Day Races cannot be purchased at the gate this year as all tickets are now required to be pre-purchased before arriving on the race day.

To get your tickets for the event head to www.trybooking.com/BMRAGgates are set to open at 11am on Saturday.
