The Mareeba Turf Club has geared up for another full day of racing with their scheduled Easter races this Saturday, April 3. 

After the Einasleigh Easter Races were cancelled the torch was passed onto the Mareeba Turf Club who has taken the honour to host with open arms. 

There will be live entertainment on the day with a water slide and jumping castle to keep the little ones entertained.

With a five-race program on the card the Easter day out is set to be one full of fun including an Easter theme and fashions on the field.

Mareeba Turf Club President Alex Malliff said that the club is “ready and waiting” for people to come flooding through the gates. 

“It’s going to be a family fun fueled day with a water slide, jumping castle and lots of easter eggs for the kids,” he said.

“We were approached by the Country Racing Manager of Racing Queensland to host this event for Einasleigh, and we were more than happy to take it on.

“I’d love to see 1000 people there enjoying the races, that would be good that’s our goal.” 

Tickets for the event are sure to sell out quick. To get yours before you miss out, head to www.trybooking.com/BPBYR to secure your place race side this Easter.
