Thursday, 20th December 2012

Mount Barker's Frost Park racecourse is set to really embrace the festive season this Sunday when fine wine, fashion and the Great Southern's richest race, the $90,000 Mungrup Stud Sprint (1000m) combine in what is touted as the biggest event on the Mount Barker Turf Club's calendar. The carnival setting features wine tasting from the region's leading producers, various gourmet food options and fashions on the field. Plus some racing! A quality 9-race card is programmed and Mt Barker Grapes & Gallops chairperson Kim Tyrer enthused, "It is a fantastic community event with the atmosphere of a good old-fashioned country race day… Get dressed up, find a fabulous hat, come along and try a glass of award-winning wine, some delicious gourmet food and enjoy a great day of country horse racing."
