The Ekka Races are due to take place at Eagle Farm Racecourse on Wednesday August 15, 2012.
Held on Brisbane’s Ekka public holiday, the day features eight action-packed races that are sure to impress each and every race goer.
One of the biggest races of the day will be the Country Cup, which will see up to 16 horses battle it out in the pursuit of their first metro race win.
The Ekka Races’ 1,600 metre Handicap will see local talent Equissential take to the track as he attempts to claim his first win of the new racing season.
The five-year-old has been a constant performer in Brisbane and is sure to give the Ekka Races crowds an impressive show.
While the best action will feature on the track, a large amount of other entertainment options will take place on the Eagle Farm lawn.
Live music and games are due to be on offer throughout the day, while thrill seekers can watch the BMX and skateboarding half pipe show.
General admission tickets start from just $28 at the gates or online, with Member For A Day tickets available for $106.
