Friday Night Racing Returns To Canterbury For 2017

The Australian Turf Club’s night racing season continues at Canterbury Park this Friday with free entry for all patrons and a range of free children’s entertainment for families during the New Year holiday period.

The hugely popular Canterbury Foodies Market returns along with a range of $5 food and drink options at ATC outlets across the racecourse.

Amongst the free children’s entertainment at the end of the main grandstand trackside will be pony rides, face painting and a jumping castle.

Owners with a runner at all Friday meetings are able to share with their fellow owners in a $200 food and beverage card, redeemable at ATC bars and food outlets in all areas.

The ATC in conjunction with the Australian Christian Racing Chaplaincy will award a prize to one strapper for the best presented horse in the feature race of the night, the $80,000 Schweppes Evening Star Handicap over 1900m.

Friday night’s program will feature eight races with the first starting at 6.15pm and 30 minute gaps between each race until the last event at 9.45pm.

ATC Executive General Manager of Racing James Heddo said the range of free offers and food options across Canterbury Park has proven particularly popular with the local community.

“We have been very pleased with the attendance and atmosphere that our expanded night racing season has attracted and we have three more night meetings in early 2017 that will continue to offer great value for our customers,’’ Mr Heddo said.

“We will continue to offer owners extra incentives through the food and beverage card and also a travel rebate for country trainers who also have a runner in the Saturday TAB Highway Handicap.’’
