Horse racing has been a large part of Australian heritage since inauguration and last week saw the 86th birthday of Australia’s most well-known horse, Phar Lap.
No matter where you live in Australia, the Spring Racing Carnival is starting to get into full swing. It is the perfect time to get a few friends together, don your best frock or suit and head down for a magnificent day of fashion, bubbly and, hopefully, come out ahead. Many of the meetings are encouraging families to attend with jumping castles, petting zoos and many other child-friendly activities arranged over the carnival period.
