This Saturday you will be able to see live racing at the Ipswich Turf Club for the first time since October 2019!

Spectators will be able to view the races live including the $85,000 Eye Liner Stakes and the $125,000 Gai Waterhouse Classic from the viewing terrace which overlooks the track.

Gates will open at 10.30am on the day and spectators will be able to see the horses parade before they line up in the Turf Club’s new stalls.
