“These are two big events and major nights of racing for the year,” said Redcliffe Harness Racing Club President Bernie Ring.

Ring said this year would see a return to the full race card for the ‘night of the year’ after COVID hit last year’s plans.

After the last race, tribute band Cold Chisel Revived will be playing. Admission to meetings at Redcliffe Harness Racing Club is free.
