The annual Emerald Cup is coming again this year and so too is the excitement of horses, hats and hip pocket punts! Come out and see who the top racer of the day will be on Saturday 27 May. Come and join us for a fine day of racing at Pioneer Park.
The brand new Darley Kingsford Smith Cup replaces the BTC Cup Day to thrust the 2017 Channel Seven Brisbane Racing Carnival into top gear. This historically named raceday welcomes punters to the heritage-listed Eagle Farm Racecourse for a day of complete intemperance and first-class beauty.
