Yarra Valley Pacing Cup - Oaks Day
Ah, Oaks Day. Or as it’s known in this part of the world, the Pacing Cup. This is Yarra Valley racing showing off: the sun’s out, the horses are set, and everybody’s dressed to the absolute nines. The Pacing Cup is one of the club’s biggest annual harness events, and it tends to go off with a bang. The fashions are particularly fierce (dress to impress, ladies), live bands will be pumping out the tunes, and there’s a chef-prepared picnic hamper with your name all over it. And if you think the harness racing’s competitive, just wait ‘til you see Fashions on the Field…
