ALBURY Racing Club will hold its Oktoberfest meeting to coincide with the Caulfield Guineas on Saturday.
The TAB meet will be broadcast on Sky Racing 1 and has attracted 136 nominations for the seven-race card with the club catering for serious punters as well as the non-serious racegoers.
The crowd will be able to choose from German foods from the stalls set up in the Oktoberfest Beer Garden with the big screen in the main betting ring beaming all the racing action from around the country.
Between races, they can listen to the German Oom Pah band and enjoy the onstage dancing with the club offering give-aways.
The feature race, the $15,000 Benchmark 70 Hcp (1175m), has attracted 25 nominations.
The Brett Cavanough-trained Ceccanti is among them and is resuming since winning over the Albury Gold Cup carnival.
Handy performers Zarreig, Simmo, Minnesota Hussle, Lateandknewit and Myname’sjames have also been nominated.
Gates open at 10.30am with the first Caulfield race at 12.15pm and the first local race at 11am.
