The Border Ovarian Cancer Awareness Group is handing over the reins to the Wodonga and District Turf Club when it comes to their annual Caulfield Cup Day fundraiser.
But the club will continue to support cancer research and will adopt the group's (blow-up) horses following Saturday's pony hop race.
Founder and president Heather Watts said it was fantastic the Turf Club were continuing their support in memory of her daughter Kelsey.
BOCAG has raised more than $300,000 for ovarian cancer trials taking place at the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre and in Melbourne.
"The community love to hear that money they've given has had a result - because you don't always find out what happens with it," Ms Watts said.
"Researchers at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre had a breakthrough because of a trial the community paid for.
"We'll be getting an update from Professor David Bowtell in the marquee about how that's going."
Professor Bowtell leads one of the largest population-based cohort studies of ovarian cancer, which around 1500 Australian women will be diagnosed with this year.

Ms Watts said the group would be able to donate to Professor Bowtell's research again.
"It's $1 million to run the whole trial, but we are able to give him some money towards that," she said.
"We'll present him with the cheque on Saturday.
"This particular trial could mean something not just for ovarian cancer, but all cancers."
Before Professor Bowtell speaks, a winner will be crowned in the pony hop race and Angus Webster will be hoping to take home gold.
"Grice Storage has been involved every year but they haven't had a winner," Ms Watts said.
"There's also strong competition this year from the Commercial Club."
The other businesses represented in this year's pony hop race will be the Albury and Wodonga branches of Elders Real Estate, McRae Motors, Wodonga Turf Club, 2AY Radio, and Blacklocks Wodonga.
