Club chief Steve Hetherton is anticipating a big crowd keen to enjoy the spring weather and the recent easing of COVID restrictions.

"It's a fully vaxxed event with a safe environment," Hetherton said.
"We are fortunate restrictions have eased in time for the spring carnival which it traditionally the busiest time for the club outside the Albury Gold Cup carnival.
"Like a lot of people I was watching the races in Sydney last weekend and it was a welcome sight to see the atmosphere and that crowds were back.
"The rules have changed but people can still go to the races and have a great day out.
"Crowds were back at Wagga last weekend and it was huge with 3500 attending.
