Oakbank Racecourse will come alive on Oakbank Easter Saturday with six flat and two jumps races, including the historic Great Eastern Steeplechase, which was first won by Tormentor in 1876.
Be part of the tradition and be seen at one of the world’s largest Picnic race meetings. Pack your car with the BBQ, Picnic table and rug and head into the centre of the track to enjoy the unique atmosphere, including sideshows, food vans, bars and TAB facilities.
Easter Saturday hosts a full race card, including the Great Eastern Steeplechase, the listed Hills Railway Stakes and Onkaparinga Cup.
