HORSHAM Greyhound Racing Club is gearing up for the return of the Horsham Cup on Saturday night.

The 40th running of the event is back after track upgrades meant last year’s cup was not able to go ahead. 

The Cup will see a prize of $47,000 on offer for the winner. As well 12 races, there will be plenty of entertainment, with music, dining, giveaways and activities for the children. 

Club manager Justin Brilliant said it was going to be a big night for all involved.

“We have some of the best greyhounds in the country so we are hoping for a big night – it’s our biggest night of the year,” he said. 

Shuttlebusses will be running to and from the event from both sides of the Wimmera River. 

Gates open at 6pm and entry is free. For more information, visit the Horsham Racing Greyhound Club on Facebook.
