With a record amount of inquiries and private marquees booked, the Warracknabeal race meet on Saturday is shaping up to be a massive event for the region.
Warracknabeal Racing Club manager Lisa Inkster said the races contribute to an excellent Easter weekend.
"We are certainly gearing up for a massive day here in Warracknabeal," she said.
"The weather is going to be perfect by the looks of it, and we feel like it is probably going to be one of the biggest ever."
The headline 1600 metre race for the Warracknabeal Cup is set to run at 4:11pm, with a field of nine competing for a prize of $45,000.
Warracknabeal racing president Lance Huebner said it will be a tight race, with Horsham-based trainer Paul Preusker trying to win his second consecutive cup.
Last year's winner and track record holder Kapaulenko back to defend his crowd," Huebner said.
"But trainer Paul Preusker has stablemate Bling Dynasty also entered, and last start in Adelaide he beat Kapaulenko, but only by less than a length.
"Tasmanian 9-year-old Kenjorwood could be just the horse to spoil the Wimmera stables party. Trained at Seven Mile Beach by Scott Brunton, whose stable is firing at present.
"Two starts back Kenjorwood finished third only 1.5 lengths behind the smart Hellova Street at Launceston."
