Calliope is off and racing for big Boxing Day of fun

GIVE your family a Boxing Day to remember, with the annual Calliope Cup the feature race of the program.

The annual event is popular with old and young alike, and in last year's four-race program the female jockeys took the spoils in all the races.

They'll try to repeat the unusual feat this season, with the first of five races set to get under way at 2.30pm.

The fun day is also a chance to dress up and kick up your heels after Christmas festivities.

On Thursday, The Observer will feature a form guide and all the tips and tricks from local racing experts.

Make sure you get your copy, and head to the track on Racecourse Rd, Calliope on Boxing Day for a great day out.
