Alternatively, plan the day your way with a $30 General Admission ticket and enjoy the entertainment on the lawn, delicious food options (or bring your own picnic!) and live music.
With an excess of one million dollars in prize money up for grabs, some of the best horses from spring will be vying for a piece of Ballarat Racing history.
