Saddle up for the Adelaide Cup

Racing fans will want to head to Adelaide on March 10 to soak up the fun.

The South Australian capital's premier horse racing event is fun for locals as well as visitors to the city.  Held on a Monday at Morphettville Racecourse, the day is also a state public holiday and aside from the racing fun, it's also a highly social event.  Try your luck and place a bet or two on the races.  Perhaps you'd like to soak up the convivial atmosphere - if so, there's also plenty on offer for the more social butterflies. The Tattsbet Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival on Adelaide Cup day has high stakes, great fashion and marquees to socialise beneath.  Then there's the Myer Fashions on the Field South Australian State Final, which will interest those who are fashion-forward.  Simply register between the hours of 11 am and 1 pm on race day on the Field stage at the Pavilion Gardens. The Women's Racewear section offers a fantastic prize to the winner - a 10 day trip to the 2014 Melbourne Cup Carnival, plus well over $1,000 worth of other prizes. There's also a $10,000 holiday to be won by a lucky racegoer, sponsored by XXXX. With live entertainment on offer - from the duo All About Her, plus covers band Wasabi - the day will certainly be a lively one.  Food and beverage options will ensure attendees are fed and watered, too.  Admission is available to both adults and children, with adult tickets costing $25 and children under the age of 18 receiving free admission. There are even special packages available for those who fancy a touch of luxury, with various pavilions offering lunches, afternoon tea, beverages and live entertainment.  Head along to Adelaide this March for a fun-filled day on the track!
