FASHION, fillies and a dash of spring racing panache will come to Dalton Park tomorrow for Griffith's once-a-year race day.
More than 3000 punters are expected to swarm through the gates for the event headlined by the $15,000 Yellowtail Griffith Cup in the third meeting back since horseracing was almost lost to the city.
Strong fields have been entered for the six-race card, with locally trained gelding Sonro bidding to become the first Griffith horse to claim the cup.
In true Griffith style, the fashions on the field contest is tipped to be just as competitive as locals vye for thousands of dollars worth of prizes.
Patrons are being urged to be prepared for cooler weather, with the temperature predicted to reach 16 degrees and sunny.
Griffith Jockey Club president Judy Kroek said the stage was set for the city's social event of the year.
"The track looks amazing and there's a huge buzz around this year," Mrs Kroek said.
"This is our once-a-year race day and people really want to make the most of it."
Free buses will ferry patrons from the Griffith visitors centre from 11.30am and back to town at the end of the day.
