Balaklava Cup


Posted in

Now that the Royal Adelaide Show is in full swing, Spring Racing Carnival is just around the corner. The first of these big events is the Balaklava Cup. This year it was held on Wednesday, September 12th.

The Balaklava Racing Club was established in 1903 and since this time has grown to be the largest country thoroughbred racing event in South Australia. In excess of 8,000 people make the trip to the mid north farming town to let their hair down and have a great day at The Races. Cup day attracts a crowd coming from city and surrounding country region to enjoy the atmosphere of one of the state’s premier events. A day of fun, great racing, fashion, food and wine.
