This weekend there is a "double header" of picnic racing with the Healesville Cup on Saturday followed by Woolamai down by the sea near Philip Island. The weather prediction is 36deg. with a cool change in the morning to make for a fine afternoon at Healesville and 23deg. for Woolamai and with plenty of shade along with the new covered betting ring patrons should be well accommodated at both venues. There are few better ways to enjoy a relaxing day at the races where you can b.y.o. everything from drinks to food and even your own shade tent at these picturesque racecourses. As both days are expected to attract good crowds it is advisable to get there before noon to secure a good spot.
