The club hasn’t raced since February but will hold 10 races, with with first at 12.57pm.

The first race, the Get Well Danny Smith Stakes (320m), has been named for one of the club’s biggest supporters.

Smith, who usually collects the rug after the greyhounds have raced, has broken his leg. 

Barry Hull’s Penguin Man and Leonard Holmes’ Little Whacko are both looking to make it a hat-trick of wins.

Penguin Man has won his only two starts to date, both at Temora while Little Whacko has won three of his last four starts.

It will be a busy day at the Showground with a harness racing meeting to follow.
