First class greyhound racing and entertainment for the entire family are just two of the attractions for Wagga Gold Cup night on Friday.
Wagga and District Greyhound Racing Club racing manager John Patton believes the 11-race card is the best assembled during his time there.
"I would say it's the best dogs I've seen here since I started. One of the dogs nearly beat the track record at his first time here," Patton said.
"It's also a great family night with kids entertainment. They can have a go on the jumping castle, face painting and meet some greyhounds.
"Then we've got a nice big raffle and a lucky gate prize."
There will also be live entertainment at Wagga Showground on Friday night, along with the AFL and NRL on TV, along with TAB and bookmaker facilities in the heated betting ring.
The running of the ex-props race will also be held.
The first race gets underway at 6.42pm on Friday, with the Cup at 9pm.
Gunning trainer Jodie Lord has qualified three dogs through to the Ladbrokes Graeme Hull Memorial Wagga Gold Cup (525m) and has come up with some favourable draws for the feature that sees $10,000 to go the winner.
Wagga will be represented by the John Hartley-trained Tennessee Tiger in the final.
