It's that time of year again, with the Aggies Race Day this weekend.
The Wagga Ag Races were created to raise money for Peter Worsley, an old boy of Ag college who broke his neck in a game of rugby, leaving him a quadriplegic.
Thirty-one years later, the races still support him.
Have you thought about how you will navigate the week and make it to the other side of one of the city's biggest social events?
Here's your insiders survival guide on what to wear, how to bet, how to get there and where to continue the party.
1. Dress to impress
Ladies, while sky-high heels and a mini skirt might seem like a good idea at the time, do yourself a favour and skip the blisters and goosebumps by dressing appropriately.
Not only does this mean adhering to the dress code, but also dressing with smarts. There is a possibility of showers, so invest in a good quality clear poncho.
If you decide on wearing heels, stash a pair of flats in your bag just in case you regret that choice.
If you haven't already, it's a good idea to purchase your tickets because prices for general admission will increase to $25 at the gate.
3. Tackling transport
There's nothing worse when you're dressed and ready to go only to realise there's no taxis available. So whether it is booking in advance, or organising a designated driver make sure you've pre-arranged your wheels.
The club have arranged for buses running to the track from Charlie's store at the uni, Estella Medical Centre and the Boorooma play park.
After the event, buses are running from the track to William Farrer for the official after party.
4. Show your form
Thoroughbred horses are amazingly consistent animals and if you can crack the code in the form guide, you can beat the bookies.
Look for horses that are good at the track and distance, have solid recent form and have drawn a good barrier.
For short races (1000m-1400m), look for horses that are compact and stoutly built, with big strong behinds. Don't worry too much about how fit they look, pick the ones that looked keyed-up, bouncy and ready to go.
If they're sweating a lot between the legs or around the flanks (near the lower ribs), your horse has already expended a lot of energy.
For longer races (2000m+), look for horses that have a longer, narrower look about them. You also want your distance horses to be relaxed, rather than champing at the bit.
The William Farrer Hotel is hosting the official after party, but you can continue the good times at post-race parties at The Victorian Hotel and Que Bar - or your venue of choice.
Make sure to stay safe, gamble and drink responsibly and enjoy the weekend!
