The Farmers & Graziers Squatters Cup has become an annual event, featuring the historic Squatters Cup, which was first presented in 1930. Port Augusta’s central location to farming and pastoralist regions makes it a shopping and social hub for many regional families. A day at the races is an ideal way to for the rural families to spend time together.
Held at the Port Augusta Racecourse, the races allows the club to showcase not only their community events but also one of South Australia’s major tourism attractions – the magnificent Flinders Ranges.
All eight races on Cup Day are televised on Racing.com and Sky Racing to viewing audiences in virtually every town and city across Australia with the beautiful Flinders Ranges as the backdrop. There is no other race meeting in the state that can offer coverage of such a brilliant attraction.
The kids will be entertained for FREE with the R.I.C.E Kids Activity Centre, Archie the Stable Stars Horse and a Jumping Castle to keep them busy. And of course no Cup Day is complete without the Fashions on the Field.
There’s nothing like a Cup Day at The Races!
