Due to the extreme weather forecast for Saturday 6 January the Metropolitan meeting scheduled for the Gawler & Barossa Jockey Club has been moved to Sunday 7 January.
The change in date has meant that the raceday will no longer be Twilight meeting as it was previously scheduled. The first race for Sunday is set to be run at 12.55pm.
But while the date has changed, a big day is still planned at Gawler!
Entry is just $10, with Food Trucks, Canadian Club Pop-up Bar, Wine Bars and Free Kids Activities (Waterslide, Jumping Castle and Face Painting)
Packages and Bistro meals will be available in the Terrace Function Centre starting at $20. Gates Open at 11.00am.

The hot weather forecast has also forced Victoria's Saturday Metropolitan meeting at Caulfield to be moved to Sunday as well to avoid the extreme heat.
With the Gawler Metropolitan meeting moving to Sunday, the meeting originally scheduled for Sunday at Naracoorte has now been moved to Monday 8 January.
