The date has been set for one of country’s premier horse racing events. The 2018 Sabeto Races has been confirmed for Saturday, June 30.

Sabeto Races events manager Kim Beddoes said yesterday planning and preparations have begun for the race.

“We received wonderful feedback from everyone that attended the inaugural Sabeto Races,” she said.

“We hope to continue to improve the event each year to ensure it remains the premier horse racing event in Fiji.

“With last year’s weather, however to try and avoid the rain we have moved the event earlier in the year during a more traditional ‘dry season’.

“It is already shaping up to be even better this year, with visitors from Australia and New Zealand already planning their holidays around that time to attend the event in June.”

Beddoes added the format of the races would be the same and she is urging the general public to mark the date in their calendars.

“At present we are looking to keep the same format, however this will be confirmed closer to the date after further consultation with the horse racing community.

“Mark your calendars now, make plans; it is a long weekend, (Friday, June 29, National Sports Day).

“The Sabeto Races is a great fun day out for the whole family; you don’t have to be a horse owner or enthusiast to enjoy the day at the races.

“There is something for everyone to enjoy, it is different to most other public events held in Fiji and we encourage people from all over Fiji and overseas to enjoy a Fiji style day at the races’.

“Animals Fiji is also on board again for the 2018 races, we have even bigger plans to further educate and inspire horse owners to ensure the health and treatment of these beautiful animals continues to improve in Fiji.”
