Retro Trots

Retro Trots

For the first time in over 40 years, The Trots will be making an historic return to the main arena at the Adelaide Showgrounds, Wayville on Friday 27 October. Home to South Australian harness racing from 1925 to 1973, the Wayville Track was described as ‘racing in a colosseum’ and was the setting for some of harness racing’s greatest ever moments. Come Friday 27 October this exciting sport will return to the Showgrounds for a great night of racing and entertainment with a ‘back to the 70s’ retro theme. With an 8 race program, the night will feature an invitational drivers event with 12 of Australia’s best harness racing drivers with full TAB facilities and on-course bookmakers.

In addition to sensational racing, our arena and roving MCs will keep you entertained all night! The expected sell-out crowd will enjoy the after race concert by local band The Incredibles, a Legends Showcase and the Village Green Precinct with live entertainment, big screen and food and drink offerings. In addition there will be the very popular ‘pony trots’ races, drivers autographs, horse selfies, a nostalgic trip down memory lane and more.
