Seven’s Live coverage of Australia’s major horse races starts this Saturday from Caulfield Racecourse with Orr Stakes day on 7TWO from 1pm AEDT
The Caulfield meeting will start earlier due to the extreme heat forecast in Melbourne, so 7TWO’s coverage will now start an hour earlier than originally planned.
The Danny O’Brien-trained Shamus Award will be aiming to emulate his Cox Plate heroics in the Group 1, $400,000 feature race, the Orr Stakes.
