Family day is always well supported by the local communities of Roebourne, Wickham, Karratha & Dampier and features a range of children’s activities. There are two feature races on this day, the Great Northern Handicap over 1600m and the Cossack Handicap over 1200m, the former race in the 1890’s was the starting point for a number of successful campaigns by North West horses during the Perth Summer racing season, which was eclipsed by the legendary North West bred  Wandering Willie which won the Perth Cup in 1890 & 1892.
