Local region horses will be running this afternoon at the Sapphire Turf Club at Kalaru. 

Five races are being held this afternoon at the Sapphire Turf Club at Kalaru, at its biennial Melbourne Cup meet.

Horses from Moruya and Canberra will be running on a track that received 20ml of rain over the weekend, but has dried out enough to be a "4" this afternoon, according to the club's secretary manager Rob Tweedie. 

The theme for fashions on the field is 'Metallics and Rose Gold'.
