Bob Champion, legendary Grand National winning jockey and tireless international charity cancer fundraiser, will be the special guest of Oakbank Racing Club at the 2017 Easter Racing Carnival.
Mr Champion, whose personal battle against cancer was immortalised in the film Champions starring John Hurt, will also be the special guest at a lunch hosted by the Club and UBet at The Haus in Hahndorf on Sunday 16 April.
Adelaide racing legend John Letts will MC the lunch, and guests will have the chance to meet Bob Champion and learn more about his fascinating life and charity work, as well as his continued involvement in racing.
The canapè lunch begins at 12.30pm and is a ticket-only event. Drinks will be available at bar prices.
Lunch will be followed by the legendary UBet Oakbank Calcutta, prior to the running of the Great Eastern Steeplechase on Easter Monday. Entry to the Calcutta, which begins at 3.00pm, is free. A portion of the proceeds from both the lunch and the Calcutta will be donated to the Cancer Council.
