Hamish & Andy’s Race that Slows Down the Nation happens this arvo. The small Victorian country town of Wedderburn has been taken over to see 50 people line up for Australia’s Richest Horse Suit Race.

H&A for weeks have been building the momentum for #‎ThePeoplesRace around the Wedderburn track. They have had the locals on board since day, checking in each day to see how preparations were going and even leading WIN Television Local news last week. Where it has also been driven home is with their listeners. From making form guides and posters available, even down to sweepstakes and profiling each member of the 50 person Horse Suit strong field.

“Horses” from as far away from Mackay have made the trek south for the big race this afternoon. “Pumper” has North Queensland behind it.

While the boys will be live this afternoon with the race at 4pm, the festivities started yesterday at the local pub. 

This morning the street parade was in full swing

When even a quick google gives it the top ranked result, you are doing something right…. that other race, yeah it’s on tomorrow
