Why you should attend The Shootout

Everything you need to know ahead of The Shootout this Saturday at Sandown Park

The Shootout

Dream Chasers

15 Nov

There’s plenty of anticipation ahead of Wednesday’s announcement of the $72,500 Group 3 Shootout field.

A four-dog battle of speed over 515 metres, The Shootout is the main event at Sandown Park on Saturday – Night Two of the $4.1m Dream Chasers Festival.

Let’s all walk 10 paces and draw a huge breath!

This is going to be bigger than the Gunfight at the OK Corral.

Who will come out with ‘all guns blazing’?

But the $50,000 question is: who will be the ‘gunslingers’?

However, the ‘guns for hire’ aren’t the whole attraction…
