The Bendigo Jockey Club will shout the bar at the racecourse until the start of the next race after iron horse Gotta Take Care won its third straight Brendan Drechsler Hurdle.
The Darren Weir-trained gelding proved too strong for Wells and Stand To Gain to win the first feature event on today's Mosstrooper Steeplechase Race Day.
A big crowd roared as the nine-year-old stormed home to win by more than two lengths.
The win took Gotta Take Care's career prizemoney past the $1 million mark.
To mark the win, the BJC will shout the bar with free drinks for 35 minutes.
More to come...
