THERE will be plenty happening on and off the track at next Thursday's running of the Bendigo Hindsight race meeting at Bendigo Jockey Club.

Hindsight and the BJC have teamed up again for the fourth time to host this event at the Nursery of Champions.

Brendan Baker and Mark Segafredo have been key players in combining a thoroughbred race meeting and a charity day to make it one of the major meetings for the club.

During the past three years the BJC raceday has raised thousands of dollars for charity and in particular, Horizon house.

"The money has helped the young homeless people of Bendigo and this year's money will go towards a new house for homeless mums and bubs," said Horizon House chairman Robert Cook.

Vice-president of the Bendigo Jockey Club, Margot Falconer said the Hindsight Raceday had always been a great success.

"The BJC committee is delighted to be able to support  Hindsight and many local charities.”

There will be special guests at Thursday's function.

"Well-known football celebrity Campbell Brown will be here, along with leading comedian Peter Dee," said Brendan Baker.

The day is hosted by Bruce Clark from TVN.

Tickets for Thursday's meeting are available by contacting Jenny Rawiller on 5448 2409 or go to the course in Heinz Street, White Hills.
