AUSTRALASIA’S premier trotting event, the Inter Dominion is headed back to Ballarat for the first time in 10 years.
And to celebrate, the Ballarat and District Trotting Club is partnering with Delacombe Town Centre to give primary school students a chance to be a apart of the event.
The club and the centre are running a colouring competition which will allow pupils to have their work displayed on a collage created by Ballarat artist Travis Price.
The work will be reincarnated into a pop art horse to be displayed at the course on race night December 4. Price said he would also be creating a 15m x 3m mural to be permanently displayed at the course.
Ballarat and District Trotting Club chief executive Paul Rowse said there had been a strong push to get young people involved in the racing during the Inter Dominion carnival which has returned to Victoria for the first time in a decade.
The Inter Dominion has been a permanent fixture on Australian and New Zealand race tracks since 1936.
