As the TAB Summer Carnival approaches, it is a timely opportunity to remind participants of the required dress standard at Saturday night meetings. 

RQ in conjunction with the Albion Park Harness Racing Club are looking for participant support to assist raising the profile and image of the sport in Queensland. 

Across the three nights of the carnival, on-course attendances will significantly increase while live showcase coverage will feature via numerous SKY Racing platforms. 

Looking forward, RQ and the Club are seeking to further showcase feature events via Free To Air, where presentation of our product will be critical. 

The dress code, supported by QRIC and BOTRA, for the Carnival is as follows:
