Sausage Dog Racing Is This Weekend's "Must Do" Event!

Bring on the cuteness!

Sausage dog racing is a thing and it's starting this weekend! 


Hophaus Southgate is launching Oktoberfest from Saturday, September 24 and their hugely popular Dachshund racing is returning. So cute!

The 'Hophaus Annual Dachshund Race’ is raising money for Dachshund Rescue Australia and will see over 70 dogs in 12 heats "run" along a 15 metre track (how darn cute is that!). 

The races are held at the Southgate Podium Level (next to St Johns & TAB), heats start at 11am, a Costume Parade at midday, more heats and then finals expected to start around 2-2.30pm. 

There’s even prizes for “Best Dressed”. Last year’s contenders for best dressed included a pilot, a tram and a lifeguard.

The five week program includes bier feasts, trivia nights and more. Bring on the cuteness!
