what: t-rex races/fashion comps
The 2019, Inaugural Compassionate Stakes featured compassionate Canberran's, racing in giant inflatable T-Rex costumes - making horse racing cruelty ancient history!
Fashionistas participated in Fashion Off The Fields competition, "If Looks Could Not Kill."
Information about horses and animal racing was available, a vegan sausage sizzle, plant-based sausage rolls from Herbisaurus, baked goods from Tivkah's Bakery prizes and entertainment abound.
We will be back in 2020!
Where: CANBERRA CITY
2020 Location TBC
when: T-REX tuesday is held on the first Tuesday of November
Until Horse racing is banned in the ACT, we will continue to provide this cruelty free alternative.
2020 Time TBC
why: having fun shouldn't involve cruelty
One horse dies on Australian race tracks every three days. More and more people are deciding that entertainment that relies on others having a terrible time is no fun. We all enjoy getting dressed up and having a good time with friends, but watching animals suffering is no-one's cup of tea.
