Visiting student doctors training at the local hospital will get their first taste of the St Patrick's races this weekend.

University of South Australia students Eamon Patrick Raith and Imogen Steketee arrived in the city on February 4, and have been training with the local health service in a number of different fields. The duo and their colleagues have a picnic site booked for the city's biggest race day, and are looking forward to enjoying all the races have to offer.

Eamon, whose grandfather is Irish, said he had already heard a number of good reports about St Pat's. "We'll be there with all the other junior doctors, we've heard that it's great fun," he said. "It's meant to be a great day and the whole community gets behind it.

"We're looking forward to meeting a lot of new people, enjoying some R and R, and just catching up with a few friends."
