If you fancy dressing up in funky costumes and making a dash for cash, then the Leprechaun Novelty Race will hit the spot at the St Pat’s races.

The St Pat’s Vines Furniture One/Comfort Inn Crystal Leprechaun Novelty Race will be run at the end of the March 14 meeting and nominations are open.

Lindy Robins said committee members came up with the novelty race after watching the Dinosaur Race at an Adelaide race meeting.

“We saw that race and then we all got together and hatched it from there,” Ms Robins said.

“We found some leprechaun costumes and it’s all ready to go.”

Fellow committee members, Andrew Schmidt and Richard Thomas, will be organising it all on the day, and Brendon Martin will call the race.

Thanks to sponsors Vines Furniture One and Comfort Inn Crystal Motel, the winner will receive prize money of $1,000.

Nomination and indemnity forms are available from the St Pat’s office and online. They have to be filled out and returned by March 10 at 5pm. Noms cost $20.

If there are more than 10 nominations the committee will hold a draw to find the 10 runners.

The 100 metre dash will be run down the straight.
