My blog is all about the famous outback Australian National Heritage Listed City named Broken Hill, located in the state of New South Wales. I first visited #BrokenHill in 2002 and have returned many times since then. ilovebrokenhill.com will help you discover what's great about this historic mining city, where in the mid 1880's the line of lode, a rich ore body of silver, lead and zinc was found.

Today's the big day, Broken Hill's signature event for the year the St Patrick's Day Races 2014, held at St Patrick's Race Club, are underway and it's less than an hour until the main race - Race 6, the 'Clubs NSW and Keno Outback Cup'.

It's a 1600 metre Open Class race which runs at 4.10pm local Broken Hill time (4.40pm Melbourne time) and if you want to place a bet you'll need to head down to the track as it's not a TAB event.

The field is slightly smaller than last year which listed 11 horses including 1 scratching. Tresette won the race last year and Cruziero came 9th in the race. They both are racing again in today's race. Number 4 Defonet, won the Silver City Cup in October 2013, but this will be a harder race with a better field.

Details of today's field for the main race are -

1   Sky Raider (5)  Trainer - Mick Whittle, Jockey - Dylan Dunn (a4) 60kg
2   Tresette (2)  Trainer - Annette Morrison, Jockey - Murray Henderson 54kg
3   Azarax (6)  Trainer - Rodney Robb, Jockey - Michael Hackett 54kg
4   Defonet (4)  Trainer - Paula Trenwith, Jockey - Ms Tamara Zanker 54kg
5   Cruziero (9) Trainer - Kym Healy, Jockey - Kate Brookes (a2) 54kg
6   Eight Red (8) Trainer - Kym Healy, Jockey - Wayne Kerford 54kg
7   Belchuca (1)  Trainer - Brian Searle, Jockey - Justin Potter 54kg
8   Artistic (7)  Trainer - Con Kelly, Jockey - Desiree Stra (a2) 54kg
9   Mild Mannered (3)  Trainer - Scott Whittle, Jockey - Jack Martin (4) 54kg

The Barrier Daily Truth's (BDT) tipster 'No Idea' is tipping Sky Raider, Defonet and Eight Red.

Sky Raider goes in as a $2 favourite.
