CROWDS took to the track for the the second Morven race meet for the year on Saturday.

Normally the Morven Race Club only hosts one race meet a year but after wet weather washed out last year's event, the club decided to schedule two for 2017.

Travellers and locals stopped in to enjoy all the race-day action at the track.

There was a six-race program with bookies on the course along with the Sky Race Channel.

There was also entertainment for the kids and a bar keeping the adults' thirsts quenched.

Racegoers dressed in their best race attire for the chance to take out Fashions on the Field, with more than $3000 in prizemoney up for grabs.

Music was played until late with DJ Curley.
