Rose City celebs vie for top spot in Buchner Cup race

THE best of Rose City's celebrities will take to the start line tonight and battle it out for the prized Buchner Cup in the celebrity horse race.

Stuart Bond Real Estate auctioneer Mal Sheard will hold the microphone for the fourth year in a row.

"It is just a bit of fun and a good volunteer job to have," he said.

"Last year there was a bit of speculation involving the spotted dog.

"Someone in the crowd picked him as the wild card and then he won."

Mr Sheard said the slate would be wiped clean for this year's race.

"There will be no favouritism in this race," he said.

"It will be fair and square."

Daily Dalmatian will be fighting hard for the win to become the first ever competitor to win four times.

The races will start at 7.45pm with three heats of four competitors followed by the final with the three winners plus a 'People's Choice' runner.
