Wild and icy conditions are likely to shift off without well before the Sapphire Coast Turf Club's six race Winter Sun Festival race card this Sunday.
Club secretary-manager Rob Tweedie said conditions on course will still lean into the heavy ratings, but said more than 60 acceptances are used to those conditions.
"It's been a wetter than average year so a lot of horses racing here would be used to those conditions by now."
The field will feature some of the regular trainers and emerging new faces, but the highlight for organisers is welcoming everyone to the coast for the Winter Sun Festival.
"What we try and do is work in with the community to draw people to the area and if we can do that in any way by giving our patrons that information, we're happy to.
"We're highlighting the Winter Sun Festival for people to get down to the coast and be part of those festivities," Mr Tweedie said.

"We've got 140 guests booked in from Canberra and Sydney into the sponsors area and it's great to bring a lot of people to the district and see them take part in those additional festivities."
Everyone is welcome with gates open at noon with a full kiosk and bar available.
Free buses will run to and from the track with pick up and drop off times and locations on the club's website at www.sapphirecoastturfclub.com.au.
The Turf Club is located off Sapphire Coast Drive north of Merimbula.
