The live barrier draw for the $1m Race by Grins at Cambridge Raceway on April 14, will be conducted tonight.

The head of the Racing Integrity Board Mike Clement will be in the studio to oversee proceedings.

Cambridge Raceway will also tweet the barrier draws as they happen.

Unlike last year there will be an emergency drawn in the field so if there is a scratching that slot holder will get another horse to race in their slot.

Last year the Race by Grins had nine, instead of 10 starters, because of the scratching of Pembrook Playboy.

The ten horses for this year's edition of the The Race by Grins are :

B D Joe
Better Eclipse
Copy That
No Matter Wat
Nicholas Cage
Old Town Road
Self Assured
Triple Eight

At the moment there is limited hospitality available for the big night, with tickets to the Clubhouse bar costing $150 (dinner but not drinks) and $360 to the Skyline (premium all inclusive package).

General admission is about half sold, with hopes that the total attendance on the night will be around 5000.

There will also be a live performance from chart topping Kiwi singer-songwriter Mitch James.
