Smoken Up's trainer Lance Justice has been very helpful in supporting the industry by making the champ regularly available for public appearances since "Trigger's" retirement in 2014.

His legion of fans turned out in droves for his final race track appearance in September 2014.

On Saturday night, night one of the TAB.com.au Summer of Glory carnival at Tabcorp Park Melton, fans will get to meet Smoken Up in the flesh and pose for a selfie with the brilliant racehorse.
