Launceston will host its last feature events of the season on Sunday at an eight-race meeting that has attracted 119 nominations.

There are four $30,000 races – the Tasmanian Sires Produce, Autumn 3YO Classic, Autumn Open Classic and Tasmanian St Leger.

The Sires Produce and St Leger are time-honoured events on the Tasmanian calendar.

Australian Hall Of Fame member Sydeston won the St Leger at his final start in Tasmania on March 11, 1989.

Other past winners include Mevron Boy and Pass The Baton who both contested the 1984 Melbourne Cup.

The 12 entries for the Sires Produce include five Gee Gee horses owned by Paul and Elizabeth Geard.

Despite numerous runners in recent years, the Geards are yet to win the race.

Trainers Barry Campbell and Terry Evans have each won three times in the past decade.

The final two Mowbray thoroughbred meetings of the season will be run on June 11 and July 2.
