The South Australian government has confirmed that, in 2006, the Adelaide Cup Day public holiday would be shifted to the second Monday in March.
The proposal for the change was made by the South Australian Jockey Club, following the Adelaide Cup having been rained out for the second year in a row (21-May-2004).
