RAC­ING CAL­EN­DAR SET TO SHOW­CASE SOME OF THE BEST

Now is the time to plan your days out - and what out­fit to wear ( and that goes for the guys too)

Bundaberg Style - - RACING -

BUND­ABERG Race Club’s Shanyn Lim­pus is ready for plenty of heart-thump­ing ac­tion as the lo­cal rac­ing cal­en­dar starts show­cas­ing some of the best rac­ing ac­tion of the sea­son.

Shanyn said the Mel­bourne Cup con­tin­ued to be the most pop­u­lar race day of the year, and is one of the best at­mos­pheres for ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the race that stops the na­tion.

“This can be seen in the fact that all pri­vate ar­eas are nearly sold out for this event, but there are still ta­bles for six to 10 peo­ple avail­able in the pub­lic mar­quee for $85 per per­son,” she said.

“The races are def­i­nitely a great day out here lo­cally and spring and sum­mer race days are very pop­u­lar due to the com­bi­na­tion of warmer weather and fun fash­ions.”
