Spring car­ni­val fun heads to the Isaac re­gion as Mo­ran­bah hosts its race day

Daily Mercury - - PEOPLE -

A BUMPER crowd is ex­pected to show up to­day as spring rac­ing fever hits Mo­ran­bah.

The gates at Trea­sure Park will swing open for what is one of the big­gest days on the lo­cal rac­ing cal­en­dar, the Mo­ran­bah Race Club Spring Car­ni­val, and it’s shap­ing up to wel­come its largest crowd to date.

The fam­ily-friendly day will in­clude lo­cal races, fash­ions on the field and the en­ter­tain­ing ‘men’s undies race’ along with a jump­ing cas­tle for the kids and live mu­sic by Out Of Our Trio.

The fea­ture event of the race pro­gram will be the $10,000 Isaac Re­gional Coun­cil Class B Cup hand­i­cap over 1400 me­tres.

Mayor Anne Baker said Isaac Re­gional Coun­cil is proud to be the ma­jor spon­sor as part of a three-year fund­ing agree­ment through the Isaac Com­mu­nity Grants pro­gram.

“Race days are a great op­por­tu­nity for res­i­dents to glam up a lit­tle, meet with friends or neigh­bours and have some fun cheer­ing on the horses and jock­eys,” Mayor Baker said.

Trea­sure Park gates open at 11am and tick­ets are $15. Buses run fre­quently through­out the day be­tween the Mo­ran­bah Com­mu­nity Work­ers Club and Trea­sure Park.
