Crowd races to Old Priory Cup
TUESDAY’S Victoria Racing Club spring racing carnival and its Melbourne Cup may have been a few hundred kilometres away but distance was no barrier to Cup Day celebrations in Beechworth.
More than 80 racegoers gather at the Old Priory to enjoy the festivities and watch the live broadcast race.
In between the gallops they were entertained by the Kissin’ Cousins and their superlative interpretation of bluegrass and old time music.
BUBBLING: Beechworth’s Eileen and Steve Wallace from Barnsley House B&B enjoyed a glass of sparkling in the spring gardens of the Old Priory.
