Race cup on tour at the pool
The 2015 Emirates Melbourne Cup Tour stops off at the Karratha Leisureplex on Saturday, September 12.
Bring along your camera and have your photo taken holding the People’s Cup for just a gold-coin donation to Telethon.
From 10am to 1pm at the Leisureplex there will be free entry poolside, an aquarun, market stalls, face painting, a sausage sizzle and a door prize of a three-month Karratha Leisureplex membership.
The GWN7 Doopa Dog will also make an appearance along with former jockey Wayne Harris.
Harris rode Jeune to victory in the 1994 Melbourne Cup.
This year the Emirates Melbourne Cup Tour will also be encouraging communities to upload photos with the cup to the Victorian Racing Committee’s social media platforms.
Entrants will have the chance to win a trip for two to Flemington Race Course for the Emirates Melbourne Cup.
Competition entries must be tagged with #PeoplesCup and #EmiratesMelbourneCup to be in to win.
