Get ready for cup day

Seymour Telegraph - - SPORT -

As one of the premier coun­try cups in Vic­to­ria, the $150 000 Godol­phin Sey­mour Cup at­tracts many of the state’s lead­ing train­ers and jock­eys. And 2017 is no ex­cep­tion. But there is more to cup day than the horses be­cause it is also an op­por­tu­nity for a se­ri­ously so­cial day out — even the chil­dren are catered for.

Sey­mour Rac­ing Club chief ex­ec­u­tive Penny Reeve has in­vited ev­ery­one to come and ex­pe­ri­ence coun­try hos­pi­tal­ity with the mar­quee op­tions or en­joy watch­ing the races track­side on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 22.

‘‘At the Godol­phin Sey­mour Cup, there is fun for the whole fam­ily, with plenty of free chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties avail­able, Vic­to­ria Jane Millinery Fash­ions on the Field with guest judges and fan­tas­tic prizes for each cat­e­gory, live en­ter­tain­ment and food trucks,’’ Ms Reeve said.

‘‘Godol­phin Sey­mour Cup Day is a great way to en­ter­tain your fam­ily, friends and work col­leagues.

“A day out at the Godol­phin Sey­mour Cup is per­fect for all ages and all dif­fer­ent group sizes.

‘‘Dur­ing spring, Sey­mour race­course is a hive of ac­tiv­ity and you can get up close to the ex­cite­ment of the mount­ing yard, perch up at win­ning post to see your favourite horse cross the line, im­merse your­self in the iconic book­ies ring or sim­ply browse be­hind the scenes in the stalls to see our equine stars and their strap­pers pre­pare for the race.’’

Ms Reeve said the club was also op­er­at­ing shut­tle buses to and from the Sey­mour train sta­tion. Don’t miss next week’s
