Townsville Bulletin - - FRONT PAGE - VIC­TO­RIA NU­GENT

THE crowds will hit Clu­den Park to­day for the big­gest day of the Townsville rac­ing sea­son.

Townsville Cup is ex­pected to draw a crowd of more than 7000 peo­ple, with num­bers still grow­ing.

Townsville Turf Club chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Cas­san­dra Caz­zulino said there were still plenty of tickets left but al­most all the mar­quee spa­ces were gone.

“Re­ally we’re on a knife’s edge of hav­ing al­most no mar­quee tickets; there are only a few left,” she said.

“That’s great be­cause we had in­creased our mar­quees by 30 per cent. Re­gard­less of the num­bers we’re hop­ing to get plenty of peo­ple out to en­joy the new Townsville Turf Club.”

The 18+ event will in­clude eight lo­cal races, an es­presso mar­tini bar, a gar­den party, fash­ions on the field and a de­signer show­case.

Miss World Aus­tralia Made­line Cowe will be back in town again as one of the fash­ions on the field judges.

Ms Caz­zulino said buses would run fre­quently to bring pun­ters out to the track and there was a lot of ex­cite­ment in the air.

Gates open at 10.30am. En­try is $ 30 and age con­ces­sions for $ 15.
