A big day planned at Bowen races

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

ONE of Whit­sun­days most iconic horse rac­ing events re­turns to Ben Bolt Park in Bowen this Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 4.

The Bowen Cup is a long­stand­ing so­cial af­fair that sees women dress­ing to the nines and men look­ing as dap­per as ever.

Bowen Turf Club pres­i­dent Cyril Vains said the day will be jam-packed with com­pet­i­tive rac­ing and some lovely sights.

“Its coun­try rac­ing at its best and it’s great to see ev­ery­one come and dress up for each other and the day.

“It’s al­ways a day of top class rac­ing, fash­ion, fun and coun­try hos­pi­tal­ity – that’s what we are all about,” he said.

He said Satur­day will be one of the busiest races the club has hosted with more tents and mar­quees booked than ever be­fore.

En­try is $15 on the day and there a num­ber of pack­ages and bus deals avail­able on Whit­sun­day Tick­ets.

For $135 a Bowen Race day pack­age for Air­lie Beach res­i­dents is avail­able.
