Cup runneth over at family event
Team Wealleans Matamata Cup Day is always a good day out and this year is shaping up to be no different.
Matamata Racing Club is hosting the day and there is sure to be something for everyone.
In addition to top class thoroughbred racing, there will be live music, entertainment, and great food on offer.
It is a 9-race programme, with stakes ranging from $12,500 to $15,000 in support races and a $50,000 feature race.
Top racehorses Xanadu and Bounding will be out on the track for exhibition gallops between races.
Xanadu won the Group 1 Windsor Park Plate and Bounding the Gold Trail Stakes at Hastings on September 21.
It is a family event and there will be free children’s entertainment, including a bouncy castle and a chair-o-plane.
If you are after a fun day out in the sun, head along to the Matamata Racecourse this Saturday.
