MORE than 500 punters and spectators passed through the gates at the annual Lockyer Valley Regional Council Cup on Saturday.
Lockyer Valley Turf Club president Terry Kirkwood said while attendance was down from previous years the event was still a great day out.
“It was a successful event,” Mr Kirkwood said.
The day featured eight horse races, including the main draw card, the Council Cup.
“It was very competitive racing here at Gatton, it always is,” Mr Kirkwood said.
Beaudesert jockey Brooke Ainsworth rode four winners and claimed her first ever cup.
