Cup Eve meeting on its way
Corowa Race Club Secretary Sheridan Kay said she’s looking forward to hosting another Monday race meet on the eve of the biggest day on Australia’s racing calendar.
It’s one of the region’s biggest meetings and after a successful one on Cup Eve last year, the Corowa Race Club will again host a twilight meeting this year on Monday, Melbourne Cup Eve.
The TAB Twilight Meeting on Monday, November 5 will feature seven TAB races as well as the fun and excitement that a spring racing carnival brings.
“We are very excited to be racing again Melbourne Cup Eve, last year was a success and this year we have made a few changes that will make the day more enjoyable,” Ms Kay said.
“The Corowa races are always a fun day and, going through until 8pm this year, families can stay for tea and enjoy the live music after the races.”
There will be full Fashions on the Field competitions this year with an Under 17 boys and girls, Lady of the Day, Millinery and Best Dressed Couple category to be won. The main prize is a $1,000 CIRCA 1936 voucher.
There will be plenty of kids activities on offer plus there will be an undercover betting ring, full bar facilities and an exciting umbrella package that includes a race book and umbrella seating for $30, for those wanting to get the most out of their race day experience.
Racegoers will also be entertained on the day with music by Maurice Milani.
Getting to Corowa Racecourse is also easy with bus service to and from Sanger Street. For more information on the buses or to purchase a ticket for the race day event, visit corowaraceclub.com.au.
