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.
