Casterton FoodWorks Cup Day has firmly established itself as a “must attend” race meeting in regional Victoria. Taking place on Sunday 19 May, this race meeting will have something for everyone.
The young racegoers will have their own playground area, complete with a raft of free kids’ activities.
Meanwhile, fashionistas will get the opportunity to strut their stuff, and compete for over $5,000 worth of prizes in Fashions on the Field.
Club Manager John Donnelly says that this is a race day that the racing purists will also love.
“When Bendigo lost the Mosstrooper, we put in for it. We didn’t get it, but we were given the Pullen & Co Two Rivers Steeplechase worth $75,000.”
Casterton is renowned for its jumps racing, and its steeplechase course has a unique point of difference.
“We don’t have moveable jumps. They’re all live hedges, which is something you don’t see at any other race track. The main attraction here is the steeplechase course, and the 3800m is perfect for jumping,” says Donnelly.
The Club expects around 2,000 people to attend their feature race day, and limited tickets remain to their marquee and hospitality options.
