Spring is in the air at Stanthorpe

The Stanthorpe Jockey Club’s Annual Cup Day is a much anticipated event, which this year will be held on October 20.

Coming out of an extremely cold winter, the spring raceday is a celebration of the start of the busiest time of the year for the district, and locals and visitors alike enjoy a great day out at Armstrong Park.

More than 2000 punters are expected to walk through the gates to be greeted by marquees, bars, canteen and at least 12 bookmakers on course.

In a major boost for the club, a heat of the Country Cups Challenge will be run as the K & A Building Stanthorpe Cup Open over 1400m. A strong support card guarantees a great day of racing.

The Cup is a $12,000 event supported by four $8000 races. The winner of the Cup will be eligible for the final to be held at Doomben on December 1. The Stanthorpe Jockey Club is anticipating great fields for what will be a fantastic day’s racing
