Races and high tea a great combination

THE Shoalhaven City Turf Club will be all class this Sunday for the Country Motor Company Hats and High Tea Race Day which will kick off the start of the Autumn Carnival.

Gates open at 11am for the seven race TAB meeting.

The Isuzu Ute Country Cup will be the feature race and will start at 2.55pm.

This race has attracted high quality horses with $17,000 up for grabs to the winner.

The Telstra Business Centre Nowra Trainers Premiership will also kick off and will run for the duration of the Autumn Carnival.

Trainers receive points for every starter as well as extra points for placings.

A $2000 cash bonus will be given to the most successful trainer from the three race meetings, concluding at the Nowra Cup on May 25. 

Shoalhaven City Turf Club CEO Lynn Locke said the feature race has attracted a myriad of great trainers and horses from around the area.

“The rail will be true and the track has been rated as a dead (4) so it’s looking really good for a great day of racing,” she said. 

But the day is not all about the horses.

Millinery is set to be the star of the day with the fashions on the field dedicated to hats and fascinators.

There will be prizes for fantastic fascinators, best headwear and best men’s headwear.

High tea will also be a popular feature and if you would like to be a part of this special option contact the turf club on 4421 4550 to pre book.

If high tea is not your thing, then people are encouraged to bring a picnic, drinks excluded. 

Entry to the turf club is $10 for adults, $5 for seniors, and children under 18-years-old with an accompanying adult is free.
