Spend summer trackside

WITH three race meetings in the space of the next 16 days, Coffs Harbour Racing Club is set to become one of the main centres of excitement over the holiday period.

The first of the three meetings is this afternoon when the Beach Party Raceday picnic meeting is being held with the Coramba Cup being the feature event of the day.

On Tuesday the only race meeting in the State will be held in Coffs Harbour while Sunday, January 11, will see what has already become one of the most popular events on the local calendar, the Pink Silks raceday.

On this day, the track has a totally pink theme - from the champagne right through to the colour of the saddle cloths. This day will again raise much-needed funds for local charities that provide support and care for local women such asBreastScreen North Coast, Palliative Care Coffs Harbour and Coffs Harbour Women's Health Centre.

Official proceedings this afternoon start just before 2.00pm with the first race but there's plenty of fun this afternoon for all the family with the local racing club organising free entry and entertainment for the kids.

With so much action happening, there's no excuse not to get trackside this holiday period.
