Time to organise your Melbourne Cup Day

THE Sunshine Coast Turf Club is gearing up for one of its biggest meetings of the year, Melbourne Cup Day.

Turf club CEO John Miller said the Melbourne Cup Day race meeting was one of the most popular race days.

"As a club, we are continually implementing concepts to improve our patrons race-day experience," Mr Miller said.

"This year, for the first time, we are offering The Social Lawn experience for patrons looking for an affordable and exclusive VIP race-day experience in a specially set-up courtyard, with live music, food and beverages, great views of the track and a relaxed vibe.”

Tamara Wrigley will be hosting the iStyle TV Fashions on The Field and is expecting more than 100 entrants on the day.

She said this year the prize pool was expected to be in excess of $10,000.

Danni Morrison continues in her role as an ambassador for the Sunshine Coast Turf Club.

"Danni's love of fashion and thoroughbred racing is the perfect combination to promote the Sunshine Coast Turf Club,” Mr Miller said.

”The Melbourne Cup functions invariably book out early, so we encourage anyone who is thinking of attending Corbould Park on Tuesday, November 6 to get organised early and book your function.”
