Upcoming Albury Races Events

March 26th, 2010

The Albury Racecourse is hosting its highly anticipated Commercial Club Albury Gold Cup Carnival at the moment, which draws in thousands of spectators and punters for the fantastic racing on the track, but just as importantly the fantastic atmosphere the Carnival produces.
The Carnival is regarded as one of the nation’s most elite country racing events, and located in such a beautiful part of Australia, draws crowds from near and far to take part in the fun.

The Carnival is regarded as one of the nation’s most elite country racing events.

Having won the ‘Most Popular Country Feature Racemeeting’ five times; 2003, 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2009 – the popularity of the event cannot be disputed.

Starting on Thursday the 25th of March, the Carnival culminates this afternoon with the Juicy Cow – Pura Milk Benchmark 70 Handicap (1175m), which will see 19 starters.

Taken just as seriously as the action on the track, the Myer fashions on the field is another prolific event in the carnival; and this year there are three great divisions.

The MYER Millinery Award, the MYER Man of the Day and the MYER Lady of the Day are all awarded based on originality and appropriateness for the day’s events, and always provides a lot of fun and entertainment among the spectators.
The major prize for 2010 is three nights’ accommodation in the Hayman Island for two. Valued at $3,800 – the Fashions on the Field should certainly be taken seriously!

If the trip is too far for you this year, the Carnival will certainly be taking place next year, or to feel like you are at the track – place a wager on the last of the races which take place today and head to Ladbrokes.com.au now!
