Big crowd tipped for this year's Casino Gold Cup

CASINO Racing Club is expecting strong attendance at Sunday's Express Examiner Casino Gold Cup, following the tremendous success of the Beef Week Cup in May.

The club's secretary/manager, Dianne Stanley, was pleased to announce the Gold Cup would feature three Casino runners.

Trainer Tom Pratt has entered Illawarra Flyer, ridden by Ben Looker, while trainer Leo Clapham has entered Global Rotation, ridden by Dallas Auckram, and Inaction, with no jockey yet listed by Racing NSW.

Ms Stanley was confident the Northern Rivers community would come together to cheer their hometown heroes over the line.

"We're expecting a really good crowd," she said. "Not as big as the Beef Week Cup, but that was huge.

"As well as the racing, which will be excellent, there'll be plenty of good food, a bar, bookmakers and full TAB facilities."

The cup will feature Fashions on the Field for children up to 12 years of age, with a $100 voucher prize, while the winner of the Ladies Fashions on the Field will win a $750 voucher from Pinkertons Hourglass Jewellers.

Ms Stanley said the club is encouraging families to attend and noted the Byron Bay KidzKlub will be there on the day.

Gates open at the Grafton Rd, Casino, venue at 10.30am.
