Shoalhaven City Turf Club will hold their biggest meeting of the year, this Sunday May 26. Kinghorn Motor Group Nowra Cup Girls Day Out features two of the best racing events on the SCTC calendar, the Nowra Cup and Belle of the South (fillies and mares).
CEO of SCTC, Lynn Locke, has witnessed the meeting go from strength to strength since its inception 10 years ago.
The day also holds a special place for the sponsors Kinghorn Motor Group, who have maintained their relationship with the meeting for 10 years.
“This is the biggest raceday on our racing calendar and it has grown every year,” Locke said.
“We have over $10,000 in prizes for the fashions on the field and we also have the 2104 NSW Firefighter calendar team as our special guests.”
With a specific focus on ‘Girls’ SCTC along with the Firefighters will give one lucky lady the chance to feature in next year’s calendar alongside the team as well as judging the fashion.
Included among the prizes are two Tag Heuer watches as well as a trip to Hamilton Island. And, if any lady should feel left out, be one of the first 400 to walk through the gate to receive a complimentary gift bag.
Nowra Cup day will also feature the final race in the Club’s Autumn Carnival series. Conducted over three Sunday meetings, a $2000 bonus awaits the lucky winner. Currently, Kerry Parker is sitting in the lead with 44 points, but eminent South Coast trainer Bede Murray is just behind on 38 with local dynamo Terry Robinson.
The feature race, Kinghorn Motor Group Sky Racing Gold Nowra Cup (1600m) will have a full field facing the starter with a number of top-class entries from South Coast trainers such as Bede Murray, Robert Price, Diane Poidevin-Laine and Gwenda Markwell.
Won by Zedlion (Jason Coyle) in 2012, the Cup is always a great attractor of quality horses.
Equally as impressive will be the race preceeding, the Kinghorn Ford 2013 Belle Of The South (1200m) which is restricted to fillies and mares.
Racecourse manager Chris Nation has been with the club for 12 months and has completely retransformed the track in that time with many commenting on the surface.
“We’ve had people coming to the track and one person said today that they had never seen the track look so good,” Locke said.
“Chris has just excelled, he’s got the track looking absolutely fantastic.”
