How will you spend Melbourne Cup Day in Mudgee?

Horse RacingHow will you spend Melbourne Cup Day in Mudgee?

Believe it or not, it’s nearly November, and that can only mean one thing… It’s almost time for the race that stops a nation!  Emirates Melbourne Cup Day is at the pinnacle of the Australian racing calendar.  Widely accepted as the best staying handicap race in the world, the Emirates Melbourne Cup delivers the best year after year, placing Australia on the international sporting podium for all to admire.

On the first Tuesday every November we all stop at 3pm to see who will take out the Cup.  Some like to study the guide and place their bets, others enjoy the spectacle of the whole day’s events, while some merely enjoy dressing up and getting involved in the fashions.  Whatever your reason for getting involved, it’s a sensational day to tizzy yourself up and have some fun, and can serve as the perfect way to show your appreciation of a great year to your staff.

What’s on this weekend in Mudgee?

Adam & Chandelle Woods, Mudgee RacesIf you live in Mudgee or are planning a visit to the region this weekend, you may be wondering how to take in the sights, tastes and excitement of Mudgee in just two days.  Here’s our suggestion…

This Saturday at Gooree Park experience a Gooree Park Cup Weekend Stud and Wine Tour Package.   Enjoy a guided tour through Gooree Park for an hour and a half, beginning at either 9am or 11am, then put your feet up and relax with mouth watering wine tasting session, accompanied by cheese and crackers.  Group bookings are able to be arranged, or just pay $25 per head and enjoy a day out with a loved one.

Once you’ve filled your Saturday unwinding and tantalising your tastebuds, you’ll be ready to partake in all the excitement of the track on Sunday.  Gooree Mile Race Day starts at 1pm at Mudgee Racecourse, and it promises to be a day jam-packed with racing action and entertainment.  As huge supporters of the Mudgee Races, our Professionals Mudgee Real Estate team would love to see all Mudgee residents down at the track enjoying the fun and sensational atmosphere Mudgee racing always provides.

Gooree Cup & Mudgee Dragons Weekend

We want to make a weekend of the Gooree Cup coming up in early May 2012, combined with first Mudgee Dragons home game at Glen Willow Oval the day before. Now that’s what we call a weekend of fun and entertainment!

Saturday the 5th of May is the Mudgee Dragons’ first home game of the season, and with the new developments that have taken place at Glen Willow, there’s bound to be a bit of a crowd. For those that are coming in to support the opposition, and for locals as well, it’s a great opportunity to stay on for the Gooree Cup race day on Sunday the 6th of May.

As part of Racing NSW’s “Saddle Up Sundays” campaign, the Gooree Cup is featuring all the trimming and pre-event glamour, including cocktail party, equine art exhibition, high tea and fashion parade, tours of Gooree Park Stud & Winery (sponsors of the event) and VIP race day lunch.

As part of the weekend of sport, local businesses are encouraged to embrace the atmosphere by decorating offices and shops in racing and/or Dragons theme during the week leading up to the events.

We would love to see the community actively promote the weekend of the 5th and 6th of May, and encourage family and friends to come along to support our local Mudgee Dragons team, as well as local racing at the Mudgee Racecourse. We’re passionate about both sports and hope to see you there! Now is the time to start organising travel, accommodation and what you’re going to wear or decorate your business in!
