The race that stops the Mudgee region

December is fast sneaking up on us and in Mudgee it’s an annual tradition to welcome the start of summer with a day at the Mudgee Cup races.

This year’s Mudgee Cup takes place on Friday 5 December at the Mudgee Race Course, which is one of the premiere country destinations for horse racing in New South Wales.

The cup is a massive event for the Mudgee region, attracting a crowd of thousands every year, and it’s a great opportunity to dress up, watch live horse racing and have a fun time with friends.

It’s also a popular place to celebrate work Christmas parties, so you will always find it’s a great opportunity to mix and mingle with local businesses in the area who are enjoying a day off work and a great spot under the marquees.

The team at Professionals Mudgee Real Estate are looking forward to this year’s Mudgee Cup and we hope to see plenty of friends at the event, who will hopefully pick a winner or two on the day.

If you’re a bit of a wine connoisseur or fancy a nibble on great foods made from locally produced goods, then Mudgee’s Go Grazing event should definitely be on your calendar! Not only will you find Mudgee’s regional wines from leading winemakers, you’ll also find some of the best matching foods to go with quality selections of red and white wines, not to mention the glass of bubbles you receive on arrival to the event.

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!

The Famous “Go Grazing” Event In Mudgee

We love the slogan: “It’s famous for a reason.” It epitomises the atmosphere felt at Mudgee’s Go Grazing event, which is coming up in April, so pop it in your diaries and on your calendars.

Go Grazing obviously provides tastes of local Mudgee wineries and producers, but there’s much more to it than that! It also showcases the amazing talents that some of our local chefs have as well in creating tasty morsels from quality local ingredients.

Hosted at the Mudgee Racecourse (one of our favourite places in Mudgee of course) from 6:30pm on Saturday the 23rd of April, it is another of Mudgee’s must-attend events of 2011. Tickets are $70 per person and can be purchased from the Mudgee Visitors Information Centre in person, over the phone or online – our advice, don’t miss out, purchase yours early!

With 11 wineries involved in the event, there’ll definitely be a red wine, white wine or sparkling that will take your fancy, we’re sure of it. Add to that the flavours created by 10 incredible chefs and kitchens from throughout the Mudgee region, it would be almost impossible to walk away without feeling truly satisfied.

With the support of local businesses throughout the Mudgee region, we can’t wait to be sharing some great times with family and friends at Go Grazing this year! Visit the Mudgee Wine website for more information!
