It’s that time of the year when all Mudgee residents feel the buzz of excitement in the air, and all the talk on the street is of one very special Mudgee event… That’s right – it’s time for the Mudgee Cup!
This Friday, December 6, the Mudgee Cup will be run in front of a crowd of thousands, who gather each and every year to celebrate Mudgee’s unofficial public holiday. It is by far the biggest race day on the region’s calendar – and why wouldn’t it be?! It’s a day of fun, fashion and partying. Many of our local Mudgee businesses choose the Mudgee Cup as the venue for their office Christmas parties, with marquees lining the straight as far as the eye can see. There really is nothing else like it anywhere in the region.
The Mudgee Cup is worth a whopping $30,000 in prize money this year, and there are a few local trainers in the mix for the 1600m feature race – Max Crockett with Lancelot, Brett Thompson with Excited Lover, and Tracey Bartley with Strace. All have been super impressive in recent races, and our team at Professionals Mudgee Real Estate know it would be a great thrill to see one of our local trainers take out ‘The Cup’. Of course it’s fresh in our memories that the past two Mudgee Cups were won by locally owned Spy Zaim, trained by Tracey Bartley… wouldn’t it be great to add another Mudgee name to the winners list!
We hope to see all our Mudgee friends out celebrating this fantastic Mudgee event, and hopefully picking a winner or two along the way.
Will you be at the Mudgee Cup this Friday?
