STUDENTS IN CANBERRA AND YOUTHCARE CANBERRA RACE DAY


Spring racing in Canberra returns with some of the calendars exciting meetings and October is always a busy month to welcome back our valued sponsors and partners YouthCARE Canberra and Ray White Canberra for their annual race days. The YouthCARE Canberra Race day, now in its 5th year incorporating the Students in Canberra Race Day in its 3rd was a fantastic social day out and is aligned with the Club’s strategy to attract the younger generation to the races. Again, the day was well patronised by students attending, along with the sold out luncheons in the two function rooms.


The day included the Crust Gourmet Pizza Fashions on the field competition and the quality of entrants is no doubt a sign of things to come for the Myer Fashions on the field competition on ACTTAB Melbourne Cup Race Day.
