Cup Week Festivities Set to Take Over Gawler

This year’s Holdfast Insurance Brokers Gawler Cup is set to be bigger than ever and now includes a whole week of festivities leading up to Cup Day!

Cup Week will kick off with the inaugural Coopers Cup Golf Tournament on Tuesday 24 October at the Sandy Creek Golf Club. Thursday evening will see the drawing of the Cup Calcutta at the Kingsford Hotel, while The Exchange Hotel will host the Cup Prelude Party on the Friday night. The Club will then host a Cup Eve Breakfast at the racecourse on Saturday morning which will feature some of the stars of the turf having their final hit out before the big day on Sunday.

Cup Day will be huge on and off the track with high quality races and plenty of entertainment and hospitality for all. The two feature races on the day are the $25k Crabb Shellgrit Gawler Sprint and the $50k Holdfast Insurance Brokers Gawler Cup. Both are always fantastic races featuring some of the states’ best gallopers.
