Coffs Harbour Racecourse will turn pink this Sunday (8th January) on an afternoon that promises to be a fun celebration of life.
The 11th annual Coffs Harbour Racing Club’s Pink Silks Ladies Day will have a total PINK theme - from the champagne right through to the horses’ saddle cloths.
With entertainment for the kids, Fashions on the Field, as well as all the action trackside of a seven-race TAB program, it will be a great day out for all.
Once again the Club will run a ‘lady riders only’ race; the Fillies and Mares Benchmark 60 Handicap over 1300m. Local fashion house La Dain Designs has kindly donated jewellery items for the lady riders that finish in the top three placings.
The Wayne Glenn Pink Silks Cup over 1200m is the feature race of the day with Townsville visitor One Bar None looking to hold off the local hopes of Bonne Cheval, Ekibuuka and Oakfield Invader.
This highlight of the Coffs Harbour Racing calendar is to improve awareness of local women’s health issues and raise much-needed funds for local charities, projects and equipment. With over $550,000 raised over the last 10 Pink Silks Ladies Days, the club’s goal is raise even more funds in 2017 for local organisations that support local women.
Everything from race sponsorship to gourmet buffet hospitality packages are being sold to help raise funds for the chosen charities.
Once again there is a monster charity auction held after the last race, with items including an ATC Corporate package that includes a day at Gai Waterhouse’s stables, an ANZ Stadium Corporate box for 16 people, signed Winx memorabilia including a framed print, hat and shirt, a Brisbane racing package including flights, accommodation and hospitality and many more fantastic items.
