The 43-year history of the Gooree Park Cup will be celebrated by Mudgee Race Club this Sunday (7th May) as the club stages another fabulous thoroughbred race meeting.
As with the tradition of this historical race meeting, the highly contested Gooree Cup will attract quality trainers, horses and racegoers from all over the state, guaranteeing another prestigious event in 2023.
“Mudgee Race Club is proud of the long-standing relationship with Gooree Park and the Cojuangco family and we enjoy nothing more than joining forces to host the annual Gooree Park Cup each year,” said Damien Toose, Mudgee Race Club's CEO.
“Country race clubs like Mudgee thrive not only on being a fundamental component of the local community, but also in our invaluable associations with the local horse racing community and the 43-year plus association between Mudgee Race Club and Gooree Park.
"It is a great example of mutual respect and a reciprocated appreciation for our roles in the local thoroughbred racing industry."
Gooree Park Wines Manager, Brendon Cocks said: “Not only is The Gooree Park Cup a renowned day of racing and our chance to celebrate the area's rich thoroughbred breeding and training history, but as always, it a time when we can remember with warmth and respect, Gooree Park’s founder, Mr Cojuangco who passed away in 2020.
“In addition to commemorating Mr Cojuangco and celebrating our racing and breeding assets each year, the Gooree Park Cup is also a significant opportunity for us to showcase our award-winning wines, whilst enjoying time with our valued sponsors and supporters."
Fashions on the Field will be another highly contended event on Sunday with great prizes on offer for winners in the Ladies, Mens, Couples and Best Millinery categories.
