Excitement and anticipation have already begun to build for the $100,000 Dubbo Cup taking place mid-way through September, but the first step along the journey is taking place this Friday, August 16 as the Turf Club hosts a Cup Prelude race.
The centrepiece of the Commercial Hotel Sporting and Business Community Race Day, the headlining Cup Prelude will also be accompanied by a Cup Sprint prelude as well, and both will have opportunities for trainers looking to secure a big win in September.
Participants can gain access into the cup and the sprint race which are both very good opportunities.Vince Gordon
"It certainly is drawing interest around the region, the winner of this prelude is exempt from balloting out of the cup, so it's a good bonus for them to win, the sprint race winner is also exempt," Turf Club President Vince Gordon said.
"Participants can gain access into the cup and the sprint race which are both very good opportunities."
Gordon encouraged everyone to come along for a race day that was shaping up to be a banner community event.
"It's certainly going to be a good day sponsored by the hotel and it's a very community focused day for us, we're really excited," Gordon said.
