Miss World Australia Announcement

“The Townsville Turf Club is thrilled to announce Miss World Australia Madeline Cowe as the Winter Racing Carnival Ambassador for 2017”

 “Madeline is an outgoing, passionate North Queenslander who was raised on a cattle and cane farm in Tully, “ She is simply delightful, loves fashion and can brighten any room with her smile” Said Townsville Turf Club CEO Cassandra Cazzulino

The Three Hearts fashion blogger, Law student and Miss World Australia and Oceania will attend the Ladies Race Day Coffee Club Marquee on the 22nd of July and will work closely with The Fashion Festival on the ‘Fashions on the Field’ judging panel, at the Mater Townsville Cup on the 29th of July.

Miss Cowe was in Townsville recently enjoying a tour of the Townsville Turf Club and getting up close and personal with The Mater Townsville Cup hopeful, local racehorse ‘Thurston’. Thurston, who was named after North Queensland Cowboys Captain Johnathan Thurston and trained by local iconic trainer Errol Sewel, is in preparation for the fast approaching Winter Racing Carnival this July. 

 “We are ramping up our Winter Carnival preparations and this year, patrons can expect more energy, more fashion and more fun with the general admission area being a strong focus. We are creating more of a festival feel during the jam packed racing program and Madeline is a wonderful part of our planned new energy which will sweep across our Carnival season this July” said Cassandra.

‘We recently hosted a fashion shoot with Madeline’s grace captured by multi award winning photographer Matthew Gianoulis and her dress hand crafted by local designer Peter C Designs. We had an amazing team behind the shoot and we hope everyone loves the new look Townsville Turf Club’ said Cassandra.
