Punters can take in all of the action of the Caulfield Cup and The Everest at the Townsville Turf Club’s Winning Post Sports Bar on Saturday.
Doors open at 11am with live coverage of Caulfield kicking off with the first race at 11.15am and the Cup due to jump at 4.15pm.
The Everest meeting at Randwick will start soon after at 11.30am with the big sprint set down for 3.15pm.
Club general manager Natalie Rintala said the club was already taking bookings for one of the biggest days on the Australian racing calendar.
“Saturday is obviously a huge day in Australian racing and what better way to enjoy all the action than here at the Winning Post Sports Bar with the big screen, great food, full bar service and TAB facilities all in air-conditioned comfort,” Ms Rintala said.
“Our service also continues long after the races for people who want to stay on, or those who come a little later for dinner, with bistro meals available from 5.30-8.30pm. We'll also be offering a special addition to our menu, with sliders and beer tasting paddles available."
“We encourage people to book ahead because of the Covid restrictions by contacting the club on 47782400.”
The refurbished Winning Post Sports Bar and upstairs members’ facilities are part of the turf club’s $12 million redevelopment and have been attracting rave reviews since opening in early August.
Work at the course has also included the construction of new jockey and stewards facilities and the restoration of the club’s historic grandstand which is nearing completion.
