Aug 08, 2017

The Murwillumbah Cup will be the first of the triple headers of Cup meetings on the Northern Rivers, & with the change of date to Friday the 25th of August, a bumper crowd is expected to be on course for all the entertainment, wetting the appetite ahead of the Ballina and Lismore Cups to follow in September.

The new major sponsor of the Murwillumbah Cup of 2017 is the Riverview Hotel, & the club is very proud to have this association.

A fantastic afternoon and evening is planned on course with gates opening at 11am and the first of eight races starting at 12.25pm.

Tursa Employment and Training will continue their support of racing on the Northern Rivers and in particular of Murwillumbah where they again sponsor the running of the Tursa Employment and Training Murwillumbah Newmarket race.

The afternoon racing will be heavily supported by trainers, jockeys and connections north and south of the border as they race for in excess of $185,000 in total prizemoney with the main race at 4.10pm.

The fun continues into the evening with sports commentator Mark Forbes entertaining the crowd through to 6pm, followed by the Mangrove Jack Band live on course until late.

Aussie Bouncin Bites will entertain the children, along with market stalls and fashions.
