Attendance at the Gavan Podbury Seminars Geelong St Pats Cup is a great way to start your year in racing.
Being close to St Patrick's Day, a race meeting provides an opportunity for the punter and party-goer to start the year with some Irish Luck. While there are plenty of people dressed in Green and having fun in the marquees, there are serious race-goers frequenting the mounting yard and stalls, setting up a big win.
Party-goers can revel in the sounds of the live band, coordinating Irish music with more contemporary music - alll located on the Corporate Terrace lawn with good views of the finishing post. It is very easy to bet with a tote being provided plus a bookmaker on the lawn.
LATEST NEWS: The Club is offering a free trip for two persons to Dublin return, in economy, in conjunction with Geelong Travel. Entry is via the racebook coupon.
Marquees, Umbrellas and Party Marquees can be hired for an enjoyable day where you have a base to come back to. Catering and Drinks can be provided or you can bring you own food. Drinks packages are provided in the larger marquees.
