Fun, food, fashion and family vibes – the winter race day shaking up its offering
When it comes to the races, you might have some preconceived ideas about what to expect – you’ve got your horses, your high heels and your hors d’oeuvres, but what’s new there? It’s definitely not the sort of event you usually turn to for a family day out … or is it? Tattersall’s is turning the traditional race day formula on its head for its Tiara Race Day, galloping into the Doomben Racecourse on Saturday June 23 to bring food, fashion, fierce competition and family-friendly vibes all wrapped up in one huge day.
Despite the fact that it’s winter, Brisbane racing season continues to heat up – and the Tattersall’s Tiara Race Day is set to be a metaphorical scorcher. As well as all of the usual action on the track, this particular event is a true highlight in Brisbane’s sartorial calendar. Winter fashion is out in full force, so you’d better believe that the stakes for the Wintergarden and Tattersall’s Racing Club Fashions on the Field have been raised sky-high. Best-dressed ladies and gents can share in a host of mind-blowing prizes, including a trip to Singapore for the most impressive male and female entrants – so if there was ever a time to go all out, this is it.
While some people might typically not associate the races with kids, the Tattersall’s Tiara Race Day is making sure that the little ones are more than welcome at this event. Kids under 12 get in for free, and there will be a whole family area with free rides and entertainment to keep them well and truly occupied. Grown-ups who fancy a bit of betting action will be spoilt for choice with the Group 1 Sky Racing Tattersall’s Tiara Race, the Group 3 Lazy Yak and the Group 3 WJ Healy Stakes all being held on the day – now that’s a seriously stacked line-up of racing. This event isn’t just about the horses – the race day is being held in support of Legacy, so your proceeds are going to an excellent cause.
