Ladies are expected to flock to Rosehill Gardens this Saturday, 14 November for one of the most sociable days on the venue’s calendar, Cellarbrations Girls Day Out.
Australian Turf Club ambassadors MTV’s Carissa Walford and South Sydney Rabbitohs’ star George Burgess will be on course to kick off the festivities including introducing one of Australia’s hottest male dance troupe – Beat the Streets.
Carissa will also assist in the judging of the Style Stakes fashion competition presented by Cosmopolitan, which boasts a prize pool of $5,000. Registrations will open at 11.30am with the competition starting at 12.30pm on the trackside lawn in front of the JR Fleming Stand.
On the track, there are nine horse races on the program; however, the most hotly contested race of the day is sure to be the NSW Firefighters sprint race. The stars of the 2016 NSW Fire Fighters calendar will also be signing autographs and selling their calendar with all proceeds going to charity.
Australian Turf Club Chief Operating Officer Tony Partridge said Girls Day Out is an annual highlight on the Rosehill Gardens calendar.
“Cellarbrations Girls Day Out at Rosehill Gardens is a unique offering that has great appeal for both ladies and gents alike,” said Mr Partridge.
“We have a fun day planned for all racegoers which incorporates a fashion element, pamper areas, live music and entertainment, and of course, nine great races.
“The firies from the NSW Fire Fighters Calendar will also be on course selling their 2016 calendar. With all proceeds going to the Burns Unit at the Children’s Hospital Westmead, we are happy to show our support for such a great cause,” said Mr Partridge.
The day’s racing highlights include the $85,000 Cellarbrations Erindale Liquor November Topaz. Ten gallopers will face the starter including six-year-old Sir John Hawkwood who opened as the $4.60 TAB Fixed Odds favourite in a wide open market. The David Vandyke-trained gelding will resume following a short spell and will be partnered with Blake Spriggs.
Sir John Hawkwood will find competition in his lightly raced stablemate Prince Cheri ($5.00 TAB Fixed Odds) and Rosehill Gardens-based Moral Victory ($6.00 TAB Fixed Odds) for Tim Martin.
Interest also centres around the seventh race on the card, the $85,000 Cellarbrations Wyong November Handicap where Frespanol, trained by Gai Waterhouse, will be looking for back to back wins. The five-year-old currently sits as the $2.70 TAB Fixed Odds favourite.
Similarly, Centre Pivot ($7.00 TAB Fixed Odds) from the John Sargent stable will be looking to continue his winning form following a hard last start win at Rosehill Gardens.
Chris Waller-trained Disgraceful heads the acceptances in the $85,000 Cellarbrations Baulkham Hills Handicap. Opening at $5.50 on TAB Fixed Odds, the gelding will be in search of his fourth career win.
Danish Twist ($6.00 TAB Fixed Odds), who is trained by Kris Lees, will be the main threat boasting an impressive 44% winning strike rate. However Gamblestown ($9.00 TAB Fixed Odds) for Joseph Pride also looms as a strong danger being proven over the distance on the Rosehill Gardens track.
All general admission tickets booked at www.theraces.com.au before midnight on Friday will receive a complimentary flute of Chandon Brut Rosé.
Gates Open at 11.30am with the first race at 12.35pm.
