Seymour Racing Club will this Sunday host the Seymour Cup, the first time in four years the event will return to the venue.

With gates opening at 11am, the cup day will feature a full card of racing as well as a wide range of activities, entertainment and race day packages to cater to all visitors.

Chief executive Chris Martin said Seymour was excited to be able to host the cup once again.

“We’re all very excited of course and a little bit nervous. I’ve only been in the chief executive role for about four months, so there’s a little bit of trepidation there, but also a lot of excitement,” he said.

“Everything’s going according to plan, the weather forecast is looking for us, and there’s really a little bit of something for everyone.”

The club’s two restaurants are already booked but there are plenty of other options on course for race-goers.

Entertainment includes comedian Evan Hocking as master of ceremonies, a DJ from 4.30pm, as well as Kelly Sports offering a range of childrens’ activities including a jumping castle, and fairy floss.

Also included is a new spin on the traditional fashion show called ‘style spotting’, where a representative from Seymour fashion shop Elsie and Florence will roam the crowd and pick out the best-dressed visitors.

Mr Martin said the club was anticipating many leading trainers and jockeys would take part in the $200,000 Seymour Cup race.

“It’s not only for the club, it’s just a wonderful thing to do for the community and our broader region of the Mitchell Shire and Nagambie,” he said.

“To have your main race back up and running, I think is really valuable considering we’re a year on from the floods and everything that happened there.

“Everyone’s very excited, the track’s in great condition, so it’ll be perfect come Sunday.”
