“Being part of July racing is being part of Grafton and to kick off the carnival is an honour,” says Jim Dougherty, Board Chairman of Westlawn. “It is low key for everyone to have some black and gold on and enjoy the day — or of course to dress to the nines if you’re feeling the spirit.”
If you’re feeling the spirit, we invite you to dress in black and gold (the colours of Westlawn). Put together your finest outfits or be comfortable with a splash of gold (a tie or a flower, or a peek of a handkerchief, perhaps). Come and enjoy our Fashions on the Field parade — if you’d like to enter, there are major prizes to be won. (Last year, the first prize was an accommodation package from Jester Hill Wines.)
Throughout the day, there will be activities for children and our beloved Wally is be on the course for hellos and hugs with the kids (and the adults!)
We’re honoured to once again have the incredible Jester Hill Wines in attendance with wine tastings and perhaps even a presentation for wine and food lovers.
We hope you can join us — we’d love to see you there!
Please give us a call if you have questions. Westlawn’s Black and Gold Race Day is on Thursday, July 5. Admission is free and all are welcome to all Members bar and grandstand for all racegoers. For details, please visit at www.westlawn.com.au/graftonprelude
