- Win big at the Gold Coast Stakes Raceday

February 27, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Big money is up for grabs at the Gold Coast Stakes Raceday next month.

A total prize pot of more than AU$400,000 is on the line at the event. Among the highlights are the AU$100,000 Queensland Carbine Club Gold Coast Stakes and AU$250,000 Queensland Thoroughbred Investment Scheme 2YO.

The packed bill offers plenty more than high-calibre racing, with the Fashions on the Field contest - which aims to find the best-dressed fans - likely to prove popular with avid style gurus.

Men and women can take advantage of free registration and nominate themselves for the competition to be in with a chance of bagging one of the top prizes.

The on-site Pamper Precinct allows ladies to enjoy mini massages, beauty tips and hair touch-ups, all at no extra cost.

Live music gives people the opportunity to take a break from the sporting action and have a boogie on the lawn.

The Stakes Raceday takes place on March 19th 2011 at the Gold Coast Turf Club, located just five minutes away from the beach at Surfers Paradise.

Various ticketing packages are available, with entry to the course, a selection of hot and cold food and reserved seating priced at AU$49 per person.

Racing fans looking for cheap accommodation in the area can visit, which recommends a wide array of Gold Coast hotels.
