Gloucester Cup set to draw a crowd

KRAMBACH Race Club’s Gloucester Cup meet will be held at the Taree Wingham Racecourse next Tuesday, April 29.

The seven-race TAB meet always draws a large crowd with the feature event, the Gooch Agencies Gloucester Cup, to be run over 1250m.

Casey Gooch from Gooch Agencies said the business had been sponsoring the race meet for the past five years.

“It’s a great day out for everyone,” she said.

“It’s a good opportunity to get dressed up, let your hair down and catch up with people you might not have seen for a while.”

Newcombe’s will run a bus service from Gloucester to the racecourse for the meet.
