“It’s an exciting period for the club as our soon to be completed projects come to hand in the coming months with both the Grandstand and Silks Club when completed, offering a greater experience for attendees across the ticketing packages”, Dixon said.

“The new grandstand will have all the comforts of comparable facilities of other major racing jurisdictions around the country with expansive views of the racecourse, corporate boxes, large dining spaces including outdoor viewing decks, all in an air conditioned facility.”

The Silks Club will also represent another area in which to enjoy all the comforts of trackside viewing of the Cup Carnival.
