Stanthorpe Races 19th Oct 2019
October 19 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
For every country racing enthusiast, a great day out combines the thrill and colour of racing with the opportunity to socialise in a relaxed outdoor carnival atmosphere.
Each spring the action moves to Stanthorpe’s Armstrong Park on the Granite Belt. Here in the Queensland wine capital, the Stanthorpe Cup has established a firm place on the annual social calendar for locals and visitors alike. The mix of keen racing, fashion, marquee lunches and the chance to sample some of Queensland’s finest wines are key elements of this big day out.
The Stanthorpe Cup is one of many Spring events held on The Granite Belt, so early booking is recommended.
Country racing has probably experienced more ups and downs over the years than any other sport, and the Stanthorpe club is no exception. In 1966, the club established a track at what was to become Armstrong park to the west of the town centre. This former Crown Land had been used as an emergency aerodrome in World War II.
