Murray Bridge Racing Club
Carlton Draught Murray Bridge Gold Cup
The lights are on, and we’re racing…..to the Murray Bridge Gold Cup
The Murray Bridge Racing Club will be conducting the 42nd Murray Bridge Gold Cup in 2020 which will be held at South Australia newest and best racing facility at Gifford Hill. The Gold Cup will be held again on a Friday, this assisted with increasing patronage of an already fantastic day. Friday 16th October 2020 will be the date for this year’s Gold Cup and the continued change to a Friday will allow the Club to maintain its corporate style whilst making the day more accessible to the general customer to attend this great event.
The 2020 Carlton Draught Murray Bridge Gold Cup will be different due to COVID restrictions but the State of Art facilities and its spacious event centre still allows for us to provide hospitality on the day but with reduced numbers based on spacing restrictions. Obviously, the club will be approved to conduct a COVID event and will be exercising all its responsibilities with respect to health safety to our patrons.
Please note the 2020 Carlton Draught Murray Bridge Gold Cup will be operating in conjunction with the current COVID-19 restrictions at the time of the event. At the time of compiling the package brochure was based on COVID-19 restriction stage 3:
- Capacity calculations to 2m2 per area
- All patrons are required to be seated to consume food and beverages
- Contact tracing will apply.
- 1.5M social distancing obligations continue to apply
- COVID hygiene practices to still be applied
Further amendments to COVID-19 restrictions may require changes to be made to certain aspects of any packages. The Murray Bridge Racing Club reserves the right to alter aspects of the package based on complying with COVID-19 Restrictions at the time of the event and the financial impact of such changes. We advise you to consider the risk of COVID-19 and associated government measures before confirming your attendance.
The Carlton Draught Murray Bridge Gold Cup will continue to be run for over $100,000 prize money. Overall our Gold Cup Day will boast over $250,000 in prize money. It has shown in the last couple of years that this assists us in attracting horses from interstate which is beneficial for the region. The “Listed” status of the Carlton Draught Murray Bridge Gold Cup is an internationally recognised status which further cements the quality of the event on the Australian racing calendar.
There will be several different tiers of hospitality packages, ranging from un-catered marquee sites to fully catered packages with a special touch. These packages are Carlton Draught Marquee, Lux Lawns, Private Marquees and General Admission. (Please Note that all tickets must be pre purchased before the day online or via to Murray Bridge Racing Club.)
