It’s just three months until the Channel Seven Ipswich Winter Racing Carnival kicks into gear including one of the country’s biggest race days – the Ipswich Cup.
This year’s Carnival includes the much anticipate return of the TAB Ipswich Cup, the Channel Seven Family Race Day and the Festival of Horsepower soiree.
Joining the Carnival stable this year is Seven presenter Liz Cantor who is the official ambassador.
Liz has a strong affinity with horses and is looking forward to playing an important role in Ipswich’s principal race day.
“I am thrilled to be teaming up with Ipswich this year after last year’s event was cancelled due to Covid-19,” Liz said.
“Racing is such a colourful and engaging sport that brings an entire community together and to be part of that experience is really special.”
“I’m a part-owner in two race horse including Dusty Tycoon with trainer Rob Heathcote and Lyrical Girl with Tony Gollan and just love the excitement racing brings on and off the track,” said Liz who is also on the board of the Transitioning Thoroughbreds Foundation for re-homing retired race horses.
With 2020 event being cancelled due to Covid-19 the excitement within the community is at an all time high.
“To have so many guests returning to Ipswich for this one event is a testament to the Cup. Some patrons have been coming back to meet up with friends and family for the past 25, 30 and 40 years.
“It is a privilege to be part of the festivities and I’m honoured to be part of the 2021 event that has such a significant role in the region.”
