Gourmet food and wine, glamorous fashion and racing action come together next month, at one of South Australia's most picturesque racing destinations, for the ever-popular Port Lincoln Cup.
With a special visit from fashion blogger Jessie Wright, the MGA Insurance Brokers Port Lincoln Cup, to be held on March 2, is set to be a highlight on the 2018 racing calendar.
The Cup will also play host to former Adelaide Crows star, Tony Modra, who will be signing autographs and mingling with the crowd throughout the day.
Club President Greg Fitzgerald said they were hoping to see more people than ever at the track this year.
“We are extremely proud of our Cup day and all the support it receives from locals and visitors from across South Australia,” Mr Fitzgerald said.
“The club has worked extremely hard in the lead up to the Cup to make the day an enjoyable and exciting day out for all. We hope that all of that hard work pays off and we have another successful event.”
The Port Lincoln Cup Fashion on the Field is a qualifying heat in the 2017/2018 Fashion at The Races competition and Thoroughbred Racing SA is calling on style savvy racegoers to bring their fashion A-game to the event.
The winner on Cup day will take home $1000 cash, a $200 The Daily Edited voucher, local prizes from both F45 Port Lincoln and Leading Edge Jewellers Port Lincoln and will also qualify for the Fashion at The Races 2017/18 State Final to be held in September 2018.
The overall winner of the competition at the end of the season will be awarded with an incredible $5000 shopping spree at BNKR and a VIP Events Experience from the South Australian Tourism Commission.
There will also be plenty of food and beverage options and packages to purchase on the day, including an abundance of the region’s famed seafood and wine.
The EP Bus Charters Courtesy Bus will be leaving from the Makybe Diva Statue (Foreshore) to the racecourse from 10.30am until 12.30pm and returning again after the last race.
The event will see a Pimms Bar on site, as well as The Bock Shepherd Experience performing in the general admission area on race day.
