This Saturday, December 11, Sydney’s iconic Rosehill Gardens Racecourse is getting into the seasonal festivities as they host the $100,000 Listed Christmas Cup (2400m).
The feature event on an exciting eight-race programme that gives punters lots of chances to win some extra cash before the holidays, the 2010 Christmas Cup is one of the final black-type races in Sydney for the year.
To be part of the action you can jump on the complimentary bus for Breakfast Point and surrounding suburbs, departing from The Palace Hotel to and from the Races. Pick up at the Palace Hotel is 10.45am returning at approx 6pm.
The 2010 Matrium Financial Services Christmas Cup is scheduled to run as Race 5 at Rosehill on Saturday, jumping at 3:45pm (local NSW time).
Final fields have been released for Saturday’s Christmas Cup meeting at Rosehill with nine runners to contest the feature event on the card.
Of the nine runners to contest Saturday’s Listed Christmas Cup (2400m), Chris Waller-trained gallopers make up a third of the field.
While last start winner Beijing Boy will likely be saved for the Group 3 Summer Cup (2400m) on Boxing Day, stablemate and runner up Strike One is expected to be the Christmas Cup favourite after he hit the line strong for second.
