The South Lounge looked like Flemington on race day we had so many beautiful roses decorating the room.
Punters kept Bookie, Julie, active before each race with high demand for on course betting and the hardworking Steward, Bernice, was also occupied for much of the afternoon.
Race 1 on the card; Warrion Stakes won buy Rhiannon
Race 2; Nalangil Handicap won by Kim
Race 3; Colac Derby won by Dan; and
Race 4; Otway Plate won by Maddy.
These jockeys earnt their place in Race 5 the Corangamarah Cup.
Defending jockey, Dan, was an early tip but he ran on a full stomach and the race was eventually won by the young favourtie, Maddy who was heavily backed.
A mystery judge was on course and prizes were awarded to:
Lady of the Day: Betty Berry
Gent of the Day: John Mitchell
Best Hat: Kerry Daffy
Honourable Mention: Merle King
Residents enjoyed the entertainment, dressing up, the antics of the Chief Steward and the wonderful afternoon tea.
Thank you to all the staff who joined in to make the day a resounding success and a bit of fun.
