Ipswich Show Holiday Race Day Event Friday 18th May
Join us for a great day at the track where race goers are invited to:
The Official Opening of the Ipswich Racing Museum
Following the recent announcement of the Ipswich Infrastructure Project to be implemented over the next couple of years involving modernisation of the site, the Ipswich Turf Club wished to preserve the 170 years of history of Ipswich Racing and decided to develop the disused 60 year old Tote building used for storage into the Ipswich Racing Museum which will incorporate the Museum Bar.
Business Luncheon with Racing Identity Anthony Cummings - Anthony belongs to an Australian racing dynasty started by his grandfather, James Martin, and made famous by his father James Bartholomew (Bart Cummings) – the cups king. As a third generation Group One trainer, Anthony is following in footsteps that have re-written Australian racing history.
The Cummings Dynasty – Four generations of the family have won the VRC Derby – Jim Cummings won in 1948 with Comic Court who also won the Melbourne Cup in 1950, Bart Cummings won five VRC Derbies as well as 12 Melbourne Cups from 1965 to 2008, his son Anthony won the VRC Derby in 2012 with Fiveandahalfstar, and his son James won the VRC Derby in 2016 with Prized Icon. The family has been successful at Ipswich as Bart Cummings won the big double in 1978 with Lloyd Boy in the Ipswich Cup and Better Beyond in the Eye Liner Stakes.
