THE Ballarat Cup is one of the biggest events on the punters’ calendar, and another massive crowd is anticipated at Dowling Forest Racecourse tomorrow.
Up to 10,000 accomplished betting regulars, once-a-year wonders and frocked-up fashionistas are expected to flood through the gates to enjoy a day at the track and maybe even to pick up a few easy dollars.
The Cup is easily the busiest day of the year at Dowling Forest and, like elsewhere, it’s also one of the most colourful – an annual excuse for many to dress up and turn heads in elegant or eye-popping ensembles.
To capture what the Ballarat Cup is all about, The Courier is asking racegoers to show how they enjoy the Cup by snapping photos of you and your friends on the day and then submitting them via The Courier’s latest iPhone and Android apps.
By sending in your photo, you could win a double pass to Red Hot Summer Tour 2013: Aussie Rock Extravaganza which will feature Jimmy Barnes, Ian Moss and the Baby Animals.
Photos will be uploaded to The Courier website as the day unfolds.
You can log on to Fun At The Cup photo gallery later via the app and see your photos.
WHAT TO DO: Take your Ballarat Cup photos and submit via the report button on The Courier’s iPhone and Android apps under the assignment Fun At The Cup.
