Why not stay for the weekend at The Club's accommodation
On Saturday 26th November 2016 the Tattersall's Club comes alive once again for the annual Tattersall's Celebration Season Race Day at Eagle Farm. Patrons will enjoy a day full of fun, great horse racing, fashion and live entertainment.
Founded in 1865 by a group of distinguished business gents, who were well-known in the thoroughbred horseracing industry in Queensland, The Tattersall's Club has become not only a racing location but a venue that offers a range of hospitality options for everyone. Re-development of The Club in 1997 now allows patrons to take advantage of a large function centre catering for 300 people, the Healy Room fine dining restaurant, eighteen accommodation suits, a fully equipped gymnasium and a twenty-five metre indoor heated swimming pool.
The name "Tattersall's" was derived from the London horse auction mart and subscription rooms.
General admission tickets can be purchased online for $10.00 or at the gate for $15.00 per person. Children and pensioners are free. Tickets can also be purchased online for the Members' Stand at $20.00 per person or at the gate at a cost of $30.00 per person.
You may like to make application to become a member of The Club, which will give you several benefits such as use of the Club's facilities and services, invitations to Member-only events, discount car parking and the opportunity to participate in their loyalty points system and partner cards, which provides Member benefits to them as well. An application form can be located on their website.
The Doomben Racecourse is situated at 75 Hampden Street, Ascot and parking is available inside the grounds. Gates open at 10.30am. Put this day into your calendar as an event not to miss as the excitement mounts not only on the racecourse but hopefully through the winnings in your pocket. If you require more information on the day's event, you can contact The Club here. Relaxed open terraces and air-conditioned sit down lunch venues are available on site.
