THE collective fingers of Stanthorpe are crossed that, weather wise, this year will be the third time lucky for the annual Central Motors Holden Stanthorpe Cup Day.

Stanthorpe Jockey Club president Neil Brunckhorst said everything was looking good.

"We are expecting a very big crowd and I think numbers will be larger than previous years," he said.

"The track and all the surrounds (at ArmstrongPark) are in perfect condition so if the weather stays this way we will be in for a great day.

"If it does rain the party will go on like it has in previous years and we will only cancel the races if conditions become unsafe."

Mr Brunckhorst said those at the races would be rubbing shoulders with big racing industry names.

"Queensland Racing chairman Kevin Dixon will be coming as well as The Courier-Mail turf editor Bart Sinclair and sports writer Bernie Pramberg," he said.

Full bar and canteen facilities will be running and free buses will leave for the track at 11am from Rogers St behind the Country Club and will return from 5pm.

Gates open at 10.30am and admission is $20 a person and children under 14 are free.
