TAB meet for Father's Day

THE Warwick Turf Club is hosting its first TAB race in well over a decade this Father's Day.

Turf Club president Jim Costello said it would be great to see a big turnout at the meeting.

"It will be a nice way to spend the day in the sun and celebrate Father's Day," he said.

Mr Costello said the Turf Club would be doing its bit to help celebrate the family tradition by treating fathers to a free "refreshment".

Gates open at 11am with the first of six races starting at 1.35pm.

Mr Costello said there would be bookmakers on site as well as a pizza and pie cart and plenty of burgers straight off the barbecue.

"Families are welcome to bring their own picnic basket and mat and find a spot in the sun," he said.

While the ladies and gentlemen are welcome to frock up for the occasion, Mr Costello said, it would just be a laid-back, easy Sunday event.

Look for the photos and coverage of the meeting in Monday's edition of the Daily News.
