Coopers Celebration Ale To celebrate its 150th anniversary, Coopers has released a special anniversary beer, aptly named ‘Celebration Ale’. Coopers Celebration Ale is unique in that the water used in the brewing process comes from the brewery’s own deep aquifers, with the mineral composition modified specifically for ale brewing. The barley is sourced from the maritime regions of South Australia and the pale malt from this barley is complemented by the use of crystal malt, giving the beer an appealing red hue and a nutty, slightly sweet aftertaste. Get your hands on a Coopers Celebration Ale at the Gawler Cup on Sunday, September 23 where the special brew will be served in the comforts of the Coopers Long Lunch. Tickets available for $135, phone 8522 1801 or for more information turn to page 18.

Who will survive?

Quorn locals were in for the shock of their lives when their quiet little country race day (Saturday 16 June) was taken over by the glitz and glamour of new reality TV show I Will Survive. Stars from the series dressed to impress to compete in Fashion on the Field and a foot race down the home straight. Celebrating the best of Australian flora and fauna, contestants came dressed as bottlebrush, koalas and even the Sydney Harbour Bridge – not the usual ensemble for a Fashion at The Races hopeful! Ex-Neighbours and current Broadway star Jason Donovan is one of the judges for the TV series and was on hand at Quorn to help welcome the colourful contestants. For more information, visit the I Will Survive website Spring 2012



Black Caviar in Ascot Two sold out crowds of 30,000 people were lucky enough to see Black Caviar in the flesh when she graced us with her beauty on Oaks Day and Goodwood Day at Morphettville Racecourse back in Autumn. So imagine the thrill of seeing her representing our country with pride at the iconic Royal Ascot Carnival in England! Melissa Ware, editor of The Races magazine, made the pilgrimage to London with hundreds of other Aussies in June to see history in the making and Black Caviar race to her 22nd win. There’s nothing like an Ashes win . . . of sorts!

The October long weekend gives out-of-towners a chance to head to the Mid-North for country racing at its best.

HENRY BUCKS Once upon a time Spring racing fashion was all for the ladies – but not anymore. Men’s racing fashion has been taken to new heights in recent years, with hats, caps and other trends reinventing male race day attire. Henry Bucks is supporting the men’s Fashion on the Field category at the Gawler Cup this year with suave suits, shirts and ties that are sure to get any man on the best dressed list. When dressing for the races, go for a grey or light coloured suit rather than your typical 9-to-5 business suit. And, if you’re not inclined to wear the flower of the Race Day, definitely pull out a pocket square and match your shirt or shoes. Why not bring out a statement hat and show your personality? Don’t be too concerned with colour matching the hat to your overall look, but if possible do opt for subtle matching with other parts of your outfit – such as your belt or shoes. It’s not just the ladies that dress up in the hottest fashion trends for a day at The Races! Henry Bucks is offering a $500 voucher for the best dressed male at Gawler Cup.

famous races Royal Ascot – United Kingdom The famous English racecourse, located in the small town of Ascot, Berkshire, shot to the attention of Australians recently when our very own Black Caviar took home her 22nd win in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes. There are few sporting venues that can match the rich heritage and history of Ascot Racecourse. The course is well-known for its close association with the British Royal Family – it was founded in1711 by Queen Anne and is just under 10kms from Windsor Castle. The racecourse hosts nine of the UK’s 32 annual Group 1 Races – with the centrepiece being the five day Royal Ascot Carnival. Every year Royal Ascot is attended by members of the British Royal Family who arrive each day in a horse-drawn carriage. The event is also a major occasion in the British social calendar.

Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe – France

Kentucky Derby – United States of America Across the United States it’s known as “the most exciting two minutes in sports” – named so for its approximate duration. The Kentucky Derby is held annually in Louisville, Kentucky on the first Saturday in May. The 2,000 metre race caps off the two-week-long Kentucky Derby Festival and is America’s extravagant springtime sports party. Held at Churchill Downs, the Derby is also known as “the run for the roses” – due to the blanket of roses which is draped over the winner. The Derby has been run every consecutive year since 1875.

Popularly referred to as the ‘Arc’, the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is one of Europe’s most prestigious horse races. A slogan of the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, first used on a promotional poster in 2003, describes the event as “Ce n’est pas une course, c’est un monument” – “Not so much a race as a monument”. It’s currently one of the world’s richest turf races, along with the Melbourne Cup and the Japan Cup.

QE2 Cup – Hong Kong

Dubai World Cup – United Arab Emirates Held annually since 1996, the Dubai World Cup has had a purse of US $10million – making it the world’s richest horse race. The race was created by the Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum who owns Darley Stud and Godolphin Racing, one of the world’s leading thoroughbred breeding and racing operations. The Group 1 flat race is run on Tapeta Footings synthetic surface over 2,000 metres in late March.

The Queen Elizabeth II Cup was first run back in 1975 to commemorate a visit to Hong Kong by Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip. It evolved to an international event in 1995 and is now run annually in April over a distance of 2,000 metres.

Japan Cup – Japan The Japan Cup is the world’s second richest horse race and is the premier horse race held in Japan. It is an invitational event held at the esteemed Tokyo Racecourse and run over 2,400 metres. During a relatively short history, the race has established itself as an international contest with winners from Japan, North America, Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, France, Germany and Italy.

Melbourne Cup Day in Adelaide If you can’t make it to Flemington for 2012 Melbourne Cup Day – or to any of these famous races around the world – the next best place to be is Morphettville Racecourse in Adelaide. Adelaide’s premier racing destination will be holding the city’s biggest Melbourne Cup party on Tuesday, November 6, with a broad range of syndicated and private hospitality options on offer. It’s also an automatic qualifying event for Fashion at The Races so dress to impress for a place in the State Final! Gates open at 10am and General Admission prices for adults are just $15. Children under 18 get in free. Click here for bookings and more information or contact the South Australian Jockey Club on 8295 0199.

Melbourne Cup – Australia As Australia’s major thoroughbred horse race and the richest turf horse race in the world, the Melbourne Cup is known as ‘the race that stops a nation’. The 3,200 metre race is conducted by the Victoria Racing Club at Flemington Racecourse on the first Tuesday of November. The event has been held since 1861 and has cemented its position as a valued sporting, social and cultural event in Australia.

the other side of roo

the other side of Roo “I’ve been a brand ambassador for Carlton Draught for more than 10 years now and it means I get to go to the races regularly, what more could a bloke ask for in a job.”

In his days as captain of the Adelaide Football Club, the Riverland was always the place where Mark “Roo” Ricciuto would go to escape the demands of AFL football. In retirement, nothing has changed for Waikerie-born Roo – the Murray is still the first place he turns when he’s looking to relax. Now, Ricciuto is combining his passion for the Riverland with business in a new venture which also incorporates one of his favourite past-times – horse racing. We recently caught up with Roo fresh off the plane from a weekend in the Northern Territory for the Darwin Cup. TRQ: So you’ve just come back from the Darwin Cup – tell us a bit about that.

TRQ: Apart from fishing, how do you like to spend your time when you’re not working?

Roo: I’ve been a brand ambassador for Carlton Draught for more than 10 years now and it means I get to go to the races regularly, what more could a bloke ask for in a job? I go to a lot of the country meets across South Australia and I also try to get up to the Darwin Cup each year. It’s always a great event and a weekend in the NT allows me to indulge in some of my other favourite past-times – such as fishing.

Roo: I try to spend as much time as I can with my four kids (Sophie, 5, Nick, 4, Joe, 2, and Rosie, 7 months). I also get over to Port Lincoln or back home to Waikerie whenever I can. I love the river – there’s nothing better than going on houseboats, yabbying, fishing and just relaxing by the water. TRQ: Now that you’ve hung up your footy boots, what does a typical work day look like for you?

The Races Quarterly South Australia

Roo: I’m involved in three pubs – the Alma in Norwood, which we’ve had for 12 years now, the Port Lincoln Hotel and I’ve just recently purchased the Hackney Hotel with Bernie Vince, Nathan Van Berlo and the Hurleys. I generally look after the hotels in the mornings and then in the afternoons I’m on Triple M’s sport show from 3-6pm. On the weekends I often do footy radio on Triple M – so it’s fairly hectic during the winter months. TRQ: We hear you’ve now combined business and pleasure in a new venture at Murray Bridge – can you tell us about that?

murray bridge Gold CUP| 17

Roo: I’m involved in the Murray Bridge Equine and Village Development – which is a multi-million dollar urban growth project and racecourse development in Murray Bridge. As well as incorporating a housing development, the precinct is going to include state-of-the-art equine facilities, race and training tracks, and function amenities. It will certainly be great for racing in this state and it will be a boon to the Murray Bridge region. I’m passionate about the Riverland and I love racing so I’m pretty excited to be involved in the project. TRQ: You’re a racing fan – do you have a share in a horse yourself? Roo: I drew a horse called Hastein at the Calcutta auction in Port Lincoln this year, I went on to buy it with six other shareholders from Adelaide and Port Lincoln and then it won the Cup. It’s the first horse I have been involved in and I think people thought the

whole thing was rigged! Hastein has won a couple of races in Adelaide since then and I’m hoping it can go back to back in the Port Lincoln Cup next year. TRQ: So what’s the next race meet we’ll see you at? Roo: I’ll be at the Carlton Draught Murray Bridge Gold Cup on Wednesday, 17 October. It’s a great event and I’d really like to see it become as popular as some of SA’s other racing events such as the Balaklava Cup. There are some great hospitality options on offer as part of the day so it’s a great chance to grab some mates or colleagues and make the most of the atmosphere.

Amber-hued history


he year was 1862. Across the Pacific the U.S. Civil War raged into its second year. In England, Alice in Wonderland was first given voice, and France saw the birth of legendary stallion and English Triple Crown winner Gladiateur. In South Australia, something of much longer lasting importance was taking place – Thomas Cooper, a former stonemason and shoemaker, produced his first beer to launch the Coopers brewing empire.

Amberhued history

That was 150 years ago, meaning South Australians have been enjoying Coopers for almost as long as they’ve been enjoying organised horse racing which started in 1839. When that first drop of amber fluid was poured, Coopers was one of 10 breweries in Adelaide and one of 34 across South Australia. But quality survives and by 1954 only Coopers and the South Australian Brewing Company remained. That quality was evident from the start, with Thomas Cooper using only the best ingredients available and infusing pride and passion into his brews. To this day the tradition continues, as Coopers sources the highest quality barley from South Australia and hops from interstate and overseas. Thomas’ great-great-grandchildren – Managing Director Dr Tim Cooper and Chairman Mr Glenn Cooper – are now in charge of day-to-day operations, overseeing a company which has become the largest Australian-owned brewery. Coopers currently produces about 63 million litres of beer a year. Its most popular products? Its traditional top-fermented ales such as Pale Ale, which most breweries in Australia

The Races Quarterly South Australia

GAWLER CUP| 19 have long abandoned in favour of lagers. Throughout its history Coopers has been about more than just beer. The company has been a strong supporter of many sports, the arts, and community events across the country. For many years, Coopers has been an advocate for a number of South Australia’s regional racing clubs including Oakbank Racing Club, Naracoorte Racing Club, Balaklava Racing Club, Gawler & Barossa Jockey Club, Penola Racing Club, Kangaroo Island Racing Club and Millicent Racing Club. Coopers Marketing Manager, Mr Cam Pearce, said Coopers was a keen supporter of regional South Australia. “Country race meetings are strongly supported by their communities and sponsoring the meetings gives us a chance to give something back to the communities that support us,” he said. To celebrate its 150th anniversary, Coopers has undertaken a series of events across the nation including the release of a special anniversary beer, aptly named ‘Celebration Ale’. The ale is the culmination of careful planning and research by the Coopers Brewing team, resulting in a distinctive beer presented in kegs or 355ml bottles. Coopers beer – including the Celebration Ale – will be served as part of the hospitality packages at this year’s PD Excavations Gawler Cup on Sunday, September 23. This year there are plenty of great hospitality packages on offer for those who are keen to get involved in the festivities – racegoers will be able to relax at The Coopers Long Lunch, in The Coopers Cave or in the privacy of their own tent. “The Gawler Cup is favoured as a great day of quality racing, fashion

and entertainment. Guests can anticipate some serious action on the track, some serious outfits trackside and lots of great food, beer and wine,” said Dominic Shepley, Chief Executive of the Gawler Barossa Jockey Club. SAFM presenter and Fashion at The Races Ambassador, Hayley Pearson will be part of the final judging panel on Oaks Day and is making appearances throughout the year at various country race meetings. The Gawler Cup will be her first official appearance. event details PD Excavations Gawler Cup Sunday 23 September 2012 Click here for hospitality packages. • Coopers Long Lunch $135 • General admission $12 • Concession $8 • Fashion at The Races qualifying heat • South Aussie with Cosi filming live!

there’s a real buzz on

King William Road Hyde PARK lately August saw around 40 of the fabulous shops, restaurants and cafes on the popular destination strip host artists for the South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival, culminating in a large crowd enjoying SALA on Sale on King William event on August 26. Hot on the heels of SALA on King William, came the second year of the Road’s sponsorship of Fashions on the Field at Balaklava Cup. Thanks to the Balaklava Racing Club, the Road gave away a package for six lucky race lovers to attend the Cup, with Maz Compton the Face of the Cup for 2012 fronting the campaign on NOVA 91.9. City of Unley has once again secured a Race start for the Tour Down Under, so the Unley Gourmet Gala on King William will once again turn the Road into a big party venue on

January 23, the night before the start of Stage 3 of the event on King William Road. But the event that’s really got the Road buzzing is Variety on King William which will kick off the 2012 Adelaide Fashion Festival on October 19. This will see nearly 600 patrons enjoying a seated lunch on the Road, with a European style fashion parade featuring the latest fashion trends on King William. Liza Emanuele brought the inspiration for this event to the Road. “I saw a video of a Chanel Parade, and just knew it was right for King William Road,” said Liza.

Some of the Road’s key names will provide the lunch – Parisi’s, The Pot, Jones the Grocer, Mulot’s Patisserie and By Blackbird, with net proceeds going to Variety. “We’re delighted to team up with Variety for this event,” said Trader’s Association Chairman John Karran from Karrans of Hyde Park. “It’s a wonderful organisation that does great work for children and families in this state.” Tickets for Variety on King William are available via Venue Tix or at selected venues on the Road. For more information visit

“We’ve got so many wonderful fashion and accessory retailers on the Road, not to mention great restaurants – this lunch is a marriage made in heaven.”
