2019 Carbine Club Luncheon
Start: 8 January @ 11:45 am
End: 3:00 pm
The Carbine Club of Queensland will again host Queensland’s biggest Racing Lunch with the celebration of the 2019 The Star Gold Coast Magic Millions Carnival on Tuesday 8 January at The Star-Gold Coast.
Our very special guest is the history making 2015 Melbourne Cup winning jockey Michelle Payne. Payne will reflect on her brilliant ride to fame on Prince of Penzance and how her life changed forever through Australian and International praise and coverage.
In 2016 Michelle was awarded the ‘Don Award’ by the Sport Australia Hall of Fame – a National award to a sportsperson, who through their achievements and example over the previous 12 months, is considered to have most inspired the nation.
Then in 2017 Michelle received International recognition with the ‘Longines Ladies Award’ in Washington USA – awarded to distinguished women whose careers have shown a positive influence and exceptional commitment to the equine cause.
Her inspiring book titled ‘Michelle Payne- Life As I Know It’ was released in April 2017 and the long awaited movie of her 2015 Melbourne Cup win on Prince of Penzance named ‘Ride Like A Girl’ is set for release late in 2019.
Special guests James McDonald and his partner Katelyn Mallyon will provide a real insight in to their racing lives over the past few years.
James at the age of 27, already has a very impressive record of over 1300 winners with 35 Group 1 Wins, 47 Group 2 Wins, 63 Group 3 Wins and 50 Listed Race Wins to his name. He is in keen demand from the leading stables all over Australia, NZ and the UK and appears to have the best years ahead of him.
Katelyn was a former, very talented jockey and only recently retired from race riding in June 2018 with 269 winners – including a Group 1 win on ‘Silent Sedition’ in the 2017 William Reid Stakes and 4 wins in Group 2 Races – including back to back Rubiton Stakes wins on ‘Heatherley’ in 2016 and ‘Super Cash’ in 2017. Katelyn is now an integral part of the Channel 7 Racing Broadcast.
The Carbine Club Luncheon includes a two-course meal, afternoon cheese platters and a beverage package of beer, wine and soft drinks.
