Over the last 49 years the Wellington Cup has personally given me some wonderful moments at Trentham and I’m looking forward to my 50th consecutive Wellington Cup on the champagne turf on January 30.
From my first Cup in 1972 when Simon de Montfort paid huge odds when winning, to one of NZ’s favourite thoroughbreds, Kiwi in 1983 before he gained even greater glory at Flemington in the same year, to the triple Wellington Cup hero, Castletown in the 90’s.
I’ve often said that our Melbourne Cup trips are not always about the event or the horses but rather the great number of people we have attracted on our tours and the camaraderie.
Unfortunately due to the COVID issue in Melbourne, we have to cancel this years tour so we thought wouldn’t it be great to get as many people who have been on our many Melbourne Cup tours (and some of your dear friends and family if you wish) to enjoy the 2021 Wellington Cup instead.
Let’s rekindle some special friendships and do what we are all good at. That’s having a great time with like-minded people on one of the great race days on the NZ calendar.
I hope you can join us. Des Coppins
