ST PATS RACE CLUB – MEDIA RELEASE

Thursday 13 December 2018.

The 2019 St Pat’s posters have arrived and are ready for distribution.
Since the inception of the race meeting in 1966 the poster has become a
major marketing tool and a much sought – after collector’s item.
“ We missed out on having the poster ready before Christmas last year but
this year it is all systems go, ” said the clubs secretary manager Kimberley
Fell.
“ The main reason we are well advanced this year is that all of our race
sponsors are committed for 2019 so we were in a position to hit the print
button nice and early. “
The much- anticipated cover for 2019 is not the traditional piece of artwork but
a stunning photo taken by BDT photographer Gavin Schmidt on the 24 th
March 2009.
The photo taken at dawn at the race course shows Boy Lucas ridden by Spog
Harvey silhouetted against the finishing post with the rising sun in the
background.
“ The committee decided on something different for next year and we looked
at a great number of photos from many talented local photographers but we
picked Gavin’s as it showcases the amazing light at the racecourse early in
the morning, “ Ms Fell said.
The poster is available for people to collect from the Visitors Information
Centre and Ms Fell is encouraging locals to assist in spreading the word.
“ We like anyone who is travelling over the holiday period to grab some
posters and put them up on their travels to help promote our meeting. “
