Dressed in their finest, ladies and gents will flock to the Sunshine Coast Turf Club on Friday 27 May for the legendary HOT 91 Ladies Oaks Day Twilight Races & Afterparty on the Front Lawn.

One of the Sunshine Coast Turf Club’s most iconic racedays returns trackside for it’s 17th year – expect race day extravagance, with stylish fashion & international-standard entertainment. Paying homage to its origins, we uphold the glamour of racing, paired with the traditional frivolity of Ladies Day.

The Sunshine Coast Turf Club’s CEO, John Miller, notes the significance of HOT 91 Ladies Oaks Day for the club.

“First launched in 2005, it has some great racing action during the afternoon combined with a variety of live entertainment performances popular with the younger demographic,” Mr Miller said.

Each year a charity is nominated as the beneficiary of the HOT 91 Ladies Oaks Day, this year the Sunshine Coast Turf Club and HOT 91 are proud to be donating proceeds and a percentage of takings to SunnyKids Sunshine Coast.  

The Twilight Racing action kicks off from 1pm as Gates open & celebrations begin! Held on Caloundra Show Day Holiday, there’s no better excuse to welcome in the long weekend. Coinciding with the public holiday, “it provides an exciting entertainment option for the local community to celebrate on the day.  As we move towards the winter months the Club offers some Friday twilight meetings that commence mid afternoon and finish with the last couple of races held under lights,” details Mr Miller.

Throughout the afternoon, the 7 race program & Billy J ‘Fashions On The Field’ will take centre stage. 

Following the Last Race, the Front Lawn will come alive after dark courtesy of International Headlining DJ YO! MAFIA for her first ever show on the Sunshine Coast.

A rare talent with a gift for blending Hip Hop with a variety of RNB, electro & everything in between – YO! MAFIA is guaranteed to get the Afterparty started. Her acute party-savvy ears have earnt her the title of “The International Party DJ”, selling out shows worldwide. Her signature genre-smashing sets have supported a wide range of A-List artists by the likes of Tinnie Tempah, Missy Elliott & A$AP Ferg, just to name a few.

Racegoers will revel in premium hospitality packages, show-stopping fashions & thrilling thoroughbred racing; an appealing agenda for social enthusiasts and racing purists alike. From tasty treats & eats in the Society Precinct to a 5 Course Degustation in the panoramic heights of Atrium Dining, a variety of options grants HOT 91 Ladies Oaks Day as a great day out to celebrate with family & friends. 

We’ve curated a spectacular lineup throughout our Members Enclosure and VIP general admission – the perfect packages for corporate entertainment, and for enjoying a day out with family and friends after a turbulent start to the year. It’s something to look forward to and to start planning now. 

In light of International Women’s Day and a growing strength of women in sport, we hope to see the current leading female premiership jockeys race on the day; Tiffani Brooker, Samantha Collet and Leah Kilner have been standout contenders at SCTC throughout the season.

Mr Miller commented on the “very strong contingent of female riders competing regularly on the Sunshine Coast at the moment and it would be fantastic to see them riding winners on the Ladies Oaks Day program in front of a big crowd in attendance.”

Tickets & packages are available now for pre-purchase, plus discounted General Admission when you buy before the raceday. This is strictly an 18+ event.

Gates open at 1pm. Race times to be confirmed by Sky Racing.
