Racing Luncheon at The National Press Club of Australia

The National Press Club of Australia in conjunction with The Carbine Club of the ACT invite members and guests to a racing luncheon with special guest speaker, a true legend of the racing world ……. Jim Cassidy.

Friday 9 March 2018
12 noon for 12.30pm start
Cost: $130 per person

From the moment Jim Cassidy piloted strapping chestnut Kiwi for a last to first victory in the 1983 Melbourne Cup, racing folk knew a star had been born.  In a career spanning five decades “Pumper”, as he is affectionately known, proved that he was one of a kind.  A sublime talent in the saddle, a larger than life character out of it, and a champion bloke to boot – a rare combination that catapulted Jim Cassidy to become not only one of the greatest jockeys of all time, but one of the most popular sportsmen of his era.

Jim’s career highlights include winning:

2 x Melbourne Cups
2 x Caulfield Cups
1 x Cox Plate
1 x Golden Slipper
6 x Derbies
6 x Oaks

This lunch is not to be missed and at $130 is great value.
Bookings are essential.
