Punters line up for last minute tickets

IPSWICH Cup fans were still flocking to the track yesterday to buy tickets for tomorrow's big day.

Ipswich Turf Club staff were kept busy selling Ipswich Cup Day tickets to people getting in at almost the last minute.

General manager Brett Kitching said tickets were still available through Ticketek or at Ipswich Turf Club until 4pm today.

General admission tickets are $20 pre-purchased or $25 at the gate tomorrow.

Corona Marquee tickets are $150 each.

Kitching said rain overnight on Wednesday soaked the track but there was plenty of time and sunshine to dry it.

"We had 24mm in the 24 hours to midnight and that made the track a heavy 10," Kitching said yesterday.

"But we expect it to be in the range of dead five to slow seven by Saturday."
