THE glitz and glamour of the Lockyer Valley's biggest racing event on the 2014 calendar hit Burgess Park on Monday.
Lockyer Race Club vice-president Steve Brennan said about 700 people attended the Gatton Cup.
"The weather was good, the racing was good and it looked like everyone enjoyed the day," he said.
"We are really happy with the day - it was successful for us and had a good family atmosphere."
The Royal Hotel Gatton sponsored the 2000m Gatton Cup for the first time, with Dodging Eddie taking out the coveted feature.
The horse is trained by Toowoomba's Michael Nolan, ridden by Skye Bogenhuber and owned by Ipswich friends Trent Quinn, Craig Gillam, Michael Grieve, Nathan Lee, David Richardson, Michael Wiseman and Ross and Tim Sauer. It was ridden by Skye Bogenhuber.
Mr Brennan said next year's Gatton Cup was set to be held on the same weekend, this time on the Sunday before the Queen's Birthday holiday.
The next Lockyer Race Club TAB meeting is on Thursday, July 10.
