Former Pasminco Country Cup winner Shayne Olsen has a big tip for this year’s races ... buy your tickets before you head out to the racecourse on Saturday.

Shayne lives in Maroochydore, Queensland, and has been coming to the Silver City for the past 23 years to volunteer at the St Pat’s office in Crystal Street.

Shayne owned Eudlo Mill, a fine stallion that won the cup by a length in 1998.

This year, all patrons over 18 who want a drop of alcohol with their races will be required to obtain a wristband at the entry gate to the racecourse.

Punters are urged to pre-purchase entry tickets to avoid delays getting on to the course.
