The Coast-to-Coast race day is an annual event traditionally held at Aquis Park, but was staged at the Sunshine Coast Turb Club due to a $63 million redevelopment underway at the Gold Coast Turf Club. The Coast-to-Coast race day is comprised of multiple races of varying distances and prizes, all including a quality line-up of horses.
We were contacted to create a refreshed, luxurious trophy suite for the 2023 event, to coincide with the renaming of the event. We created a trophy for the winning owner, trainer and jockey of each race. For the top tier race, the $500,000 Group 2 TAB A.D Hollindale Stakes, we created a more opulent version of the trophy to emulate the prestigious nature of the race.
As this event was to be held on the Sunshine Coast as opposed to the usual Gold Coast grounds, We selected a whitewashed natural Australian timber for the main body of the awards instead of the usual natural timber finish. We adorned the awards with an intricate floral detail that was laser cut to reveal gold detailing underneath. The top of the trophy included a laser cut timber horse motif and the text and logo were laser etched onto the body of the trophy.
To add a layer of luxury to the prestigious TAB A.D Hollindale Stakes race, we elected a different laser cut floral pattern to differentiate between the awards.
We loved creating this custom trophy! Contact us today to get started on your next project.
