The race that stops a nation has quickly come around again! In its 157th year, one of the richest turf races in the world is set to kick off next Tuesday. Whether you’re at Flemington or Randwick or watching from a pub or restaurant from any of our four locations, there’s guaranteed to be plenty of action. Restaurants all over Sydney and Melbourne are putting on their best lunches, everyone will don their spring florals and you can be sure there will be plenty of revelry on the day.
Superstar mare Winx won’t be racing but there are plenty of other names on the field to keep an eye on. Yucatan Ire is the horse to nab in the office sweeps – he’s the favourite of punters. Magic Circle and Cross Counter aren’t far behind so you have plenty of options if you are chasing a trifecta. Sam Smith will be performing at Flemington before the start of the race and plenty of other venues will have DJs and live music for the day. Fashion stakes are high both in the office and at the races, so get your fascinators out for what is sure to be another year of fun!
