Melbourne Cup Carnival

AAMI VICTORIA DERBY DAY – SAT 02 Nov 19

Regarded as one of the most prestigious days of racing in Australasia, featuring a card of nine Group races, four at the elite Group 1 level. The feature Group 1 AAMI Victoria Derby Day – worth over AUD $1.5 million – is Australia’s premier staying classic for three-year-olds. Off the track, the fashion stakes are equally as high with the commencement of the Myer Fashions on the Field competition. The striking elegance of AAMI Victoria Derby Day sets the benchmark for the entire racing week. Traditionally, black and white has been the prominent colour scheme for ladies, while gentlemen often choose to wear a grey morning suit, top hat, peacock vest and pin-stripe pants.


LEXUS MELBOURNE CUP DAY – TUE 05 Nov 19

The Lexus Melbourne Cup is the crowning glory and focal point for the Melbourne Cup Carnival. While most of Australia stops to watch or listen to the race, there’s nothing like being there amongst the 100,000 plus crowd to truly experience this spectacular event. The excitement slowly builds to its 3pm fever pitch when the nation draws to a halt for 200 heart-pounding seconds. Each year a new chapter is written, a new legend is born and a new dream comes true as the winning connections are bestowed Australia's most famous sporting trophy.


KENNEDY OAKS DAY – THU 07 Nov 19

Known for being the pinnacle of style during the Melbourne Cup Carnival and commonly referred to as “ladies day”, women of all ages come together dressed in their most majestic and resplendent ensembles. Kennedy Oaks Day’s significance on the fashion calendar is further reinforced with the announcement of the Myer Fashions on the Field national winner. The racing highlight is the $1 million Group 1 Kennedy Oaks, which will see the best three-year-old fillies battle for victory in the ultimate test of their staying credentials.


SEPPELT WINES STAKES DAY – SAT 09 Nov 19

Friends, fun and the finale of Cup Week, Seppelt Wines Stakes Day is a day at Flemington not to be missed. The pace on-track doesn’t slow though with two Group 1 races. The illustrious A$2 million Group 1 Seppelt Mackinnon Stakes is the ultimate weight-for-age test for middle distance horses at Australia’s premier track, while the $1 million Group 1 VRC Sprint Classic will see some of the world’s fastest horses fly up the famous Flemington straight. Seppelt Wines Stakes Day is the fastest growing raceday with crowds topping 80,000 in recent years.
