The nine-race card will feature heat four of the VRC-CRV Winter Championship Series for open milers, heat seven of the All Victorian Sprint Series for open sprinters, heat four of the Banjo Paterson Series for stayers, heat three of the Leilani Series for mares and heat four of the Silver Bowl Series for three-year-old milers. These fantastic winter series ensure great racing throughout the off-season before culminating in the grand finals on Flemington Finals Day.
Don’t miss the wonderful winter experiences across the course, from The Lounge with billiards in Saintly Place and for our VRC members and their guests their will be live jazz and extravagant shiraz in The Roof Garden, or relaxing with mulled wine on chesterfield lounges in the Woodland Bar.
VRC Members - The Mumm Champagne Bar will be open until 7:30pm (last drinks at 7pm) so gather a group and enjoy a relaxed day trackside. There will be a free shuttle bus running between 5pm to 7:45pm from the Flemington Drive taxi rank to Newmarket Station.
