Stakes Day

Friends, fun and the finale of Cup Week, Stakes Day at Flemington is not to be missed. It’s the culmination of an amazing week of racing, fashion and entertainment. Let your hair and heels down a little as the pace off the track softens for a family-friendly day out.

On-track the pace doesn’t slow down with two Group 1 races. The illustrious AUD$2 million Group 1 LKS Mackinnon Stakes is the ultimate weight-for-age test for middle distance horses at Australia’s premier track, while the AUD$1 million Group 1 Darley Classic will see some of the world’s fastest horses fly up the famous Flemington straight.

It’s also a big day for fashion’s future trendsetters with Stakes Day Fashions on the Field focusing on children and family. With a fun, friendly atmosphere, an abundance of free activities for children, as well as great racing, Stakes Day is the perfect way to finish Cup Week.
