If you could see a potential future Lexus Melbourne Cup winner run an exhilarating 2000m spring race, you’d jump at the chance.

Turnbull Stakes Day at Flemington is the chance you’ve been waiting for.

On this day, you’ll be treated to some of the finest thoroughbred racing in Australia — especially in the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes. It's a breathtaking event that has produced multiple winners of the Lexus Melbourne Cup over the years.
