3:50pm - AAMI Victoria Derby
Cup Week starts with a fusion of monochrome fashion, first-class racing and celebrations at the AAMI Victoria Derby Day.
Regarded as one of the most prestigious days of racing of the spring, AAMI Victoria Derby Day features a card of nine Group races, four at the elite Group 1 level. The feature Group 1 AAMI Victoria Derby, worth over AUD $2 million, is Australia's premier staying classic for three year olds.
Off the track, the fashion stakes are equally impressive, thanks to the Myer Fashions on the Field competition for both men and women. Ladies embrace the traditional black and white palette, while men often choose to wear a grey morning suit and top hat, creating classic racing elegance in a larger than life world of glamour and sophistication.
Known for their diverse sound and mix influences, electro-pop outfit Miami Horror will feature in The Park on AAMI Victoria Derby Day.
AAMI Victoria Derby Day will feature the electronic dance music of ARIA Award nominee Hayden James.
The Park is the home of Myer Fashions on the Field, Australia's largest and most prestigious outdoor fashion event. This iconic celebration of fashion and racing will see stylish women, men and families from around Australia showcasing their beautiful style and incredible creations.
Some of Melbourne’s favourite foodie destinations will pop up in The Park, with a range of tasty cuisines and delicious eats. Plus indulge in an array of sips in stylish bars and luxe lounges.
