Friends, fun and the finale of Cup Week, Seppelt Wines Stakes Day is a day at Flemington not to be missed. It’s a celebration of the week that’s just been, filled with quality racing, fashion and entertainment. Let the hair and heels down a little as the pace off the track softens for a family friendly day out.

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.

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, Seppelt Wines Stakes Day is the perfect way to finish Cup Week.

In honour of Remembrance Day, a commemorative service will be taking place in the Mounting Yard, followed by one minute's silence at approximately 11:04am. Following the service, RSL volunteers will be selling commemorative poppies. All proceeds go to help veterans and their families through the Poppy Appeal.
