Join us for a day of recognition and racing.

Recognition Race Day acknowledges the valued contribution of past and current officials, partners, and employees of the VRC.

On the track, the feature race sees the apprentices take centre stage with the final of the Wilson Medic One Rising Star series, while the Byerley Handicap provides an opportunity for promising young stayers to earn ballot exemption for this year’s Group 1 AAMI Victoria Derby and/or Group 1 Kennedy Oaks.

For our members in The Club Stand, Christmas comes early in The Dining Room with a sumptuous traditional Christmas feast, carolers and a special visit from Santa. The Roof Garden will transform into a rollicking comedy lounge, where some of Melbourne’s best comedians will have you laughing the day away. In Saintly Place, all racegoers can enjoy a game of billiards and a bevvy in The Lounge.
