Kick start the new racing season at Flemington.
Join us for the culmination of winter racing at Flemington and the start of a new racing season.
The first race day of the new season at Flemington has a nine-race card boasting the Group 3 Aurie's Star Handicap, the first Group race of the Melbourne racing season, which is renowned as a starting point for the stars of the spring.
Off the track, there’s still plenty of wonderful winter experiences on offer. This is members last chance to enjoy The Lobby High Tea in The Club Stand Lobby and the Woodland Bar in The Atrium. In Saintly Place, racegoers can enjoy billiards, foosball and a DJ in The Lounge for one final race day.
Take in the lively atmosphere of The Atrium from the comfort of our cosy lounge bar. Sink into leather chesterfield lounges and surround yourself in snuggly textures with a drink in hand, all while taking in the racing action live on TV.
The high-backed club chairs, crackling fireplaces and equestrian memorabilia in The Club Stand lobby will make the perfect space to stay cosy during winter racing. Relaxing live music will entertain you between races while our waiters serve from a menu of light bites and winter drinks.
Witness every finish while relaxing with mates in The Lounge inside Saintly Place West this winter. With quick access to the Winning Post, comfy lounges, billiards and foosball, craft beers, dude-food favourites and live tunes, The Lounge is the best spot to enjoy all the racing action and is a free space for all racegoers.
Champions of the turf, Chief De Beers (Stall 86) and Silent Witness (Stall 87), will be joining us at Flemington to meet their fans. Meet these legends as they parade around the Mounting Yard throughout the day following race 2 (12:15pm) and race 4 (1:30pm).
