Say hello to the new year at Flemington.

Enjoy the first day of the new year with a relaxed race day. Whether you’re in the mood for a casual picnic amongst our gorgeous gardens or want to sit back and relax to acoustic tunes, there’s so many ways to enjoy the start of 2020 at Flemington.

The first race day of the new decade features the Listed Bagot Handicap for stayers and the Group 3 Standish Handicap for sprinters down the famous Flemington straight.

VRC members and guests can chill out to laid-back tunes on the Balcony Bar in The Atrium or keep their new year celebrations going after the last with extended hours in The Roof Garden and G.H.Mumm Champagne Bar.
