Fast finishes down the famous Flemington Straight!
In an exciting new concept for Headquarters, ‘Rapid Racing’ will debut on February Twilight Race Day, consisting of an all-sprint card with every race to take place down the famous Flemington straight. The shorter, faster program of seven races down the shoot will form the inaugural Resimax Group Jockeys Challenge Trophy, with riders divided into two teams – metro and country – which will compete on a points basis over the course of the evening to win the coveted trophy.

In a continuing effort to support the Victorian equine community affected by bushfires, there will be many ways to make a contribution across the racecourse, including a raffle for two amazing money can’t buy race day experiences, with all funds going to The Salvation Army Disaster Appeal for bushfire relief.
We are also offering VRC members the opportunity to purchase Members Guest Passes for a gold coin donation which will go towards the Victorian Bushfire Appeal. Simply show your membership card, donate a gold coin and collect your guest passes at the ticketing booths located at the Main Entrance, at Flemington Racecourse Station and outside Hill Gate on the day.
