The VRC is proud to have a longstanding partnership with Living Legends and to commemorate this relationship seven races have been named in honour of the Living Legends who share a special connection to Flemington.
The highlight of the nine-race card will be the Listed Hilton Nicholas Straight Six (1200m) named in honour of former VRC Chairman Hilton Nicholas.

Living Legends are an integral part of every race day at Flemington and we are sad that they can’t be on course this Saturday - for the race day named in their honour. However this won’t stop us celebrating their wonderful achievements from home. Read the star studded Living Legends roll call here.
In April this year, the racing world was saddened by news that one of Australia’s best racehorses, Might and Power had died. Might and Power was honoured with a final visit to Flemington Racecourse before being laid to rest on May 14th.
Living Legends plays an important role within the racing industry to rehome retired thoroughbreds. In 2019 the VRC pledged a portion of the VRC Equine Wellbeing Fund to Living Legends which will support the rehoming of retired racehorses and continue the well-established relationship for years to come.
