Group 1 Kennedy Australian Guineas


A festival of food and fun to awaken the senses.

Nothing pairs better with heart-stopping Group 1 thoroughbred racing, than an exquisite feast for the senses taking place this Australian Guineas Day.

This celebrated race day will see an explosion of heavenly tastes and aromas greet racegoers from the very moment they arrive.

Here’s just a ‘taste’ of what you can look forward to: a super-sized Front Lawn Beer Garden with pop-up restaurants, roving wine tastings and multiple stages featuring live music; circus-themed fun, carnival rides and games for the kids in the brand new Little Big Top in The Picnic Lawn; and a specialty curated menu by Nick Mahlook, Soda Fish Lakes Entrance and Bodee Price, Brown Brothers Restaurant across selected dining venues and restaurants.

Along with the food-focused festival atmosphere, the racing excitement will be super-sized too. The day boasts a blue-blooded, Group 1 line-up featuring the $1,000,000 Group 1 Kennedy Australian Guineas (1600m). Witness the best three-year-olds in training charging to the Winning Post in this stallion-making race.
