Current as at 8 April 2021.
The Victoria Racing Club is delighted to officially welcome up to 15,000 spectators to Flemington.
Our COVID-safe event approval from the Victorian Government allows for greater flexibility of movement on course within two separate zones. Each zone is capped at no more than 7,500 spectators, ensuring the safety of racegoers whilst providing a more familiar race day experience.
Patrons will not be required to wear a mask on course, but are to carry one and are encouraged to wear it when they cannot socially distance.
With spacious grounds to facilitate physical distancing and comprehensive COVID-safe protocols in place, we look forward to the day – hopefully very soon – that we can welcome every racing fan back to Flemington.
Tickets for the upcoming ANZAC Day Race Day are on sale now through Ticketek.com.au.
This page will serve as an information hub for VRC members and our community, which we’ll update regularly as new information relevant to members, partners, industry participants and the wider public comes to hand, as well as updates on Flemington events. If you require specific information, please contact our Customer Service team by emailing email@example.com.
