About Living Legends

Living Legends provides a home to some of Australia's greatest retired racehorses so that these champions of the turf can live happy and tranquil lives after their celebrated racing careers.

The VRC has a longstanding partnership with Living Legends as part of the Club’s wider focus on equine and racing industry welfare. The VRC’s Equine Wellbeing Fund, established in late 2019, saw the VRC invest $220,000 over the next three years in Living Legends, guaranteeing former champion racehorses a home for life and providing support for the farm to continue the wonderful work it does to care for the industry’s retired equine stars.

As part of the VRC’s partnership with Living Legends, two champion equine athletes from the farm visit Flemington every race day. You can find them in the horse stalls or watch them parading around the Mounting Yard on a regular day. Unfortunately we can’t celebrate the stars on course this year but we encourage you to share your love for the Living Legends via the VRC social media channels.
