From Pony Putt to frozen cocktails and plenty of fun free activities for the kids, don't miss Chester Manifold Stakes Day at Flemington this Saturday 12th January.
Following an amazing day at Flemington for NYD Raceday, summer racing continues this Saturday 12th January with Chester Manifold Stakes Day. The weather is looking great and the grounds have never looked better! Try your luck at Pony Putt which makes it return to the Front Lawn, cool-off with frozen cocktails from the Front Lawn Bar, delight the kids with face painting and balloon art on the Flemington Family Lawn and end the day relaxing to acoustic tunes.
Action on the Track
Check out Skiddaw, who was purchased for $240,000 in the 2018 Magic Millions sale on the Gold Coast, having his first start in race 1. Race 3 will see All-Star Mile nominee So Si Bon looking to make it two in a row after winning the Listed Lord Stakes at Caulfield on Boxing day, his first win in 831 days. But he’ll need to watch out for Torgersen who ran 2nd to So Si Bon and will be looking to go one better this Saturday.
Summer on the Lawn
Experience the splendour of summer racing at Flemington on the Front Lawn. Chill-out to acoustic tunes, while sipping frozen margaritas and daiquiris from the bar. Grab a tasty meal from the BBQ featuring gourmet hot dogs, lamb skewers, burgers and loaded fries. Test your skills with lawn games, including giant Connect 4 and Jenga. And of course it’s the perfect spot to witness the excitement of every race. This is a free space with food and beverages available for purchase.
Pony Putt returns to Flemington in January with competitions running after races 2 and 6. It’s free to enter and there’s plenty of prizes up for grabs! Please note participants must be 18+ and putts are limited to one per person during competition times.
Flemington Family Lawn
There will be plenty of fun free activities on the Flemington Family Lawn including games, face painting, balloon artists, and a soft play area for the little ones.
Champions of the turf, Efficient and Prince of Penzance will be joining us at Flemington to meet their fans. Say hello as they parade around the Mounting Yard and treat them to a carrot or two in the horse stalls throughout the day.
