Sydney’s world-famous Royal Randwick hosts Australia’s richest raceday this Saturday for the sixth running of the $15 million TAB Everest and a celebration of a thoroughbred racing and entertainment phenomenon.
General Admission tickets at just $45 via theraces.com.au provides entry to Royal Randwick for a ten-race card, a post-racing concert from iconic music act Peking Duk in the spectacular Theatre Of The Horse and access to the new public $46 million Winx Stand.

Australian Turf Club Chief Executive Jamie Barkley said Sydney’s Spring racing was the hottest ticket in town.

“General Admission tickets are the best way to experience live the world’s fastest horses and Sydney’s most exciting event in Spring.’’
