The Australian Turf Club is pleased to unveil newly refurbished spaces within the historic Official Stand at Royal Randwick Racecourse which were opened to Members on Fujitsu George Main Stakes Day, Saturday 19 September.
The finishing touches were made to the Doncaster Room and The Oaks Café ahead of the Everest Carnival opening, with new paint, carpet, furniture and state-of-the-art technology giving these popular Members spaces a new amenity.
The Official Stand was constructed in 1886 and offers prime views of the track across Royal Randwick for ATC Members and their Guests.
Australian Turf Club Executive General Manager Infrastructure and Strategic Projects Piers Thompson said: “Members are our most loyal and passionate supporters and we are delighted to further enhance these spaces in time for the Everest Carnival.
“We have been careful to maintain the historical features and beautiful architecture and character inside these rooms whilst adding some modern touches and technology for Members to fully enjoy their racedays.’’
Australian Turf Club Executive General Manager Member and Customer Experience Jane Coles said: “Given the circumstances this year has presented, The Australian Turf Club has been looking at different ways to make the raceday experience for Members even better including making available more spaces allowed under NSW Government Public Health Orders.
“Whilst we were unable to host members during the Autumn we took the time to invest in these Members spaces which provide a superb atmosphere in seated COVIDSafe areas.”
All Members attendance throughout Everest Carnival must be pre-registered online, with Members selecting a seating zone to spend the day. If you’re an ATC Member, please click here to find out more and reserve your seat.
