Introduction

While the race meeting will be conducted with no spectators in accordance with ongoing directive from Federal Government and NSW Health authorities, we are delighted to share with you a guide on how to celebrate a raceday at home including broadcast information, how to dress for racing at your place, and how to create our exclusive dishes.  Share how you’re celebrating with us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter tagging @atc_races and using #FunOffTrack.

Celebrate Racing At Home

How to watch the races

Don’t miss a minute of the racing action broadcast live and free on Channel 7 from 12.00pm AEST.

You can also view the live action on Sky Racing 1 through Foxtel – simply switch to Channel 526, or you can tune in via the TAB App.

What to wear

Enjoying a raceday at home is the perfect excuse to get out of your lounge-wear and get your glam on, while you dress up to celebrate the occasion.

Whether it’s flamboyant millinery, your finest suit or elegant dress, don’t be afraid to dress up and stay in for a day in front of the races.

And of course, don’t forget to share your raceday look with us on social media with #FunOffTrack.

What to Eat

Put together a charcuterie board with what you already have, we suggest mixing your favourite cheeses and cured meats then add snacks like fruit, nuts, vegetables, crackers and dips.

Or, let the experts do it for you. Catalina Rose Bay are offering raceday hampers with freshly shucked oysters and other favourites, paired with a selection of beverages, delivered to your door, while Bistro Moncur invite you to select your favourite dishes from their delectable à la carte raceday take-away menu.

What to drink

When it comes to beer, Heineken is the official beer of Royal Randwick, so Heineken should be your first choice. Try the low calorie and low carb option, Heineken 3, or an alcohol-free beer, Heineken 0.0.

For Champagne celebrations, enjoy a bottle of Moët & Chandon, and don’t forget to show off your #MoëtMoment.

Enjoy the Schweppes Signature Series, perfect on their own or mixed into your favourite cocktail if you’re feeling creative.

What to do between races

Run a virtual sweepstake with your friends; you can split the prizemoney for first, second, third and last, or the winner can take it all.

Alternatively, jump on Zoom and hold your very own horse auction, where each horse in the race is auctioned off. The favourite will go for a higher price than the longshot. Use the auction money as a pool, where the winner takes all.

Staying Social

Follow us on instafacebook and twitter (which is more for racing purists).

Be sure to post your photos of you celebrating the races from home to Instagram, Facebook or Twitter tagging @atc_races with #FunOffTrack.

So let’s all stay safe, stay social and stay tuned to the world’s best racing action live on TV – together at home!
