We want to say thank you.

Free entry. Walk-ups welcome. 

Sydney, we don’t need to tell you that its been a tough year but we simply want to say thank you to our local community and the racing industry with a special FREE festive raceday including what promises to be a memorable post-racing Christmas show.

Start your seasonal celebrations with free family Twilight racing – from early afternoon into the evening. As well as a myriad of bars and restaurants for the social crowd, there will be a special visit from Santa for our younger racegoers to enjoy throughout the day.

After racing, stars of the turf will light our spectacular festive tree, there will be a parade by Santa & friends plus a special free concert by pop princess Samantha Jade who will sing your Christmas favourites.

To be COVIDSafe, your raceday experience will be a little different this Summer. Learn more here or click here to view location of each ticket.

While entry is free and walk-ups welcome we ask that all guests pre-register their attendance online below or at Gate B on the day to secure their free ticket.
