Royal Randwick’s massive month of Spring racing continues this Saturday at the inaugural Men Of League Cox Plate Day, bringing Sydney punters and sporting fans together on one of Australian racing’s favourite days of the year.
Crowds have flocked to Royal Randwick through October as racing has set the pace for Sydney’s social and sporting calendar in a fun and vibrant atmosphere on track.
This Saturday marks a new program of racing at Royal Randwick for a fourth consecutive week in the middle of Spring, during the Australian Turf Club’s bumper Sydney Spring Carnival.
Royal Randwick will feature a nine-race card of live action on track as punters also take in all of the excitement and drama of the Cox Plate, featuring some of the stars of Sydney racing, Winx, Kermadec and Preferment trained by Chris Waller, Pornichet for Gai Waterhouse, and Hartnell and Complacent from the John O’Shea led Godolphin team.
Australian Turf Club customers at Royal Randwick continue to enjoy a range of offers and dining options at www.theraces.com.au including a complementary glass of Moët & Chandon Imperial Brut on arrival for general admission ticket holders who book online before midday on Friday.
The Bucket List Beach Club Marquee – part of Royal Randwick’s social playground – has also proved hugely popular in its first appearance at Royal Randwick.
Australian Turf Club Chief Operating Officer Tony Partridge said a day at Royal Randwick during Spring Carnival racing combined all of the elements Sydneysiders loved.
“Our city loves its sport, and we love to relax and have fun with friends in the outdoors during this beautiful time of the year, so the past three weeks at Royal Randwick have been the perfect playground,’’ Mr Partridge said.
“The combination of exciting racing on the track with all of the live entertainment and atmosphere throughout the afternoon are making the Sydney Spring Carnival bigger and better every year.
“Everyone on course at Royal Randwick can watch the excitement of one of Australia’s greatest weight for age races the Cox Plate live on the southern hemisphere’s biggest screen.’’
