Six excellent reasons to be at Royal Randwick on Bentley Cup Day
October 20, 2020
Seeing as interstate travel is off the cards for the time being, you can’t beat being at the track on Bentley Cup Day, and Royal Randwick will be pumping. If you’ve missed the racing atmosphere lately, Royal Randwick will be the place to be.
You can’t beat the view
When you think about it, Royal Randwick’s Bentley Cup Day celebrations provide one of the best views anywhere of the race that stops the nation. Watch it live on the largest super-screen in the southern hemisphere, and those thoroughbreds will be 11 metres tall.
It feels right to dress up
You can frock up in finery for race day, knowing that you’ll be at an actual racetrack. It’s just that bit more real than wearing your best race attire to a bar or restaurant. Not that there’s anything wrong with that…but there’s something super-special about holding onto your hat in the breeze while hooves go thundering past.
Twice the action
Royal Randwick has a live racing programme as well as the Melbourne action on the big screen. So effectively, you’re in two places at once! Due to current Covid-19 restrictions patrons currently must be seated and will need to remain being seated when consuming alcohol. However, at Royal Randwick patrons are allowed to stand whilst watching races but then must return to their seats after each race has concluded.
You’re guaranteed a table and seat!
There’s nothing worse than arriving at the races and you can’t score yourself a table! Due to Covid regulations, each ticket includes a designated seat with a specified ticketed area, which means there is absolutely no way you will be without a table. However, you still will need to get in early for the best spot, especially if you want views of the iconic track. Each ticketed area offers full amenities, including wagering facilities, toilets, sophisticated pop-up bars and convenient food stalls – so no matter where you are, you won’t miss out on all the perks. Guests’ movement to other ticket zones will be restricted but as long as you walk with purpose you can enjoy the Theatre of the Horse and day-stalls!
Get your fun back on track for Bentley Cup Day at Royal Randwick. Celebrate with colleagues and friends, witness the ‘race that stops the nation’ from Flemington live on one of the southern hemisphere’s largest outdoor screens, enjoy live music duo’s and get closer to the action with a live nine race card. For those wanting to make the occasion more special, an unrivalled hospitality experience awaits, from stylish Cocktail parties and Champagne bars to the unsurpassed views and traditions of Grandstand dining.

Seeing as flying to Melbourne is currently off the cards, you’re already saving money. And anyway let’s face it, an Uber, taxi, bus or even a tank of your own petrol – costs a lot less than a plane fare to Melbourne. Win/Win!
As per our COVID-19 exemption from NSW Health, we request that patrons must wear a mask when not seated.
Capacity will be restricted so we advise booking early by selecting your seat or hospitality today. Any release of further general admission reserve tickets will be closer to the event. To view raceday hospitality options for Bentley Cup Day, click here.
