The fun and live action of a day at the track during Sydney’s sparkling Spring continues for a third consecutive week at Royal Randwick this Saturday, offering racegoers an array of entertainment options on and off the track.
Royal Randwick has played host to two spectacular Saturdays of racing and entertainment, which continues this week with Group and Listed racing on City Tattersalls Club Cup Day, run in conjunction with all of the Caulfield Cup action live from down south.
Headlining the off-track action at Royal Randwick will be hugely popular DJ Havana Brown, who will perform a free live set on the Leger Lawn commencing at 5.30pm.
Customers will also have a chance to have photos taken at a special 360 degree photo experience with Havana Brown, from 1-1.30pm on the Octagonal Lawn.
Australian Turf Club Chief Operating Officer Tony Partridge said Royal Randwick had become Sydney’s favourite spring playground for live racing and entertainment.
“The Spring celebration is in full swing at Royal Randwick. The atmosphere over the last two weeks has been electric and we are looking forward to that building again this weekend as we welcome Havana Brown to the track,’’ Mr Partridge said.
“Our Members and general admission guests can take advantage of a full range of dining and entertainment options, from the popular The Stables on Level 4 right through to the buzz of the Leger Lawn in the middle of all the action.’’
All general admission tickets booked at www.theraces.com.au before midday on Friday will also receive a complimentary flute of Moët & Chandon Brut Imperial, valued at $25.
TAB Rewards and account holders will be admitted free to Royal Randwick when they show their card at the gates.
The popular Bucket List Beach Club Marquee – in the centre of Royal Randwick’s social playground on the Leger Lawn – also continues, one of a range of areas where customers can mix the fun of a day at the track as the horses thunder past the 200m mark of the famous Royal Randwick straight.
The Caulfield Cup will be shown live across Royal Randwick, including on the infield on the largest screen in the southern hemisphere.
Gun young Royal Randwick trainer James Cummings (pictured below) will be blazing the trail of his famous grandfather Bart this Saturday as he tries to qualify promising stayer Ruling Dynasty for the Melbourne Cup in the $100,000 Listed City Tattersalls Club Cup.
Ruling Dynasty ($6 TAB Fixed Odds) takes on a quality field including the Chris Waller pair of Beaten Up ($2.40 TAB Fixed Odds) and Junoob ($7 TAB Fixed Odds), and Gai Waterhouse’s former Schweppes Sydney Cup winner The Offer ($5 TAB Fixed Odds).
Saturday’s strong card at Royal Randwick – as racing fans also keep an eye on the Caulfield Cup meeting down south – includes a cracking field of sprinters in the $150,000 Listed City Tattersalls Club Lightning, headed by Fell Swoop ($3.20 TAB Fixed Odds), and the 1200m Royal Randwick track record holder That’s A Good Idea ($6 TAB Fixed Odds).
And a big field in the final race – the Group 3 $125,000 City Tattersalls Club Nivison – will offer plenty of value for punters as the final leg of the Quaddie, as well as the TAB Big 6, which carries a $50,000 jackpot into the pool. The early joint TAB favourites are Sultry Feeling and Fine Mist ($5 TAB Fixed Odds).
Royal Randwick offers free high-capacity WiFi across the racecourse precinct and free parking.
Buses run from Eddy Avenue direct to the course, with return services later in the day, whilst free buses run from the Alison Rd bays 3 and 4 to The Star.
