As part of the vision of Australian Turf Club and Racing NSW to reinforce Royal Randwick’s reputation as a world class racing venue, the spectacular WINX Stand, a new two-storey state-of-the-art trackside facility will open from The Agency Villiers Day on 11 December. Positioned at the southern end of the existing QEII Grandstand, the WINX Stand is designed to provide increased weather protection and significantly enhance the experience for General Admission patrons on racedays.
The Pavilion at WINX is a 100m long ground-floor space offering easy access to stellar racing views from its accompanying trackside lawn. Floor-to-ceiling glass and high ceilings allows natural light to cascade through the room which includes numerous bars, varied innovative food concessions, multiple screens, and convenient wagering facilities.
On the first floor is The Gallery, featuring two vibrant, stylish and modern rooms joined by a sweeping open-air outdoor terrace and bar offering panoramic vistas over the picturesque home straight.
Both floors of the WINX Stand will be accessible to all Members and General Admission patrons. Guests in General Admission also continue to have access to the Kensington Room in the QEII Grandstand and the various lawns both adjacent to the Theatre of the Horse and trackside. General Admission tickets start from $40 at Royal Randwick for the Summer Festival of Racing.
WINX will also become Sydney’s newest major large-scale events centre, able to host events from intimate to large-scale, including conferences, meetings, product launches, parties, galas, weddings, exhibitions and major public occasions such as festivals and concerts.
