Allow plenty of time to explore the course to ensure the best vantage point for viewing the race.
Dress to impress
Fashion has become nearly as important as the race itself. Since this is a spring carnival why not add a splash of color to your outfit. Ladies, today is the day to break out your favorite hat or headpiece and gents, dust off your best three-piece suit (leave the jeans and sandals at home).
Catch a glimpse of the contenders
It is possible to view the horses in saddlecloth order as they enter the Parade Ring or later in the Mounting Yard just prior to the race.
Back a winner
Experience the race in true Australian fashion by having a 'flutter' (placing a bet). Whether $1 or $1000, the excitement of cheering your horse on to the finish is worth the wager. Remember to bet responsibly and within your limit!
