AAMI Victoria Derby Day

  • Flemington Racecourse 448 Epsom Road Flemington, VIC, 3031 Australia (map)

Beautiful bold blacks and whites set the scene of the 2016 Melbourne Cup Carnival’s fusion of fashion and first-class racing, the lavish AAMI Victoria Derby Day

Regarded as one of the most prestigious days of racing in Australasia, AAMI Victoria Derby Dayfeatures a card of nine Group races, four at the elite Group 1 level. The feature Group 1 AAMI Victoria Derby, worth over A$1.5 million, is Australia's premier staying classic for 3 year olds. 

Off the track, the fashion stakes are equally impressive, thanks to the Myer Fashions on the Field competition for both men and women. Ladies embrace the traditional black and white colour scheme, while men often choose to wear a grey morning suit and top hat, creating classic racing elegance in a larger than life world of glamour and sophistication.
