The Melbourne Cup Carnival comes to a playful close with a fun day for the family on Emirates Stakes Day, the fastest growing raceday of the carnival.
The racing is outstanding with two Group 1 races. The illustrious A$1 million Group 1 Emirates Stakes, Victoria’s premier 1600m event, and The Darley Classic, a leg of the Global Sprint Challenge, an international series of the world’s greatest short distance races.
It’s also a big day for fashion’s smaller folk with Emirates Stakes Day Fashions on the Field, when the next generation of style-conscious racegoers parade their racewear ensembles on the catwalk. With a fun, family friendly atmosphere, an abundance of free activities for children, as well as great racing, Emirates Stakes Day is the perfect way to farewell the Melbourne Cup Carnival for another year.
