Horse Racing | Australian Cup Day

Australian Cup Day is one of the biggest race days of the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival. Held at the famous Flemington racecourse, which is also home to the Group 1 Melbourne Cup and the Group 1 Emirates Stakes, the day boasts more than $3 million in prize money and attracts some of the best trainers and jockeys from around the country. Headlined by the Group 1 Australian Cup, it also features the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap, the Group 2 VRC Sires Produce Stakes and the Group 2 Kewney Stakes.

The majority of the entertainment may be out on the track, but Australian Cup Day caters for everyone, with Fashions on the Field and live entertainment also offered. Some great horses have featured on ‘Super Saturday’ in the past from Northerly to Makybe Diva (Australian Cup), and Miss Andretti to Black Caviar (Newmarket Handicap).
