Horse Racing | Australian Guineas Day

Australian Guineas Day is one of the main race days during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival. It is the host to many prominent events, such as the Group 1 Australian Guineas and the Group 3 Frances Tressady Stakes. It tends to attracts punters and socialites from across the state, and has been one of the main feature days on the Australian Racing Calendar. Guineas Day is held at the world-class Flemington Racecourse, which is host to a number of high-quality events, such as the Group 1 Melbourne Cup, the Group 1 Victoria Derby and the Group 1 Emirates Stakes. The day usually is highlighted by a nine race card, featuring a Group 1, two Group 2s, three Listed Races and three other $100,000 events.

Total prize money on the big day exceeds $1.3m. To make Australian Guineas Day a family affair, the VRC offers free children’s activities in the Kids’ Zone. It caters for youngsters of all ages with outdoor games and pony rides, as well as arts and craft activities. The meeting offers families the opportunity to enjoy one of Australia’s premier racks, outstanding racing, live entertainment and a host of activities in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
