Horse Racing | Standish Handicap Day

Standish Handicap Day is the first day of the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival. Held at the famous Flemington Racecourse, it hosts a number of Listed and Group races, headlined by the Group 3 Standish Handicap. It may only appear to be a low-key race day, but it certainly has its place in the Carnival, with trainers and jockeys from across the state participating.

Predominately held on New Year’s Day, is has become a tradition for revellers to hit the track after a festive celebrations in the CBD wind down, making it one of the must-attend events for socialites and racing enthusiasts.
