The Epsom Handicap Day is one of the feature days of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival. Held at the world-class Royal Randwick Racecourse, it features three feature Group 1 races - the Epsom Handicap, The Metropolitan and the Flight Stakes. There is over $2 million in prize money up for grabs on the day, which also includes the Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes, the Group 2 Premiere Stakes and the Group 3 Craven Plate.
While the equine entertainment on the track is what draws the crowds, there is always fun for everyone. With live entertainment, Fashions on the Field and a host of lavish corporate marquees around the course, this day also appeals to socialites from across Sydney.
