Amongst the fashion, food and social experience, the Spring Racing Carnival is the ultimate racing period for Group 1 thoroughbred racing in Australia.
The Spring Racing Carnival has the racing that matters, where reputations are carved and legends are born. Stablehands rise with the sun and jockeys are motivated to push the boundaries of endurance. Trainers work relentlessly around the clock, preparing their horses for the big day. The event draws in the best from the international racing scene, all vying for the prestige of winning the major events including the BMW Caulfield Cup, William Hill Cox Plate and the Emirates Melbourne Cup.
