Celebration in the Capital for the race that stops the nation

This years’ ACTTAB Melbourne Cup Race Day at Thoroughbred Park has additional entertainment as part of the race that stops the nation.  

Along with the Fool Factory and Myer Fashions on the field you can also have your picture taken with the Fool Factory Characters or enjoy the newest addition to the Canberra Racing Club feature days – The Seppelt Lawn Bar.  This Bar will be located on the front lawns just to the left of the Betting Ring entrance.  The Bar will be stocked with Seppelt Salinger NV and other wines.  

Our local favourite musician Chicago Charles will strum the afternoon away on his guitar in this public area, only 100 people are allowed access at the one time.  Staff from ZAIJA will also be located in the bar area at the ready with hair straighteners, quick touch ups to makeup and massages.    

The Girls, Girls, Girls Trick and Stunt Riders will perform on the track throughout the day.  This popular exhibit was on display at the Black Opal Stakes and will return especially for the ACTTAB Melbourne Cup Race Day.

Myer scouts will also be on the lookout for potential Myer Face of
Canberra Racing contestants for the 2014 title.    

Tickets can be purchased at the gate on the day or via Ticketek.  

Gates open at 9:30am with the first local race at 12:37pm
