ANZAC Day Race Day – Wednesday 26 April update

26 April 2023 Written by VRC

Following Racing Victoria’s advice that the ANZAC Day Race Day would not be rescheduled at Flemington, three of the Flemington races have been distributed to other race meetings and VRC members will be afforded access.

The William Newton VC Handicap (2000m) will be run at Pakenham on Thursday 27 April and the Listed ANZAC Day Stakes (1400m) and Listed VRC St Leger (now 3000m) will be run at Sandown on Saturday 29 April.  

VRC members can access the Members Enclosure at both Pakenham Racecourse (on Thursday) and Sandown Racecourse (on Saturday) by scanning their current VRC membership card. We thank the Pakenham Racing Club and Melbourne Racing Club (MRC) for their cooperation.

As a result of the ANZAC Day Race Day not being rescheduled, those who booked dining or Daily Guest Tickets will receive a full refund of their purchase, via Ticketmaster in the coming days.
