Fun was the name of the game at the Paramount+ Stakes Day.

The final day of an extraordinary Cup Week saw the competitive racing and endless style continue to elevate.

Young and old took part in a full day of partying that featured the very best in music, fash-ion and food. With the crowds revelling and dancing from first race to last and even beyond, the horses on course took the excitement even higher. 7yo Gelding Zaaki added a third Aus-tralian Group 1 to the trophy shelf by taking out the day's feature, the $2 million Group 1 Paramount+ Mackinnon Stakes.

It was a fitting win that reflected the joyous spirit of revellers everywhere!
