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

The final day of an extraordinary Melbourne Cup Week at Flemington Racecourse 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, fashion 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.

Seven year old gelding Zaaki added a third Australian 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!
