Join us to celebrate the yuletide spirit at Flemington for VRC Christmas Race Day.

For our final race day of the year we embrace the joy and sense of community the festive season brings.

On the track the nine-race program will see some competitive fields, especially among the three-year-old races the Lexus Holiday Plate (1200m) and TAB App Trophy (1400m).

While off the course, enjoy live Christmas carolers and other Christmas themed entertainment, including Santa and his elves. Plus, the return of the Christmas Kingdom down in the Elms area, with special access for Phar Lap Club members.

Live musical entertainment after the last will add to the festivities of the day in The Roof Garden, The G.H. Mumm Champagne Bar and on the Members Lawn.
