Acknowledging the local residents, businesses and organisations that make up the fabric of the local Flemington community.

VRC Community Race Day acknowledged the local residents, businesses and organisations that make up the fabric of the local Flemington community.

The nine-race card on VRC Community Race Day featured heats of the Flemington Winter Series, including Heat 5 of the Banjo Patterson Series which last year saw Grand Promenade continue on the Road to the Lexus Melbourne Cup.

Saturday 4 June 2022

A strong crowd at Flemington on a wonderful winter's day witnessed a great day of racing, highlighted by an incredible from-last-to-first victory by Looks Like Elvis in the VRC-CRV Winter Championship Series Plate.

Here is a full wrap of today's 9-race card.
