Welcome to the 2022/23 racing season

Some of the potential stars of the upcoming Melbourne Cup Carnival made their return to Flemington on VRC Season Premiere Race Day.

The feature race of the day, the Group 3 Aurie's Star Handicap (1200m), has historically been a stepping stone to stakes-race success for horses including So Si Bon, I Am A Star and Temple Of Boom, as well as future Group 1 winners, Voodoo Lad, Hey Doc, Niconero and Fields Of Omagh.

Feature race

Group 3 Aurie's Star Handicap (1200m)

Promising stayer Horrifying is likely to head to the Bart Cummings on Turnbull Stakes Day to try and win a spot in this year's Lexus Melbourne Cup after another eye-catching win at Flemington.

Trained by Mark and Levi Kavanagh, and ridden by 2019 Cup-winning jockey Craig Williams, Horrifying won a hard-fought battle to the line to claim his third win from his last four starts.
