VRC Standish Handicap Race Day
A new highlight race day on the summer racing calendar.
The VRC Standish Handicap Race Day features the Group 3 Standish Handicap (1200m) – providing the winner automatic entry into the Group 1 Yulong Stud Newmarket Handicap (1200m) on Saturday 9 March.
The race is named in honour of former VRC Chairman Captain Frederick Standish – and for the first time, it now has its own standalone race day featuring on the summer racing calendar.
The Front Lawn will be an ideal spot to enjoy all the races with lots of seating options, food trucks, bars, easy access to the Saintly Place Sports Bar, and the VRC Punters Club. Families will love the Flemington Family Lawn in The Elms where the kids can enjoy various games and entertainment.
The festivities of the day continue after the last for members in The Roof Garden, and the G.H. Mumm Champagne Bar.
PLEASE NOTE: The Byerley in The Club Stand and The Peak and The View in The Grandstand will be closed on VRC Standish Handicap Race Day.
