The VRC looks forward to welcoming owners back to Flemington and celebrating together the race days we all know and love.

We are so excited to host owners once again in the Mounting Yard along with the Owners & Trainers Lounge. Owners can now freely visit the Horse Stalls and Pre Parade Ring when they wish to see their horse and or liaise with the stable connections.

In order to provide the best possible experience for owners with a horse/s running at Flemington, the Club shares the following information to ensure owners are aware of their race day entitlements and their time at Flemington comprises comfort, enjoyment and the best of racetrack theatre.

Owner Ticketing

Owners who require ticketing can access a ticket on line post Acceptances, via the Racing Australia myhorseracing.horse portal, for themselves and one (1) guest. Owner ticketing entails racecourse entry, access to the Unreserved Members Enclosure areas including the Club Stand ground floor retail venues, Mumm Champagne Bar, Bluegrass Bar, Furlong Bar, Rooftop Bar, along with the unreserved areas of the Member Grandstand as detailed here.

If your horse is owned in a syndicate, only the Syndicate Manager can log-in to the myhorseracing portal and download up to 20 tickets if the syndicate fully owns the horse, and five tickets when syndicate part-own the horse.

Member Dress Regulations apply with this owner ticketing and should an owner/owner guest not comply, this ticketing can be revoked on the race day.

Importantly, other requirements for all owner/owner guests attending include the need to be double vaccinated and show proof of vaccination upon entry to Flemington. These measures will ensure the safety of all patrons under the Victorian Government Event Framework Plan.
