The VRC has always been vitally aware of the importance of nurturing winter racing.

With prizemoney and prestige being devoted to horses young and established, sprinter and stayer, the Club has been committed to upholding the rich tradition of winter entertainment that started many years ago.

Flemington’s winter series has provided many memorable moments and also launched spring contenders, with many of its race series named after past greats of the turf. The series heats are held across multiple Victorian racecourses before culminating in a thrilling day of racing, Flemington Finals Day, Saturday 2 July.

The format offers ballot exemption for the winner and runner-up in each heat; entry is not restricted beyond the ballot exemptions won via the various series heats.
