It was stride for stride to the line in CS Hayes Stakes on Black Caviar, The Great Horse Race Day. We can't wait to see Alligator Blood and Catalyst go head to head again next Saturday at Flemington. In the words of Matt Hill "bring on the Guineas"! #AusGuineas @Kennedyauofficial 📸 @vinnycenzo_ig @australianassociatedpress
“Lighting doesn’t usually strike twice so if I get anything close to him, I’d be the luckiest bloke in the world.” – Greg Eurell 2006 Australian Guineas winner, people’s favourite and @livingLegendsau Apache Cat will be joining us at Flemington next Saturday 29 February for Australian Guineas Day, make sure you visit the stalls to give this champ a pat and a carrot or two! #AusGuineas
While Black Caviar was visiting Flemington, another special guest made an appearance at the 133rd running of the Buchan Cup! The once a year race meet was run against all odds after the track sustained significant damage during the January fires. To celebrate we took the 2020 People’s Cup to the East Gippsland community, who have experienced the unthinkable but rallied together to ensure their beloved race day could go ahead.

Despite the wet weather there were plenty of smiles from our members and racegoers today. Looking forward to our next Group 1 race day in two weeks, Australian Guineas Day.
Celebrity chef @diana .chan.au joined us in The Terrace Restaurant today, delivering a Malaysian inspired degustation for guests.
The Hawker Market wasn’t just about delicious eats, there was also fun, themed entertainment at the Hawker Market. From live performances by Bollywood dancers and Tommy The Noodle Man’s spectacular show making fresh noodles to tea leaf readings, Chinese Astrologists and roving cartoon characters.
Well that was a pleasant surprise! Mark Zahra pilots Gytrash to take out the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning, beating favourites Redzel, Loving Gaby and Nature Strip.

There’s been plenty of excitement off the track too, like this live performance by Bollywood dancers at the Hawker Market earlier today.
What a race! Alligator Blood and Catalyst went head-to-head in the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes. But you can’t mess with the Gator! 🐊
