Gallop to Royal Randwick For Champion Stakes

On Saturday 11th October, one of the most glamorous events of the season takes place – the Moët & Chandon Spring Champion Stakes Day. This ‘carnival’ style trackside event is where all the ladies have the opportunity to parade with their most outrageous hats (Ascot style), everyone’s dressed up to the nines and famous faces are in abundance.

With the Moët & Chandon listed races, there’s the famous $400,000 Champion race featuring the country’s best jockeys, horses and trainers. Fashion, fillies and hospitality is a must if you want to mingle with the who’s who of high society.
This is a fantastic event for wining and dining clients so remember to bring your picnic hampers, bar platters and flutes for a glass of bubbly.
For $20 a ticket, this includes the Myer Fashions on the Field competition, with a prize pool over $100,000. The prizes include a share of the $10,000 in Myer Shopping Spree alongside return economy Emirates flights to Europe, Nicholas Haywood Diamond Set Collection, Longines watches and a cruise sponsored by Celebrity Cruises.  
Live music is in abundance and only 20 minutes drive from Sydney, there are free buses transporting you to and from the official post race venue within the grounds.  Also remember to check out the Clinique Lounge with complimentary make up tips and touch ups!
The first race starts at 1.10pm but the doors open nearly a couple of hours earlier so you can get familiar with the lay of the land. As the last race is 530pm, this is a full packed day of socializing at its finest.
As the event has a minimum 18 years old age restriction, maybe if you’re a NSW resident, leave the kids at home and pamper yourself for a few hours at the races.
After a long day of cheering on the horses, you’ll need a relaxing and inspiring view of the Harbour as the sun settles. At one of the most affordable, boutique hotels in Sydney, check out the aerial video on Cremorne Point Manor’s home page and get racing to the reservations page as rooms book quickly.
