The Festival of Racing is Victoria’s six-week summer and autumn showpiece that features Group 1 racing action on the track, and delicious food, relaxed fashion and family-friendly entertainment off it. Boasting prizemoney and bonuses of over $30 million, the Festival of Racing is headlined by nine Group 1 races and 13 country cups and will see many of the stars of the 2018 Spring Racing Carnival return in search of further glory. 

 The Group 1 action gets underway at Caulfield on Saturday 9 February with the Ladbrokes C.F. Orr Stakes. There is plenty to see and do at this year's Festival of Racing.
