The Festival of Racing proved to be an unmissable event, showcasing the season's best thoroughbred racing at Victoria’s most iconic racecourses from February 10 to March 24. Nine Group 1 races were run and won, with Lindsay Park's Redkirk Warrior notching back-to-back Newmarket Handicaps in a stellar display.

Entertainment was overflowing during the Festival of Racing, with the Bondi Sands Pool Party a highlight at Caulfield. For foodies, it was the Flemington Grazing Trail and Cellar Door that indulged crowds under the warm sunshine on Super Saturday. Families were treated to numerous options with Kelly Sports offering free activities at country racedays, whilst racegoers were left spoilt for choice with themed evenings under the Friday Night Lights at The Valley.
