The Festival of Racing is upon us for 2018 and again promises to be an unmissable event, showcasing this season's best thoroughbred racing at Victoria’s most iconic racecourses from February 10 to March 24. Featuring the first Group 1 race meetings of the calendar year, the Festival of Racing is where the new stars of the track come out to play, with the $1.5 million Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes one of many highlights of the Festival.

An event like no other, the Festival of Racing is the ideal time to enjoy Group 1 racing, great food, fashion and entertainment, all in a relaxed atmosphere.

So gather your friends, and spread out on the front lawn at Caulfield, Flemington, The Valley or a country racecourse, because the races are calling!
